Ireland Baldwin promised she was ready to work, and she wasn’t kidding: the 17-year-old daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger has already cranked her modeling career into high gear.

“I’m getting into it. Doing it right,” Baldwin told reporters at the Avion Espresso-sponsored N.Y.C. premiere of The Company You Keep. “I want to know where it’s going to take me!”

Baldwin listed models that inspire her, including Miranda Kerr, Kate Moss — “Oh! And my mom, of course!” — adding that Basinger is playing modeling coach on the photoshoot sets.

“My mom’s very happy she can finally give me tips,” Baldwin said. “She’s always there, so she’ll stand in the back and say, ‘Turn your head this way, or do this!’”

And we thought it was only our moms telling us to stand up straight!

Tell us: Are you excited to see Baldwin’s first modeling shots?

Pretty girl, but doesn’t have her mother’s stunning looks or her sparkling personality. I would never pick Ireland out of a crowd, other than to notice she’s as tall as a giraffe. I’m not seeing “supermodel” material in Ireland – and I think she should go to college instead of riding on her parent coattails. Let’s face it, she got the job because of her connections. Which is fine – but she’d be better off going to college and getting an education.

There are so many models who work regularly and I wouldn’t call them “stunning”. Miranda Kerr is attractive and has a great figure, but she isn’t “stunning”. Same would be said for Heidi Klum; pretty, but not stunning. What a model really needs is to be able to wear clothes well, walk well in the clothes, and carry off “the look” necessary to make the clothes look great. If you are demanding “stunning”, Liz Taylor was, and she never modeled–she was an actress.

Oh, and most people are sick of seeing the “selfish pig” remark brought up. Long ago and far away, and it needs to stay there. If Ireland isn’t worrying about it, you shouldn’t be either!

Very pretty, wholesome looking, All-American girl. I think her mother had more of the sexy sizzling look. I hope she does well.

She is an average looking girl who doesn’t deserve accolade. Her mother is stunning, but apparently a nut. What her mother SHOULD be doing is helping “Ireland” (ridiculous name) prepare for college so that she can have an education and perhaps do something meaningful with her life. Ridiculous. The swimsuit photos are tacky, vulgar, and silly. She is only seventeen. I guess this is what becomes of kids who have two idiots for parents. Good Luck, Ireland.
