Lily Aldridge has reflected on her family’s long history with iconic denim brand Levi’s.
The model previously starred in the label’s Walk the Line commercial alongside Jamie Dornan in 2006 and is now fronting the Made Crafted campaign for the fall/winter 2018 collection.
As she is “very much” a jeans and T-shirt girl, Lily was more than up for the gig, and has now shared that she has a number of personal links to the Levi’s brand.
During a tour through the Levi’s archives with the collection’s design director, Nicolle Arbour, Lily came across a retro contribution, courtesy of her late father, artist Alan Aldridge.
“You guys found a piece of my dad’s art from the ’70s. He did a Levi’s ad and I had no idea. I was grateful to you guys to have this special moment. It was something I’ll never forget,” she smiled in a promotional video for the brand.
Lily added that Levi’s also aided an unexpected meeting between her and her now-husband, Kings of Leon singer Caleb Followill.
“(Walk the Line) was the first kind of thing I experienced where people would recognise me like, ‘You’re the girl from the Levi’s commercial,'” the 32-year-old recalled. “And my husband actually recognised me at Coachella. He’s like, ‘That’s the girl from the Levi’s commercial.’ He found me.”
Last month (Aug18), Lily and Caleb – who married in 2011 – revealed that they were expecting their second child together, a sibling for their six-year-old daughter Dixie.
The Victoria’s Secret Angel shared the happy news via Instagram, showing off her blossoming bump in a photo of herself wearing a bikini on the beach.
“SURPRISE,” she captioned the shot, while the mother-to-be received many messages of congratulations, with Alessandra Ambrosio, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Adriana Lima, Irina Shayk, Sara Sampaio, and Winnie Harlow among the well-wishers.
