Hailey Baldwin is so in love with fashion, she’s willing to risk injury for a memorable street style moment.
“Sometimes I will literally walk through SoHo in, like, giant shoes and almost break my ankle in cobblestone, but all for the sake of the look,” she told InStyle on Tuesday night inside New York’s Dream Downtown hotel, where the beauty was on hand to celebrate the launch of her new UGG Classic Street campaign.
For the 19-year-old model, the secret to catching the attention of photographers is found in simply being herself. “I’m very all-American and I think that denim is a big staple of that. I like to do denim on denim, denim cutoffs—I just like denim,” she said. And while indigo separates always look great on her, Baldwin relies on an expansive collection of shoes when it’s time to change it up.
Just how vast is her archive? “Ouch. Pretty large,” she told us, moving on to dish on the surprising style she loves the most. “I’m a big fan of sneakers, like, I like a lot of sneakers. So I kind of collect sneakers almost, but a lot of boots, heels, I like a lot of chunky shoes.” As for whether she prefers to stay on the ground or reach the sky in heels: “probably more of a flats kind of girl, but it depends.”
In addition to sneakers, the new UGG campaign girl also loves rocking the brand’s comfy boots, which she began wearing when she was “11 or 12.” “I think it was just those classic, chestnut-colored tall UGG boots … they’re just classic,” she said.
