Lily Aldridge Gets Her Wings

Giving Back and Keeping Fit
She loves that it allows her, on the one hand, to explore philanthropic endeavors (she supports children’s charities such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis), and on the other, indulge in a bit of glitz and glamour—not to mention a little camaraderie. “Victoria’s Secret really is so special, because you shoot with the same people every week, and the other girls become your best friends,” she says.
Aldridge also notes some personal-health benefits to being an Angel: “It helps me want to stay in shape year-round. I’m very conscious about being toned and healthy now. I don’t smoke cigarettes, and—let me be clear—I consider healthy eating all about good, nutritious foods, which for me includes pasta.”
