Some people are just born under a good sign. Take model Lily Aldridge: child of feted British artist Alan Aldridge and erstwhile Playboy Playmate Laura Lyons, the raven-haired beauty was never likely to pursue a career in accountancy.
Having appeared in editorials for Glamour and Cosmopolitan, she made the leap into the big time with her first shoot for Victoria’s Secret in 2009.
It proved to be a resounding success – hardly surprising given her elegant features – and last year she graduated to Victoria’s Secret Angel status. Alongside the likes of Candice Swanepoel and Erin Heatherton, she is at the forefront of the American lingerie brand’s latest assault on men’s senses, and we most heartily approve.
One last thing, you know we mentioned she was born with something of a silver spoon in her mouth. Well, her starry existence has gone as far as bagging the rock star du jour, Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill, as her other half.
