Hailey Baldwin goes full-throttle glam in her Vogue Arabia December 2018 cover story. Bobette Cohn styles Baldwin in Tom Ford, Balmain, Marc Jacobs and luxe jewels in images by Zoey Grossman. Hailey’s interview Introducing Mrs Bieber: Hailey Opens Up About Fame, Her Father, and Starting a Family by Alexandria Gouveia presents Mrs Hailey Rhode Bieber as a reluctant celebrity.
When your father is actor Stephen Baldwin and your uncles are actors Alec and Daniel, anonymity is a neat trick – if you can manage it. Even her graphic designer mother, Kennya, is the daughter of a Grammy award-winning composer, Eumir Deodato de Almeida. Bieber attributes her down-to-earth attitude to her upbringing. Both parents were adamant to ensure that she and her sister, Alaia, had as normal a childhood as possible.
“The way they raised us was so far removed from Hollywood that we didn’t really bring any aspects of the industry into our home,” she recalls. “I got to have a normal childhood and teenage years. I didn’t start getting recognition on my own until I was around 19. There are some ‘normal’ things I never did – like go to college – but I do think I was able to learn how to have a schedule, be on time, and be responsible, all because I started working at 17. Those are skills that most people don’t start learning until later in life. I think I grew up quicker than most.”
