Before her days on the runway and shooting on set, she had reportedly planned to pursue ballet before a foot injury cut her dreams short.
She first appeared in magazines before making her catwalk debut in 2014 aged 18, a year later she was photographed to appear in both American Vogue and Teen Vogue.

Over the years she has made appearances in film and television, she was on Saturday Night Live way back in 2009 with her uncle Alec Baldwin. In 2011, she was cast as the love interest in Cody Simpson's 'On My Mind' music video. In 2015 Hailey showed off her hosting chops when she presented at 2015's MTV Europe Music Awards.
After making waves in the beauty world with her 'bronde' tresses and 'glazed doughnut nails', the Baldwin-turned-Bieber became the latest celebrity to bring out their own brand.
In 2022, she launched her very own skincare line 'Rhode', which quickly boasted fan-favourite products that helped Hailey's followers achieved her trademark 'glazed and glowy' look.
Of course, in between her various ventures into modelling, acting and the beauty world, Hailey famously married Justin Bieber.
The pair reportedly dated for a short period of time towards the end of 2015, before they got back together in June 2018 and became engaged a month later.
They married in November 2018 in a 'secret ceremony' but held a second much more extravagant wedding in September 2019.
