Hailey Baldwin stuns in patent leather dress as she leads the stars at the Whitney Gala in New York

Earlier in the day she was photographed by friend drinking wine topless while in the bath.

And it seems as though Hailey Baldwin‘s moment to unwind paid off – with the model appearing more than relaxed at the 2018 Whitney Gala sponsored by Audi in on Tuesday night.

The 21-year-old stunned in a black Alex Perry patent leather gown that flared out from the waist down.

Hailey‘s off the shoulder number drew attention to her tiny waist, while its off-the-shoulder fit allowed the beauty to flaunt her tanned decolletage. 

The dress fell to just above her ankles and she complemented the bold style with simple strappy heels. 

She ensured all eyes remained on her frock by keeping her makeup and hair in simple styles. 

The evening featured a beautifully crafted dinner curated in gold and mirrored accents, as well as a star-studded studio after-party that showcased a mix of old and new tunes by Sait Heron. 

Hailey added extensions to her blonde locks and had them tied back into a slicked back high pony-tail that was secured with a scrunchie.  

The beauty emphasised her model looks by contouring her sharp cheekbones and highlighting her eyes with a subtle smokey eyeshadow.    

Her glamorous outing came just hours after Hailey and pal Kendall Jenner shared cheeky topless snaps of one another on Instagram.   

Kendall, 22, sipped a glass of wine as she posed in just her Calvin Klein underwear – in a photo taken by Hailey, 21. 

Returning the favour, Kendall then snapped a picture of Hailey as she enjoyed her drink in a bubble bath. 

Girls star Jemina Kirke was also among the famous faces who attended the star-studded Audi sponsored event.

Jemima, 33, showcased her enviable physique in an understated black dress which hugged her every curve.  

The design‘s plunging neckline also allowed the beauty to flash a hint of cleavage, while a daring thigh-high split drew attention to her toned legs.   

she gave her frock some added pizzazz with the help of a gold pendant necklace and bracelet, while a dark eyeliner and her platinum blonde looks toughened up her style.

English reality TV show personality Nigel Barker and his wife Cristen were without doubt the most animated of all the guests.

The pair were far from camera shy as Nigel draped the model in his arms as she kicked her lean up into the air. 

Cristen injected a welcome pop of colour into proceedings with her style, wowing in a fuchsia pink dress with a stunning one-shoulder fit and pleated skirt.
