She’s one of the most-admired models in the world today, but Lily Aldridge wasn’t always the fashion idol that we see on the runway. In a new interview with Vogue magazine, the Victoria’s Secret stunner confesses that her style palette was developed over the course of decades.
Lily explains, “I grew up in the Valley in California. I was so into playing with clothes, dressing up, being girly, but around kindergarten, I became a tomboy. In this picture with the gorilla I was a super-tomboy, and really into sports. Mia Hamm probably most influenced my style when I was younger. I was a big soccer player, and I thought she was God—I loved her! In fact I wore soccer jerseys for the better part of my childhood. I was also really into the surfer vibe growing up in California too, so in middle school I got into wearing board shorts and that type of stuff.”
It's finally here! The 2014 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show took place in London, England this evening (December 2) and all your favorite Angels looked spectacular. Candice Swanepoel was glowing as she showed off her sexy charm in three sparkling ensembles. A favorite being a gold-winged lingerie set, which matched her perfect blonde locks.
