Model, Insta-famous star and new Ugg ambassador Hailey Baldwin loves to show some leg in a seemingly endless collection of booty shorts — and her 7.1 million followers on Instagram can’t get enough. Two people who wouldn’t mind seeing a little less skin? Her dad, actor Stephen Baldwin, and mom, Kennya.
“My dad is the one who will pull me aside and be like, ‘You do know that I will get my ass on a plane anywhere and drag you anywhere out by your hair if I feel so necessary?’ And I’m like, ‘Yes, I understand,” the 19-year-old jokes. “But usually he minds his own business, which is cool.”
Her mom is actually a little more intense, she admits. “My mom’s the one who pays way more attention,” says Baldwin. “She will be like, ‘So, I saw this photo of you and what’s up with that?’ Or, ‘I saw this photo of this person, you know why is she doing this?’ I’m like, ‘Why are you even Googling this? How did you even see that?'”
When it comes to booty shorts specifically, like the ones in her brand new Ugg campaign and the ones seen on Instagram (below), she says, “I’ve probably worn them and been yelled at by my parents for being seen in them.” As for how to pick the right pair? “I think there’s that fine line of how much is coming out of the bottom of the shorts, so maybe don’t wear ones that are too high-cut at the back,” she suggests.
Overall, her goal in dressing, which she does with the help of stylist Maeve Reilly, is to look approachable. “I just want to be relatable, but that’s not a forced thing, it’s just by staying who I am,” she says. “I don’t ever want people to think it’s any type of façade or put on cause it’s really the way I behave on camera and off camera is really just me.”
“I just think I hope that when people look at me and they look at what I do, they realize that I am quite simple,” she continues. “I stay very true, hopefully, to who I am and what I represent and family. I don’t ever want people to look at me and be like, ‘Oh, her lifestyle or what she wears or what she does is so unattainable.’ I like to be relatable to people because that’s just normal.”
So, that begs the questions: Can you relate to her love of booty shorts? Let us know in the comments below.
