Its #WCW !
Today we chose VS Model Lily Aldrige.
Lily Maud Aldridge (born November 15, 1985) is an American Model. She is a Victoria Secret "Angel" and a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model, appearing as a rookie alongside Chrissy Tiegen and Nina Agdal for the cover of the issue's 50th anniversary.
THERE must be something in the water at Victoria's Secret - another of the label's Angels hopes to launch her own business, this time Lily Aldridge. The model follows in the footsteps of former VS alumni Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks and Alessandra Ambrosio.
"I'd love to launch my own label," Aldridge told us. "A beauty line would be super fun, but I know that building my own company would be a lot of work. There's so much that I want to do, but I want to slowly start building my own thing."
Aldridge says that it is no coincidence that many of the underwear giant's catwalk stars go on to create their own empires. According to her, working for the brand is both empowering and inspiring.
"I'm so inspired by the different careers of so many of the Victoria's Secret girls," she said. "Being there does so much for you, and it does make you want to follow their lead. Gisele, for example, is such an incredible humanitarian and environmentalist, and Heidi Klum has created some amazing brands. It puts you in such an incredible position to further your career. Carolyn Murphy said to me once, 'This is a job, not a lifestyle. Stay smart, always turn up on time and be thankful.' I've tried to remember that."
The 28-year-old is married to Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill and gave birth to her first child, Dixie Pearl, in 2012. She is currently focused on her second collection for Velvet by Graham & Spencer; a capsule range of versatile daywear pieces, including plaid shirts, faded leopard-print jackets and loose-fitting, sheer knitwear - perfect for throwing over dresses and vests when spring finally sets in. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Aldridge having worked with the brand; she has appeared in its campaigns since 2004.
"Velvet is totally my vibe," she said. "It's effortless, timeless and cool. They make the kind of clothes that I want to wear. I've picked pieces that I love from my wardrobe that I want to remake. Since having a baby, I think my style has evolved, too - I used to play it safe and just wear something because I knew it looked good. After I had Dixie, I was so bored of wearing boring things. The possibilities are endless now!"
