Lily Aldridge Gets Her Wings

Growing Up In the Industry
While immersed in the fashion industry as a kid, she never imagined that at 27 she’d be where she is today. “I was always on a set when I was little,” she recalls. “My sister Saffron was a Ralph Lauren model, and I’d walk in and see Bruce Weber taking her picture. He’d take mine, too. Back then I thought I was going to be a soccer player—and for a while, around second grade, I wanted to be an astrologer—but I remember thinking how gorgeous the Victoria’s Secret Angels were. It’s pretty amazing that now I am one!”
