Ireland Baldwin shows an incredible resemblance to her mother Kim Basinger as she attended the amfAR Inspiration Gala in New York on Thursday in a breath-taking black gown.
Ireland Baldwin, 17, 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.
Large silver cluster earrings and heavy sparkling bangles added a dramatic touch, while Ireland Baldwin kept her makeup simple with pale lips, lush dark lashes, and smooth bronzed skin.

Ireland Baldwin’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, Ireland Baldwin looked shockingly similar to her stunning mom, Kim Basinger.
Ireland Baldwin, who recently scored a top contract with agency IMG, recently told People.com 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.”
She said she was inspired by a number of contemporary models including Kate Moss and Miranda Kerr, but of course also looks up to Kim Basinger.
“Oh! And my mom, of course,” Ireland Baldwin 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>>.”
Lindsay Lohan drew attention to herself for all the wrong reasons at the amfAR New York Gala at Cipriani Wall Street last night.
Lindsay Lohan looked years older than her quarter of a century, as she appeared on the red carpet sporting a matronly look, and heavy make-up for the stylish affair last night.
The actress was looking almost unrecognizable with her overly bleached hair, badly cut fringe and glazed expression.
Lindsay Lohan’s white dress by Tom Ford did little to reveal her real age and the midi-length white shift dress, complete with modest v-neckline and sleeves, did little to flatter her figure.
While she might have hammed it up for the cameras on the red carpet, smiling broadly at times, she appeared vacant with a blank expression on her face.
Perhaps the stresses of recent months which have been fraught with legal woes, her probation obligations and allegations she has been drinking, which she strongly denies, have taken their toll on Lindsay Lohan.

Lindsay Lohan was joined by a whole host of famous faces at the event at Cipriani Wall Street and unlike the actress, most stars looked chic and stylish at the fashion event.
Supermodel Heidi Klum, who last month revealed she was splitting from husband Seal, attended the event in a long black gown with metallic sequin embellishment and accessorized with her wedding ring, which she has yet to take off.
While there was plenty of glamour on the red carpet, fashionista Sarah Jessica Parker certainly didn’t play it safe when it came to her ensemble.
Sarah Jessica Parker donned a pale pink dress which boasted considerable material around the skirt and trail, curiously teaming the feminine dress with a black leather biker jacket.
To complete the miss-matched look the actress had donned a pair of short white gloves.
Liz Hurley stepped out in a plunging stone colored dress which complimented her incredible figure to perfection.
On her arm she stepped out with beau and Australian cricketer Shane Warne who was looking dapper in his dinner suit.
Cindy Crawford looked stunning in a plunging dress with beaded detail while, Linda Evangelista opted for a suit with just a bra underneath.
Model Erin Heatherton opted for a midnight blue strapless dress which boasted a corset detail for the evening which kicks off Fall 2012 Fashion Week.
One of the most stylish dressers of the evening was Bridesmaid’s star Rose Byrne who looked incredibly chic in a fitted cream and black lace dress.
Pregnant actress Molly Sims covered up her baby bump in a flowing white gown which she teamed with a cropped fur jacket.
Jennifer Hudson appeared to have released her wild side and stepped out with big crimped hair which she teamed with a mocha-colored dress boasting a thigh high split.
Sinead O’Connor debuted her newly shaven head and her tattoos at amfAR Inspiration Gala in Hollywood last night.
With her fuller figure, unmatching purple dress and ensemble of tattoos, Sinead O’Connor, 44, looked a far from her chart-topping self in the 1990s.
The Irish singer explained in an interview once: “I’d been trying to grow it, but someone asked if I was Enya. I was so shocked, I shaved all my hair off.
“I don’t feel like me unless I have my hair shaved. So even when I’m an old lady, I’m going to have it.”
Sinead O’Connor and Blondie singer Deborah Harry looked more erratic than elegant as they posed together at the amfAR Inspiration Gala held at West Hollywood hotel, The Château Marmont.
Sinead O’Connor showed off her colourful Jesus tattoo in the centre of her chest and the inking down her forearms.

Deborah Harry also looked bizarre, with an unflattering tartan red, black and white dress which she eccentrically teamed with fishnet pop socks, black elbow length gloves and high heels.
The singers seemed particularly happy to see each other at the event, in aid of amfAR, the foundation for AIDS research, and posed for several photographs together.
Sinead O’Connor has recently been hitting the headlines for her personal life, splitting from her third husband Steve Cooney in March.
Sinead O’Connor has also recently criticized the UK X Factor for the way the judges treat the contestants.
“I find it hard to watch it,” the singer said.
“I don’t think the people running the show are the kind of people who think about the effect of their behaviour upon people.”
Sinead O’Connor and Deborah Harry also performed at the event which attracted many celebrities as Sandra Bullock, Colin Farrell and Rose McGowan.
Sinead O’Connor put in an energetic performance on the outdoor stage to the assembled partygoers.
Deborah Harry, 66, tours and releases records with Blondie which still consists of her former boyfriend Chris Stein.
