Alec Baldwin's daughter signs up as Oscars fashion correspondent

Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger's model daughter has signed on to be a fashion correspondent for news show Entertainment Tonight at the Oscars.

Ireland Baldwin, 18, will join the programme's resident style expert Joe Zee on the red carpet on Sunday (02Mar14) for live coverage leading up to the Academy Awards.

She tells Us Weekly magazine, "I'm not used to being on camera so it's interesting, but it's so much fun working with Joe. It just feels like you're having a conversation."

Her big TV break comes after her father, Alec Baldwin, announced plans to stop talking about his private life in public.

The actor wrote in a piece for New York Magazine, "I'm aware that it's ironic that I'm making this case in the media, but this is the last time I'm going to talk about my personal life in an American publication ever again."
