Ireland Baldwin, Inheritor of Kim Basinger, Stuns at Gala Event
Ireland Baldwin proved she was a force to be reckoned with in the modeling world when she attended the amfAR Inspiration Gala in New York on Thursday in a breath-taking black gown.

The 17-year-old model ruled the red carpet when she stood on the steps of the historic Plaza Hotel in Manhattan, revealing that she is true Hollywood royalty.

And it was plain to see just how much she resembled her similarly stunning mother, actress Kim Basinger.

Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger's model daughter was dripping in glamour in a curve-kissing black gown with capped sleeves that rested on her arms and showed off her toned shoulders.

The sweeping train meant that the dress was long enough even for the Amazon-sized teenager who has inherited tall genes from her 6 foot tall father and 5'6 1/2" mother, but surpassed both of them in height.

While the lace topped bodice of the beautiful dress hung low on her bust-line, the classic cut meant that the overall silhouette was elegant but not overly sexy for the 17-year-old.

Large silver cluster earrings and heavy sparkling bangles added a dramatic touch, while Ireland kept her make up simple with pale lips, lush dark lashes, and smooth bronzed skin.

Ireland's hair is most often seen loose and natural like any carefree California teen, but for the special occasion she had it secured back in a sophisticated chignon with long, perfectly straight bangs falling over her face.

As she stared out with a sultry expression through the blonde fringe, Baldwin looked shockingly similar to her stunning L.A. Confidential star mum, Kim.

Ireland, who recently scored a top contract with agency IMG, recently told she is working hard towards her goal of becoming a top model: 'I'm getting into it. Doing it right. I want to know where it's going to take me.'

Ireland said she was inspired by a number of contemporary models including Kate Moss and Miranda Kerr, but of course also looks up to Kim. 'Oh! And my mom, of course,' she told People.

'My mom's very happy she can finally give me tips. She's always there, so she'll stand in the back and say, "Turn your head this way, or do this."'

As the daughter of 30 Rock star Alec who first caught the world's attention when he called her a thoughtless 'piggy' in a phone rant, Ireland wants to send a positive message to the world.

'I want to be an inspirational model,' she told People. I want people to look at me and say, "Wow, she looks healthy."'

Despite her feel-good attitude, she has gotten a backlash of bitchy comments. 'I have received nasty e-mails, messages on Twitter and ridiculous comments not only about my size but my family,' she revealed.

'I understand that I am not a size .008. What I don't fully understand is, what is the good in commenting on a photo of a 17-year-old girl calling her fat, ugly, etc?'

With her boyfriend, professional surfer Slater Trout, far away in Maui, Ireland was kept company by designers Dean Caten and Dan Caten of DSquared at the VIP gala.

The bespectacled twin brothers, who are famous for throwing lavish fashion events, seemed happy to be dwarfed by her towering presence as the threesome enjoyed the elegant evening together.

Even though she was far away, Ireland was clearly on Slater's mind that night as he tweeted, 'I wish I was in NY,' along with a sad face as his Twitter profile showed a cute photo of the young couple kissing in the ocean.

Slater and Ireland were reunited on Sunday when he was in Santa Monica to compete in the Stand Up For Clean Water race, and the couple didn't hold back their affection by smooching in the sand.

With the pro-surfer in a shirt with his name on the back and his girlfriend in cut-off shorts and a black leather jacket, they looked like typical young love birds.

Baldwin recently proved she was still a kid at heart by posting goofy photos on Twitter and Instagram of her wearing sparkly gold glasses, and then a fake mustache as she posed next to a painting of a pug.
