TOP MODEL SECRETS

Lily Aldridge

Supermodel Lily Aldridge tells H&M Life about her obsessions, beauty secrets and off-duty style favourites.

They are known for their beautiful faces, their fierce bodies and their ability to add that extra magic to campaigns, editorials and runway shows. But top models are also travel experts, foodies, beauty connoisseurs – plus all that in-between time on planes and at photo shoots probably keeps them updated on must-read books and the latest tunes. (And you know, super models are also human beings, even if you sometimes wouldn’t think so.) Bottom line: we want to eat what they eat; go where they go and dress how they dress. 

In a new H&M Life series, some of the world’s most iconic models spill their secrets. First out: Lily Aldridge, Victoria’s Secret Angel extraordinaire, Vogue cover girl and red carpet style icon.
