Ireland Baldwin Takes A Shot At Other Models With A Revealing Photo
Ireland Baldwin’s latest lingerie photo came along with a strong message that might have been directed at some of her fellow models.
The daughter of actors Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger shared a photo of herself on Instagram Thursday morning and she included an emotional message in the caption.
“This is who I am, take it or leave it,” she wrote. “I am not going to be body shamed for being pale or not stick thin. I’m not going to spend hours photoshopping my authenticity away. I’m not going to beat myself up for not looking like someone else.”
Although the 21-year-old model opened up about herself in the post, and many have praised the positive message she’s promoting, it almost seems like a shot at other models. (SLIDESHOW: Hailey Baldwin Ranks No. 1 On Maxim’s Hot 100 List)
In today’s modeling industry, many aspiring models use Instagram as a platform to launch their career. Those who don’t have the benefit of being famous to begin with have to start somewhere and probably spend a lot of time editing their photos to make them look just right.
Although Ireland has been able to make a name for herself with her work, she continued to say she’s still self conscious “most days.”
“I want to be as real as possible with everyone that follows because to be quite honest, what is even the point of social media if you can’t be who you truly are?” she added. “I’m not here to mindfuck all of you into believing I am something that I’m not. I’m forever on a journey of finding myself and I will continue to work as hard as I can to make myself proud.”
