Although only 17 years old, Hailey Baldwin’s career in the fashion industry is in bloom. Signed with one of the best agencies in the world Ford models, her debut modeling jobs include clients, such as Forever 21, TopShop and Zara. Moreover, she has already designed a top for cult Italian brand, Brandy Melville. “Right now I'm focused on modeling, though growing up I always wanted to be an actress,” says the beautiful blonde, who is the daughter of famous actor and director Stephen Baldwin. “Acting is something I still really want to do. I loved entertaining people and making them laugh.” It is therefore not a surprise those skills were put into play on our set in New York, as she lightened up the work day of the whole team while delivering the cool images of this shoot.
Here, Miss Baldwin gives us a glimpse of her everyday life sharing what she learnt from working on set as well as skincare and style tips.
called Nyack right outside of NYC and I loved it there. It was a great little town and I'll always consider it home.
has made me realize how much effort goes into these projects and how much more goes on behind the scenes. I wouldn't say I have one person that's a role model to me. In terms of the industry I think that Kate Moss is iconic and I definitely look to her for inspiration. Personally, I look up to my parents because they teach me so much in my life that I couldn't learn from anyone else.
I start my day by getting up, washing my face and brushing my teeth. For a shoot I like to have a good night’s sleep and I like to be well fed! Time out for me is curled up in my bed watching my shows on hulu.
a lot of the time, I really hate cold weather for my style. I love to just be in jeans or shorts and a tee shirt with boots. My style is simple. I love being comfortable. I like when it looks like you didn't try too hard but you tried just enough. I love a lot of different designers and brands. I shop a lot at Zara, TopShop, ASOS, and NastyGal. But I really love designers like Céline, Saint Laurent, and Balenciaga amongst many others.
I refused to ever have the slightest mark on my face. I am always trying new products to see how I like them. Right now I'm using an egg white face wash by a company called "Skin Food" and I'm using a line called “Skintelligence". I also eat a really clean diet with cheat days of course. But one of the keys to keeping your skin clear is healthy eating, and water.
to do my makeup it's usually just mascara and Chapstick. My favorite thing for lips is by Dior. It's called "Lip Glow”. I will not ever leave my house without my phone, charger, face moisturizer, Chapstick, and my license.
is hockey or basketball. I love going to hockey games. They're my favorite. For me personally I don't like to workout too much but I dance ballet 2 days a week. I've danced for 12 years. I used to dance everyday but had to cut down once I started getting busy. I also love Pilates.
about pretty much everything. She's always on my back about drinking water cause I never drink enough!
in the world I would NEVER turn my back on my family. My life goal is just to develop a great career for myself and to eventually settle down and just be happy!
