Hailey Baldwin Gets the High-Fashion Seal of Approval with 6 April Covers

Hailey Baldwin Gets the High-Fashion Seal of Approval with 6 April Covers:

International fashion magazines have not been hesitant to take advantage of the growing pool of American celebrity offspring models. The latest issues of French publication Jalouse and L'Officiel Netherlands, in particular, have given Hailey Baldwin a big, simultaneous editorial sign of approval.

When it rains, it pours for the 18-year-old: These are her first major magazine covers ever, and L'Officiel gave Baldwin not one but five, on which she wears spring 2015 looks by Dior, Gucci, Prada and Dries van Noten — along with some hair extensions that make her almost unrecognizable. She looks more herself, with minimal make up and wavy hair, on the '80s-themed cover of Jalouse.

Baldwin hasn't quite had the same clear-cut, high-fashion modeling trajectory as her buddies (and fellow celebrity children) Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. She's walked a few runways, scored editorials in books like Wonderland and Love and, in her biggest break so far, been cast as the face of Topshop denim. In most of her gigs, Baldwin's role has felt more like that of an influencer or ambassador than a true fashion model, but these latest covers suggest she can do it all.
