Hailey Baldwin has had a successful year, landing roles in high profile international runway shows, shoe and beauty collaborations, as well as a Marie Claire cover.
However, while Baldwin is working to catch up with model pals Kendall Jenner and Gigi and Bella Hadid, she told Yahoo Lifestyle that there is a limit to what she will do to achieve success.
“I wouldn’t ever pose naked,” Baldwin shared, adding, “I’m fine to do bikinis and certainly lingerie if I feel like it’s done tastefully… but nothing like raunchy or overly sexual.”
She also draws the line against posing topless, explaining, “I don’t like nipple.” The comments may seem contradictory to her appearance in the racy Love advent calendar, though Baldwin feels it is just sexy enough. “I just try to make sure I’m not overdoing it in the sexiness,” she shared.
Meanwhile, her friends have posed both topless and nude for magazine shoots as well as fashion campaigns. Gigi famously appeared naked on the covers of Allure and French Vogue. Bella went completely nude for French Vogue as well as in a spread shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott just months after her sister’s revealing cover.
And Jenner is famously free with her body, writing on her app, “I really don’t see what the big deal is with going braless! I think it’s cool and I really just don’t care! It’s sexy, it’s comfortable, and I’m cool with my breasts.”
The daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin is okay with the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, however, and dreams of one day joining Jenner and the Hadids in the show.
“I can’t say that for sure I’ll ever get it in my life,” she said of booking the show. “But I think it’s definitely a dream of every model.”
For now Baldwin is likely focused on her new beauty line, Hailey Baldwin for ModelCo, as well as her shoe collaboration with Public Desire Footwear, the latter of which launched in October.
