Without taking into consideration her out-of-the-ordinary career as one of the world’s most in-demand models, her calm, collected and incredibly mature personality appears years beyond her age. Even the words she lives by, “We wouldn’t appreciate the good days without some bad ones,” are thoughtful and logical.
Not many people know this, but Hailey spent her childhood dancing and was destined to become a professional ballet dancer. What happened? She quit and decided to try modelling. Some might say it was a good call. Hailey is now part of the Tommy Hilfiger fashion family, and has walked for Versace and Moschino. Today, she is starring in Weekend Max Mara’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection. Evocatively named Nantucket, the 12-piece range was created in collaboration with American interior designer Anthony Baratta, and is directly inspired by the summer destination located in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
The rising star recently revealed her favourite holiday destination is the Maldives. She added, “I feel most beautiful when I’ve spent time in the sun.” And while Hailey’s natural beauty is obvious, the star admitted last month she wanted to step into 2019 being ‘more open’. “I’m insecure, I’m fragile, I have fears, I have doubts. Every single day is a confidence battle for me,” she explained to her Instagram fans.
Someone who has undoubtedly boosted Hailey’s confidence is Justin Bieber. She married the global popstar in a New York courthouse last September after a twelve-week romance in the context of a nearly ten-year friendship, and now the pair are finalising plans for a bigger wedding celebration later this year.
“The biggest surprise of my life was getting engaged,” Hailey smiles. And when asked where she’s at in her journey of balancing fame, work and personal life, she declares, “I’m in the best place I’ve ever been.” So, what is the star’s definition of a perfect date night? “Staying in, ordering food and watching TV.” And don’t assume it’s a no-carb diet featuring lettuce leaves and Fiji water. Hailey gushes about her love for burger chain Shake Shack, and says if she could solve any mystery in life it would be discovering the recipe of its special burger sauce. Looking forward, Hailey’s goals are to speak fluent Portuguese and have a family of her own. We really wouldn’t mind more Hailey Baldwins in the world.
