Hamptons regular Ireland Baldwin, daughter of Amagansett’s Alec Baldwin, spoke out with a very sensible and wise a blog post last week after her physical appearance was criticized and she was called “too fat to model.” Ireland shared her modeling aspirations with the media last month, and is featured in the June issue of Vanity Fair.
Here’s what she wrote:
Of course I get those comments about how I am too fat to model, how I am not model material, how I am an unattractive girl, how I am too tall, etc. I understand. I don’t look as glamourous as Rosie Huntington Whitely when leaving the gym. I’m actually really sweaty. Like really sweaty … I AM NOT MY PARENTS. My mom is one of the most beautiful woman in the world. She is 5’9, I am 6’2. She is petite and fragile, and I am fit and…. more to love tehe. I have a booty, she has a thigh gap. As she emerged from her teen years, she developed an angular face and striking cheekbones. I am still a teen making my way out of my awkward phase. I am still trying to figure this whole thing out.
Good for you, Ireland. Keep workin’ it.
