Walkways, flashes, makeup, clothes and hairstyles. The world of Hailey Baldwin today revolves around the fashion industry, and the image that she wants to show the world. At the age of 21, his slender body of 1,71 meters with infinite legs parades through the most coveted catwalks, and poses for the lenses of the most required photographers. If we talk about an it girl, she meets the definition at the letter.

Hailey was born into a famous family: the Baldwin, a quartet of famous brothers and actors of Hollywood. She is the daughter of Stephen Baldwin – the youngest – and niece of Alec Baldwin, the most prestigious and largest of the four. Unlike the acting clan that surrounds her, she always knew that her was the fashion universe. When she was little, her great desire was to become a professional dancer. However, an injury prevented the girl from following that path, and rediscovered her vocation on the catwalk.
She is originally from Arizona and is part of the prestigious IMG modeling agency, which also includes the sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid, and the top Kendall Jenner, among many other stars of modeling.
In 2015, the young woman briefly left with Justin Bieber. Although the relationship was short, today they are still friends. Then, the top model said it was very difficult to be in a relationship with someone in the industry, and that it was difficult to find someone to share their values.
Beyond her personal life, the cachet of the model has not stopped climbing to match her colleagues and friends like the Hadid or Kendall Jenner. But his career in the world of fashion has just begun. Little by little, brands call her thinking that she can become the successor of her catwalk companions.
Baldwin has already starred in several covers and editorials of the most important fashion and lifestyle magazines in the world, including Elle (Spain, UK, and Japan editions); Marie Claire Italy; Wonderland and Harper’s Bazaar (editions of Turkey and Australia). Despite having had several publishers in Vogue, until February of this year the model had never managed to be on the cover of “the fashion Bible.” That changed in March, when she was portrayed by Liz Collins for Vogue Turkey. The honor of starring on the cover of Vogue Turkey was shared with the model Valentine Rontez.
Hailey is today considered one of the great promises of the fashion industry. It is called for the best parades and catwalks in the world, and dazzles with its poise and its magnetism, which highlight each design to the maximum. He stepped on a catwalk for the first time with the English giant Topshop in 2014 and from there he climbed Moschino, Tommy Hilfiger, Dolce & Gabbana, Zadig & Voltaire, Off White and Bottega Veneta.
Along with the top model with vitigil Winnie Harlow, today stars in the last campaign of Tommy Hilfiger.
“They open the way for the next generation of Tommy women, facing their challenges with safety, dedication and optimism.” These qualities and shared values encourage me to welcome our family, they are the most desired models of the moment, they are becoming future icons, captivating his audience with his powerful strength and inner fire, “said designer Tommy

And if one’s own style, Baldwin’s dress is very diverse and difficult to define. It can be seen through the streets of Los Angeles, New York, Paris or Milan with outfits with rock, sporty, formal and bright airs, but always setting trends and hand in hand with the best brands.

Dolce & Gabbana was another brand that trusted in Baldwin. In the last fashion week of Milan, he was part of a fashion show inspired by millennials. She wore a tunic made of net and gauze with lace details on a corseted bodice and short set. In a report for the magazine Glamor, she confessed that she was very nervous before the show and shared an anecdote: “After I saw the pictures and I was holding my breath all the time”.
