Ireland Baldwin: Blondes have more fun

Ireland Baldwin has revealed the modelling advice she received from mother Kim Basinger.

The daughter of actor Alec Baldwin and former model Kim Basinger is trying to follow in her mother’s fashionable footsteps.

While making her way in the modelling industry, the 17-year-old has tried a variety of different looks, but is keen to stick with a lighter hair colour.

“I’ve experimented,” she explained to Access Hollywood. “I’ve been black, I’ve been through them all, so blondes do have more fun.”

Things have certainly been going well for the pretty starlet, and Ireland covered the July edition of Modern Luxury’s Beach magazine.

Ireland looks great in the pictures, showing off her slim physique in a small white bikini as she carries a surfboard above her head.

For the model, it’s been useful having her famous mother to talk to for advice.

“My mom taught me to go on and have fun and avoid everyone else’s comments and avoid what people are going to say about you,” she revealed.

“As long as you’re the one that’s smiling and having a good time then you’re the one that’s gonna be successful.”

Along with landing her first magazine cover, Ireland has been snapped up by two lead model agencies and regularly shows off her good looks on Instagram and Twitter.

While she may look like a professional, she thinks her career will still take some getting used to.

“Slowly, surely,” she replied when asked how it’s all going.

“It’s still gonna take thousands more jobs ‘til I finally settle in… but it’s fun.”
