What It's Like to Spend 24 Hours with Lily Aldridge
One of fashion’s most-in-demand models—and the latest campaign star of Bulgari—Lily Aldridge never has a quiet day at the office. Off duty, however, the runway pro prefers a low-key routine: a family dinner before dark and catching up on her reading. Scroll down for the 411 on her (busy!) routine.
"If I don’t have to work, I exercise every morning. It really clears my mind. I do Ballet Beautiful, sometimes two times a day if I have a big job coming up. One session will be more mat-based, the other standing cardio."
When in Rome
"Working with photographer Mario Testino on Bulgari's 2017 global campaign in Italy was an incredible moment for me. I could see the Vatican from set! I got to play this powerful character during the shoot, and it was such an honor to represent that. My favorite pieces are from the Serpenti collection. It's distinctly Bulgari—very sexy!"
"Social media is something I approach organically. It’s all me! Sometimes I’ll post four things in a few hours, but then I could go dark for a week."
"When my daughter Dixie gets out of school, I take her to ballet, soccer, or karate. Or if it’s a free afternoon, we might bake together. I love our time together. There is nothing more important in my life than making her happy."
"When it’s time for supper, I’m very much an early bird, which I get teased for. My husband [Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill] grills an amazing steak, and I’ll make a side of peas and prosciutto."
"Getting through the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion show is all about the right fuel. Here's what I ate last November: Poached eggs, avocado, and green tea for breakfast, a quinoa salad for lunch, pasta for dinner, and a post-runway pizza party."
"I read all the time. Recently I’ve been recommending All the Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr."
"I travel to Turks and Caicos to relax. The hotels are beautiful, the food is great, and the water is clear."
