Coming from a famous family overflowing with top stars in the movie industry was enough inspiration to follow a career path in that regard. However, Alaia Baldwin did not become a movie star like her father but chose to blaze her own trail on the runway as a model. She is also a fashion enthusiast and has worked with several renowned brands such as Calvin Klein and prestigious agencies like VNY Models and The Squad – which currently represents her in the United States and Great Britain respectively. In the past, she worked for D’Management in Milan and State Management in New York.
Every professional has that special bigwig they look up to and for Alaia Baldwin, it is Danish model Freja Beha Erickson. Alaia also maintains a very close relationship with her sister and cousin who are equally upscale models.
Alaia Baldwin’s Bio, Age
We can only assume that Alaia had a stable childhood and enjoyed a loving family. This stems from the fact that her parents have remained together since their wedding in 1990. It is also presumed that the basic educational qualifications were acquired by Alaia as there are no specific details of where and when she attended schools in the past. Right now, her modeling career is what she throws her energy on.
Working with several brands and modeling agencies has taken her to different cities and stages and it has been a fulfilling experience all the way. Alaia Baldwin may be the eldest among her sister and cousin who are both models but she didn’t join the industry before them. Her moment came in October 2015 when she was already a 22-year-old adult. Popular model manager Rene Gonzalez was the one who scouted her after which she signed a deal with a newly established talent agency known as State Management.
She sealed the contract during the New York Fashion Week but her sister Hailey had already walked the ramp for big brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Philipp Plein at the time, both at the New York and Milan fashion weeks. While Alaia had been working as a model before then, she didn’t hit mainstream success like her sister and cousin. Signing the deal saw her move to New York City in order to keep the focus on her career fulltime. Thus far, the high-end fashion modelling world has felt her presence and even though she hasn’t reached the level of popularity her sister enjoys on social media, Alaia has attracted thousands of fans across all platforms.
Asides modelling, Alaia supports the Endometriosis Foundation of America. She also uses the power of social media to promote the awareness of endometriosis by posting about it to her thousands of followers.
