Ireland Baldwin sure is making a splash in the modeling industry. The 17-year-old daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin signed with IMG back in March, and has just landed a major spread … in the New York Post. Yep, the Post.
In her spread, the newly-minted model flaunts her bikini bod aboard a boat that made its way around the New York Harbor. Not to make a dig at the newspaper or anything, but couldn’t Ireland’s agents at IMG have helped her land a bigger and better debut?
Well, according to Ireland, making it into the pages of the newspaper was quite the intentional move. Her dad (you know, Alec) had a run-in with a Post photographer back in February, and seeing how there’s been a bit of bad blood in their father-daughter relationship, this spread is like giving her dad the bird.
In her own words:
“You know, he has his own agenda and I have my own. I think he’s very outspoken and he has his opinions, and he’s him and I’m me, and I know he’s done things that he regrets himself and that he’s sorry for, but you know, the past is the past.”
Or is it?
