Before becoming one of the hottest models of the moment, Hailey Baldwin was actually a classically trained ballerina. Impressive! Now the model is fusing her two talents in a recent ballerina themed photoshoot with Inge Fonteyne.
A behind the scenes photo shared to Baldwin’s Instagram sees her styled in a modern take of the classic Prima Ballerina. Sporting a traditional ballet bun, tights, and pair of pointe shoes, the gorgeous shoot adds a edgy twist by putting Baldwin in an oversized bomber with “Supreme” emblazoned across the shoulders.
Baldwin also shared another behind the scenes shot from this session to celebrate reaching 9 million followers on Instagram. The second photo is a closer up of the beautiful 20 year-old looking over her shoulder, showing her in a no-makeup look and biting her finger, phone in hand.
The photoshoot must have been nostalgic for Baldwin, as she previously was so dedicated to Ballet that she would spend the entirety of her summers training at the American Ballet Theatre School. A video shared to the starlet’s Instagram a few months ago shows us Baldwin in all her ballerina glory.
How does the young, successful model feel about spending her younger years dancing now? Baldwin shares that the sport helped her cope with being scrutinized and bullied by the public. The high standards she was held to as a dancer taught her how to take criticism. Who could have guessed she would go from a professional ballerina to professionally modeling as a ballerina!
