Ireland Baldwin changed image to become model
Ireland Baldwin says signing with IMG Models in 2013 made her change her outlook on fashion and fitness.
Ireland Baldwin completely reinvented her image to become a model.
The 18-year-old beauty - who is the daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger - signed a contract with IMG Models last year and says landing her big break revolutionised her attitude towards both fashion and fitness.
She joked in an interview with Galore magazine: ''I resorted to sweatpants, messy buns and converse as if it were uniform. If I was feeling adventurous, I'd throw yoga pants on.
''That was primarily because my diet consisted of Cup of Noodles and bagels so I needed the yoga pants to hold it all together.
''When I stepped into this world and truly got a feeling for what it's all about, I literally said to myself, oh s**t.''
Ireland claims she only grew into her looks in her teens and quickly realised she be might be able to carve out a career as a model.
She said: ''When I got my braces taken off and let my bowl cut grow out, I realized that I was a girl. So, that was when I realized there could be potential here.''
The blonde is getting herself in shape for the summer with a healthy eating plan and strict workout regime.
She added: ''The only way to feel good in a bikini is to treat your body right. Eat clean. Train. Stretch. Tone.''
