Ireland Baldwin Cover Pics Show Off Bikini Body: Is She the Fashion World's Next Big Thing? [PICS]
Ireland Baldwin, daughter of "30 Rock" star Alec Baldwin, has been garnering quite a bit of attention lately. She's taken part in numerous modeling campaigns and appears poised to be the next big name in fashion.
Most recently, she's taken part in a photo shoot for the New York Post as well as one for Beach: Modern Luxury magazine. At just 17-years-old she appears to be poised to take the fashion world by storm and has every advantage at her fingertips.
"I think everyone's really happy for me," Baldwin said. "It's been, so far, just such a fun ride. They're really happy that it's building confidence for me and it's getting me out there, so I think that everyone's just motivating me to keep going with it."
Baldwin definitely gets her good looks from her mother, Kim Basinger. Her statuesque frame and porcelain skin will certainly endear her to any number of different designers and modeling agencies. Baldwin is currently signed on as a model for IMG.
She has also been in the news lately after her relationship with professional stand-up paddle surfer Slater Trout. The two have been seen beach side in Hawaii, and it appears that things may be getting more serious. Trout, who is 18, has already been invited up to New York by Alec Baldwin.
"I have never met anyone who is a more incredible person in my life," Ireland Baldwin told People magazine of her boyfriend last month. "I would say he is my best friend. We can act stupid in public, private, or wherever and we are always laughing."
So just what is next for the young fashion model? Only time will tell, but it appears that her future couldn't be much brighter.
"The paths my modeling career will take me on. I'm excited to work and study acting as well," she notes, taking the time to quote Ghandi and wax poetic for a second: "A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes."
