Who inspire Hailey Baldwin on her style
“I must have been 11 or 12 when I got my first Uggs,” said Hailey Baldwin, the Santa Barbara-based Australian founded surf brand’s latest campaign star. The 19-year-old model styles her cozy, suede boots much the same way she did when she was a kid: think skinny jeans or sweats when she wants to be super comfy. “I’m wearing them with jean shorts right now but with the Ugg Classic Street collection it’s a lot easier to pair boots with day-to-day clothing,” she says.
Baldwin is often spotted alongside her fellow model buddies including Kendall Jenner, and sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid, and admits taking style cues from “people I work with, and [people I] look up to.” The cool off-duty ensembles she has been known to wear a lace dress with sneakers, say— are inspired by superstars such as Margot Robbie and Rihanna. “I love Rihanna, I think her style just pushes a lot of boundaries,” she says. “My tomboy side takes inspiration from her.”
Baldwin’s fashion ethos is also all about comfort, just as you might expect. “I keep it true to myself simple and chic and classic, but at the same time a little bit edgy,” she says. Her go-to uniform for castings is easily replicable“all black everything, pair of jeans, boots or heeled boots, and a leather jacket”—though her all-time favorite piece for any occasion is probably the bomber. “I have to stop buying so many because it’s getting ridiculous!” says Baldwin who plans to up her fall fashion game with pieces from Emilio Pucci, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel. As for as how’s she’s prepping for fashion-month travel?
Let’s just say she’s not scrimping on chic layering pieces. “I hate being cold on airplanes,” she says. “It’s always going to be some type of sweatshirt, I really like Vetements.” Is there anything she’s excited to see this season? “New Saint Laurent, because Anthony [Vaccarello] has taken over—now that’s going to be interesting.” No doubt her new street style wardrobe will be, too.
