At request, here’s a story about a young new model: Ireland Basinger Baldwin, daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger, who wants to be a healthy-sized, inspirational model – from People:
When Ireland Basinger Baldwin signed her first professional modeling contract in March, the 17-year-old daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger had high hopes.
Not only does she aspire to some day grace the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue or pose for Victoria’s Secret, but “I want to be an inspirational model,” says the 6’2″ teen. “I want people to look at me and say, ‘Wow, she looks healthy.’ ”
But since announcing her new career with IMG – the same agency behind Gisele Bündchen and Kate Moss – she not only has experienced the encouragement of fans, she’s also heard her fair share of snark on the Internet.
“I have received nasty e-mails, messages on Twitter and ridiculous comments not only about my size but my family,” Ireland tells PEOPLE. She reached a breaking point in April and posted an open letter on Tumblr saying, “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?”
Of the backlash, Ireland admits, “I didn’t expect it. It was really surprising to see how negative people can be towards someone they don’t even know.”
What do you think? Would Ireland be a good fit for VS and Sports Illustrated?

Plus-size model treat: size 14 US (at 5’9”) Justine Legault, who is featured this month on the cover of Elle Quebec. Let’s get to know her better:
On how she was discovered:
“At my first photo shoot, I remember hearing the photographer call my agent on the phone and say, ‘Oh my god! We’ve got something here!’”
On how she takes care of herself:
“My beauty regime is similar to that of other models. Except that I love a good meal and I eat very well!”
On dealing with criticism:
“How many times have people told me during an audition: ‘I don’t like your hair, I don’t like your teeth…?’ I didn’t listen to those people and I continued to have confidence in myself. I prefer to remember compliments from people who like me how I am, and believe in me.”
… says Justine.
