You may consider mega model Lily Aldridge’s hottest runway moment to be in 2015 when she walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show® sporting the $2,000,000 Fantasy BraTM. Or, perhaps it was any of the legendary Fashion WeekTM catwalks she has prowled down, including for Carolina Herrera® and Diane von Furstenberg®, during her iconic career. Yet, actually, the 34-year-old entrepreneur’s proudest career moment did not involve showing off the svelte figure she’s known for at all. 

It was quite the opposite: she confirmed it was when she showcased her growing baby bump in a skintight dress on the Brandon Maxwell® runway during New York Fashion WeekTM in 2018. “I had just announced my second pregnancy, and I walked his show in this beautiful red dress that showed off my baby bump,” she recalls. “I received such an overflow of love and support that day — it’s one of my favorite runway memories.” 

Some of her most meaningful memories with her family, however, are far more low-key than those glamorous moments. Aldridge prefers fresh mountain air to the hustle and bustle, which is why she escapes the stresses of everyday life in Nashville, Tennessee. There, she resides with her husband, Kings of LeonTM lead singer Caleb Followill, and their two children — Winston, born in late January 2019, and Dixie, 7. In fact, it was the time spent in the mountains that inspired the creation of her second fragrance, SummitTM. “For the last 10 years, I have planned annual trips to Blackberry Farm® in the Great Smoky Mountains — whether by myself, with my husband, or with the whole family,” she shares. “Every season in the Smoky Mountains is magical; Summit, for me, encapsulates all of those feelings.” 

Keep reading to get more insight into Aldridge’s life, including her passion for sustainability, her beauty routine (which features the ultimate pencil for lip contouring), how she carves out time for self-care with a packed schedule, and more.
