Ireland Baldwin Posts Nearly Nude Instagram Photo

Ireland Baldwin Posts Racy Instagram Photo As She Embarks On Modeling Career

Ireland Baldwin gave Instagram followers an eyeful on Wednesday, with the 18-year-old posting a nearly nude selfie that she took during a photo shoot.

The 18-year-old daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger was actually wearing a towel, but it wasn’t clear in the picture that Ireland posted. To help avoid confusion, Ireland added the hashtag #imwearingatowel in the photo’s caption.

“Can’t believe how bomb sauce you girls are @hairbymarilee and @makeupbyliz. I don’t want to wash it all off!! #bemineforeva #imwearingatowel,” Ireland wrote.

Ireland Baldwin also posted a new picture of her in a bikini, and hasn’t been shy about showing off some skin. She showed up to the red carpet of the Sports Illustrated‘s 50 Years of Beautiful party wearing a white and black Keepsake minidress with a plunging neckline.

Ironically, Ireland Baldwin got into modeling in part because she wasn’t comfortable with her body. Last year Ireland told Elle magazine that she didn’t think she could make it as a model, but her mother encouraged her to give it a try.

“She thought it would be good for my confidence because I never thought of myself as a pretty girl,” Ireland explained.

But Ireland added that she’s afraid of reaching the level of fame her parent have attained, one that also comes with the constant pressure of photographers and tabloids.

“I would look at [my parents] and go, ‘Jesus, how miserable is that?’ I didn’t want to be followed,” she said.

Though she may be taking a glamorous approach on the red carpet, Ireland Baldwin said she and boyfriend Slater Trout are thinking about a low-key Valentine’s Day.

“I guess I have to figure something out, being the boy,” Slater said. “We’ll do something exciting, something probably athletic, maybe paddling, hiking.”
