Lily Aldridge Quotes

1. I think of it as being super-girlie, not sexy. It's a huge part of American culture. The Angels, to me, are strong, iconic women who I have grown up watching.

2. I love Isabel Marant. I have maybe 100 of her flannels  and wear them every day, but she also does the most beautiful, feminine pieces.  I think Phillip Lim is the other 50 percent of my wardrobe; I have so many of  his bags, and the dresses are so good, feminine but also just really cool.

3. It's important to still look like yourself on your wedding day, so I didn't do anything drastic.

4. I want to create an organic beauty line, a fashion line, and I'd love to do kidswear. I've done Victoria's Secret (so) I have a name and I can launch myself in a bigger way. But, wherever my career takes me, I am blessed.

5. Since I had my daughter, I am much more experimental with fashion. If I like it, that's all that matters.

6. 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.

7. 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!

8. I'm eating a lot of organic proteins and vegetables! Maintaining a healthy, balanced diet is my No. 1 priority because I'm nursing my daughter.

9. Becoming an Angel was a huge achievement, the turning point of my career.

10. But I want to start a family one day, and be involved in more charities, helping children.

11. I love doing Pilates and dance. It's fun to mix things up and change your program every ten days.

12. I love shooting in Turks and Caicos! It is one of my favorite places in the world.

13. I always take working out seriously, but before a shoot I do extra sit ups and squats. I also eat more vegetables and drink a ton of water, because it really helps my skin glow.

14. I love every second of being a mom.

15. We try to balance our work lives so we can all be together. I used to travel with Caleb when (the band) were on buses, but now I'm glad they mainly fly everywhere!

16. I think I'm going to give my baby her first food on Thanksgiving, make her some organic sweet potato. I'm very excited! It's going to be a big day and my husband is in charge of the turkey - he's the chef of the family!

17. I love working out, so I always try and fit a work out in the morning.

18. We're so compatible; he's the coolest guy I've ever met, and my best friend.

19. 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.

20. It's blissful to be in love. In any relationship, you know it's right when you're happy and the other person makes you a better person. That's what Caleb does for me.

21. I think it's really important to mix cardio with toning, so I love boxing and then add in Pilates or ballet to keep me long and lean and avoid bulking up.

22. I grew up on fashion shoots. When I was a kid, I thought I was going to be a soccer player, then a photographer, as I looked up to Miles so much. But I was so in awe of Saffron; I watched her work all the time.
