Kim Basinger Signs With IMG Models
The 60-year-old actress joins her 18-year-old daughter as a client of the massive modeling agency.
Age ain't nothing but a number -- at least not when it's concerning Kim Basinger, who inked a modeling contract with IMG Models at 60.
Not surprising since the actress, who attended the N.Y. premiere of Grudge Match Monday, looked flawless in a menswear-inspired pinstripe Ralph Lauren Collection three-piece suit with bold red lips and a slicked back ponytail.
The actress will be working with the same agency as her daughter, Ireland Baldwin, who signed a deal in March. Despite Basinger's divorce with Alec Baldwin in 2002, the 30 Rock star would agree she's a beauty. The actor described her as "one of the most beautiful women that [has] ever lived" in an interview in June. He added, "Even divorce doesn't muddy my view of that."
"We are proud to be working with a distinguished and talented actress such as Kim Basinger," said Ivan Bart, senior vp and managing director of IMG Models. "Kim has a powerful appeal on screen that will lend itself as a strong asset for us to seek innovative partnerships across the modeling and entertainment platform for Kim."
With the announcement of WME and Silver Lake buying IMG Models' parent company, IMG, on Wednesday, it will be interesting to see where Basinger will appear next with films and commercial endorsements.
