Is it just Us, or does Ireland Baldwin look exactly like her mom, Kim Basinger? The 17-year-old beauty recently modeled for a swimsuit photo shoot and struck a remarkably similar pose to one of her mother from 1983.

Basinger's daughter with ex-husband Alec Baldwin recently signed with IMG and made her modeling debut in a sexy photo shoot for the New York Post. In one shot, Ireland, models a gold one-piece cut out swimsuit while squatting down.

The pose is nearly identical to a shot of her mom from the James Bond film, Never Say Never Again. At the time, Basinger, then 29, wore an animal-print one-piece while squatting down in the sand on a beach. In both images, Ireland and Basinger style wet hair while staring directly at the camera.

Basinger, now 59, signed with the Ford modeling agency at age 16 before becoming a Hollywood star. Ireland told reporters April 1 at the New York movie premiere of The Company You Keep that she has several stars she looks up to for her career.

"One off the top of my head Miranda Kerr," she said. "I look up to Kate Moss . . . and my mom of course."

To help stay in shape, the 6'2" model says she follows a strict workout schedule. "I work out twice a day," she said. "I do more of my yoga and my dance in the morning and I do my cardio at night."
