XOXO’s newest endorser is another fashion star

IT WAS always Lily Aldridge’s dream to become a supermodel.

Following such stellar predecessors as Tyra Banks, Claudia Schiffer and Miranda Kerr, XOXO has chosen another star  to represent the XOXO brand’s Fall/Winter Collection.

Lily Aldridge is an American model  born in Los Angeles, California. She grew up in a large family full of creativity. Her father Alan Aldridge is an established British fashion photographer. Her sisters, also models, are Saffron Aldridge, who was a multiyear face of Ralph Lauren in the 1990s and Ruby, who was the face of Marc by Marc Jacobs.

As a girl, she always dreamed of becoming a model herself. That day came when she was discovered at her school carnival in the eighth grade.

Since then, she has been seen in spreads for top fashion magazines such as Italian Vogue, L’uomo Vogue, Teen Vogue, Elle Girl, Italian Elle, Glamour and Cosmopolitan. At the age of 18, she appeared on the cover of the August 2003 Spanish Vogue.

In 2009, she modeled in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for the first time. In 2010, she became a Victoria’s Secret Angel and was given her wings.

In January 2011, she appeared on the cover of the February issue of British GQ with Lindsay Ellingson, Erin Heatherton (Lily’s best friend and XOXO’s Spring/Summer 2013 image model), and Candice Swanepoel. In the same month, she also appeared in an editorial for V Magazine with fellow angels Heatherton and Swanepoel.

In March 2011, Lily appeared on the cover of “American Beauty Book” by Claiborne Swanson Frank.

In 2013, Lily released her own clothing line with Velvet Tees called Lily Aldridge for Velvet. She named each style after the people she loves most (i.e. daughter Dixie, sister Ruby and best friend and fellow supermodel Erin Heatherton).

In her spare time, Lily enjoys playing soccer, attending rock concerts, having  dinners with friends and family and going to museums.

Lily is a heady combination of the beautiful girl-next-door and rock-and-roll supermodel with a closet to die for.   Lily’s style magic exudes modern sophistication and sexy charm— all

the qualities that XOXO pieces stand for.

Aside from all these, the dusky beauty was personally chosen by XOXO’s Steve Nakash for her complexion— a stark contrast, and at the same time complementary  to the Fall/Winter season colors of deep and rich jewel and neutral tones mixed with matte black and bright hues.

Don’t miss XOXO’s exciting Fall/Winter Collection. New XOXO stores opening are at the 2/F, SM North Edsa Annex,  opening July 15; 2/F, Gateway main mall, opening July 16; and 5/F, East Wing, Shangri-La Plaza mall,  opening Aug. 1.
