Ireland Baldwin promised she was ready to work, and she wasn’t kidding: the 17-year-old daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger has already cranked her modeling career into high gear.

“I’m getting into it. Doing it right,” Baldwin told reporters at the Avion Espresso-sponsored N.Y.C. premiere of The Company You Keep. “I want to know where it’s going to take me!”

Baldwin listed models that inspire her, including Miranda Kerr, Kate Moss — “Oh! And my mom, of course!” — adding that Basinger is playing modeling coach on the photoshoot sets.

“My mom’s very happy she can finally give me tips,” Baldwin said. “She’s always there, so she’ll stand in the back and say, ‘Turn your head this way, or do this!'”

And we thought it was only our moms telling us to stand up straight!

Tell us: Are you excited to see Baldwin’s first modeling shots?

She’s a pretty girl. Her mom was pretty in her days too, but she doesn’t seem like a very nice lady. Then again, what do I know? I don’t know her. Haha.

She’s attractive, but her mom was stunning. I wonder how much work she’s getting because of the name?

Jennifer on

She doesn’t look 17. She looks about the same age as her mother.

Her Mother truly had super model looks in her day. Kim was stunning. I don’t see super model looks in her. But good luck.

She not attractive like her mother . She looks average at best.

I wonder if she is still the selfish little pig that her father said she was.

I’m sooooo sick of this trend that kids from famous parents or famous sibs (Kendall Jenner is now a model thanks to the fame of her sisters) are given an automatic pass even if it’s not warranted. Sorry, but this girl does not have what it takes to be a model. Neither does Kendall Jenner.

@ dede: One does not need looks to get into acting or modeling if they come from a show business family.

WiddoMouse on

She looks very tall and lean. Isn’t that what you need to be a model? The Baldwin name certainly won’t hurt.

Shannon on

She is gorgeous! She got the best of both parents.
