Lily Aldridge Quotes:
“The first Victoria’s Secret model I ever met was Adriana Lima, and she was so nice to me. She was very generous and very nurturing. She made sure people talked to me!”
“It’s important to still look like yourself on your wedding day, so I didn’t do anything drastic.”
“I’m a woman, of course I still have curves on me, and that’s ok. I had a baby and I’ve worked hard. And I don’t think women should have to feel that kind of pressure. I’ve done it really healthfully, and I took my time.”
“I work every day. I was flying the other day. and I was like, where am I flying? I have no idea, I work so much.”
