Looks like somebody's a natural!

Ireland Baldwin took to the catwalk for her first ever runway show at the Heart Truth Red Dress collection during NYFW yesterday, and she was a total pro. Although, we can't say we're surprised—the 18-year-old blonde beauty is over six feet tall!

Ireland opened the celeb-packed show wearing a stunning Donna Karan one-shouldered gown (in bright red, of course) and her hair slicked back. She clearly felt at home on the catwalk and looked just as comfortable as any seasoned runway model.

And since she's a known social media guru, Ireland took to Twitter to declare just how much fun she had. "Loved walking in @dkny for the @TheHeartTruth this evening! Honored to have been apart of an incredible event!" 

Celebs like Colbie Caillat, Giada De Laurentiis and Lindsey Vonn (on crutches) also walked in the Red Dress Collection show, but who was Ireland most excited to meet? We'll give you a two-word hint: Georgia peach.

Nene Leakes, Ireland Baldwin


Yup, it was Real Housewives star NeNe Leakes that Ireland snapped a pic with and posted to her Instagram account. The two posed backstage, and Ireland wrote, "My life is basically made ok. #gobulldogs."

So now we know what team Ireland is rooting for: Team NeNe and Georgia Bulldogs. 

Watch the video below to hear Ireland talk about battling pre-runway show nerves and how she's starstruck at Fashion Week.
