No one is more of an It Girl right now than Hailey Baldwin. We posted about her as an up and comer back in May and it turns out we were dead on. Hailey has been pushed into the spotlight as her modeling career has taken off, her membership secured in today’s girl squad. Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about the hottest member of the 21st century brat pack.
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have always denied rumors that they are together. Justin recently said to GQ that Hailey is someone “I really love. We spend a lot of time together.” Rumors of the two love birds, who have known each other since they were 13, started to circulate when they took a trip together over New Year’s and Hailey made Justin get corn rows. We hear Selena may be back in the picture, Team Gomez or Baldwin?
On being multi-talented
Right now Hailey is focused on her modeling career, where she is signed with top agencies. She also has a background in dance and loves acting: no surprise given her father is Stephen Baldwin. “In my spare time I like to act. I love theatre. One thing a lot of people don’t know about me is that I’m obsessed with Broadway musicals and I trained for about seven years in musical theatre.”
On her famous family
Hailey comes from celebrity family: her father is Stephen Baldwin and her uncle is Alec Baldwin.
On her squad
The list of Hailey’s BFFs include Kylie and Kendall Jenner, as well as Gigi and Bella Hadid. She added, “Plus, I’m in a job that all of my really good friends are in. They are the ones who are my security blanket. If I didn’t have them, I think I’d be freaking out, lol!”
On her sister
Her older sister Alaia is also getting into modeling. Like Bella and Gigi Hadid, the sister’s looks are girl next door and edgy rockstar.
On being homeschooled
She was homeschooled after grade 8 because it was hard going to regular school with such a famous family. “The thing that was annoying about having an uncle that’s in 30 Rock is that kids [her age] didn’t understand it. They’re like, ‘What?’ Then they’re like, ‘You have to go away to LA with your dad, what?’ And they didn’t get that. And that’s what I’ve struggled with my whole life in school, too.”
On who makes the first move
Hailey has admitted that she likes it when boys make the first move.
On her style
Hailey is big on the laid back look. She rocks skinny jeans and ripped denim on the regular. We’ve noticed that’s sort of become the uniform of her squad.
On her beauty look
Hailey isn’t a fan of heavy makeup, even going so far as saying that “makeup looks bad.” Even on the red carpet she goes for highlights and a bright lip color instead of heavy makeup. This gives her a glowing complexion we’re definitely envious of.

On making her own clothes
“I love making shorts out of jeans, or customizing denim. Basically, I like to rip and distress things… I love that look. I’ll admit, I’ve had some disasters — you know, you cut without measuring anything first, and then you’ve totally ruined a dress — but cutoffs are pretty easy.”
On Leonardo DiCaprio
She loves Leonardo but when she met him he was more interested in her mother. “She was sitting in a bar here in London and Leonardo DiCaprio came up to her and asked her on a date. She was like, yeah, sure, you can ask my husband first. And he was like, ‘Ooh, never mind.” OMG
