Lily Aldridge Walked NYFW Five Months Pregnant
Brandon Maxwell's New York Fashion Week runway show had a star-studded model lineup, but one high-watt runway vet had a special guest with her. Lily Aldridge, known best for her work with Victoria's Secret, took to the runway while five months pregnant, People reports, and judging from the response on social media, she worked the catwalk like never before.
Alridge walked the show, which was held at NYC's Classic Car Club, wearing a red halter dress with an open back. She and her husband, Kings of Leon's Caleb Followill, announced that they were expecting a second child back in August. They're already parents to a six-year-old daughter, Dixie Pearl.
Aldridge shared a few snapshots of herself on the runway in an Instagram gallery, which garnered likes from fellow models Martha Hunt and Brooklyn Decker as well as Brandon Maxwell himself. "I love you Lily!!!!!" he commented. "What a JOY it was to work with you.”
"So proud to walk the @brandonmaxwell runway 5 months pregnant! I’ve walked few runways in my life and this is a moment that I’ll look back on forever with great emotion," Aldridge captioned the photos. "Thank you Brandon for letting my shine & being such a true gentleman, Love you FOREVER!!!"
Cindy Bruna, Taylor Hill and Joan Smalls were at the show as well, but the photos of Bella Hadid touching Aldridge's stomach may be the sweetest thing posted to Instagram today. Bella's sister, Gigi, can be seen in another photo gushing over her friend backstage at the show. Seeing the supers support each other like this is enough to melt any jaded fashion fan's heart.
"It was so much fun being backstage will all the girls, everyone was so uplifting and rubbing my belly celebrating this beautiful journey with me," Aldridge added in her caption, driving home the uplifting mood. "Nothing but empowerment at Brandon Maxwell."
