Lily Aldridge used sheet masks on her belly during the last days of her second pregnancy.

The former Victoria’s Secret Angel, who shares daughter Dixie, seven, and 12-month-old son Winston with her Kings of Leon rocker husband Caleb Followill, told InStyle magazine that she diligently kept up her skincare routine even when she was days away from giving birth.

“Toward the end of my third trimester with my son, when I was counting the seconds until giving birth, I’d put one sheet mask on my face and another on my bump and watch TV,” Lily laughed. “My daughter thought it was so hilarious!

“I didn’t do it every day, but whenever I had 20 extra minutes to treat myself, I’d think, ‘Oh, a sheet mask on my belly? That sounds fun.'”

While the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit beauty opted for all-natural alternatives during her pregnancies, Lily is glad to be able to introduce her favourite skincare products back into her routine now that her 12-month-old son has stopped breastfeeding.

“I went with an all-natural regimen during both my pregnancies and while nursing my two children. I just weaned my baby son, Winston, and it’s opened up a whole new world of beauty products I can introduce back into my life,” the 34-year-old explained, noting that she preferred “natural options” from luxury brand Tata Harper, a “skincare line I started using while breastfeeding and have continued with because the formulas are fantastic,” Lily gushed.

Lily Aldridge was once cut from photoshoot for having ‘bad’ skin

Lily Aldridge has recalled how she was once let go during a photoshoot for having “bad” skin.

In a new video posted on her YouTube channel, the model candidly discussed the “other side” of the fashion industry and opened up about the time she had an upsetting experience as a teenager in a project for a European designer.

“We get to set, and the photographer…I don’t know what I did, but he just didn’t like me. He’s just complaining about me the whole time and saying my skin was bad. And, granted, I did have bad skin when I was a teenager – actually really bad. I had to go on different medications,” she remembered, adding that her complexion on that particular day “wasn’t that bad”.

Lily was then told by a stylist to call her agency, with an agent informing her that she had been “cancelled” from the photoshoot.

“I’m in the changing room in the studio, with all the people, and they just cancelled me via phone call,” the 34-year-old sighed. “The make-up artist was crying because he felt so bad for me. I was just this little kid, really!”

Yet, the brunette beauty decided to make the most of a bad day by heading to Disneyland, where she snacked on churros until “it was all better”.

Elsewhere in the 10-minute clip, Lily recalled the time she was dropped at the last minute from a major runway show in Milan because the casting directors decided she was “too short for the look”.

“I was in another country! All of my friends were there too. I sat in my hotel room and balled, balled, balled my eyes out,” the star, who measures 5ft 9in (1.75 metres), stated. “Called my husband (Caleb Followill) so embarrassed. I went downstairs and had drinks with my friends and used so many curse words. Actually, the thing I’m most ashamed of is all the curse words I was spewing that night!”

To conclude, Lily insisted that she tries to avoid dwelling on the past.

“Don’t let anybody narrate your story. You get to write your story. Keep going, keep hustling, keep dreaming big,” she smiled.

Lily Aldridge smelled the scent of a horse while creating her new perfume line.

The model launched her debut perfume, Haven, back in September, and recently released her second, muskier scent, Summit.

In a new interview with People Now!, the mother-of-two opened up about the development of her beauty brand and revealed that she was involved in the complex process from beginning to end.

“I did everything,” Lily explained of her hands-on approach to choosing the fragrances, adding that she was told to smell her shoulder in-between sniffing different scents to cleanse her palate.

And when asked about the strangest scent she had smelled during the creative process, she confessed it was something very unusual.

“When I went to the lab and I was creating, they were like, ‘You can bottle anything, the essence of anything,'” the 34-year-old explained. “So, I tried ‘horse’. The smell of a horse. It smelled just like a horse had been running through the fields.

“It didn’t smell great. But the second I smelt it, I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is a horse. I can see it.’ It was crazy.”

Describing her second perfume, Summit, as a “warm hug”, Lily noted that even her Kings of Leon rocker husband Caleb Followill is a fan of the spicy fragrance, as it features notes of leather, tobacco, and cardamom.

Summit, and Lily’s debut fragrance Haven, priced at $50 (£37) each, are available to buy from her website.

Lily Aldridge’s rock star husband Caleb Followill wears one of the fragrances she created.

The Victoria’s Secret Angel launched her debut perfume, Haven, in September, which featured notes of rose, peony, amber, and cedarwood, and recently released her second, muskier scent, Summit.

And in a new interview with InStyle magazine, the 34-year-old revealed that the fragrance is so spicy and moody that even her Kings of Leon frontman beau is a big fan.

“All my scents are very different, because what’s the point of making four scents that are all florals or have similar notes?” she explained. “Summit is a spicy, edgy, moody scent with leather and tobacco. It’s supposed to represent the feelings of being in the mountains and just being cosy during the wintertime. It’s also a more gender-neutral scent that I want to wear, but so does my husband.”

Lily confessed she used to mix up wearing feminine perfumes with more masculine colognes when she was younger, which eventually inspired her to create her own distinctive fragrances when she started her brand, Lily Aldridge Parfums.

Elsewhere in the interview, the model, who welcomed son Winston in January, opened up about her beauty routine now she’s a mother of two.

“I’m still nursing so I’m using really clean and natural products. I generally always lean towards these types of brands, but there are definitely some that aren’t that I have and love in my routine,” the brunette beauty shared.

Lily Aldridge has designed a capsule collection for Levi’s Made & Crafted.

The Victoria’s Secret model starred in the fall/winter 2018 campaign for the denim brand’s premium line and has expanded her collaboration with the team by designing a five-piece range which includes versions of the line’s bestsellers reimagined in unisex styles.

The Levi’s Made & Crafted x Lily Aldridge collection features an oversized white T-shirt, the Trucker Jacket, the 501 High-Rise Shorts, 501 Original Cropped Jeans, and a denim jumpsuit. Each piece is available in medium stonewash denim and intended for both men and women.

In addition, Lily’s name is included on the brand’s signature backpatch, along with the lyrics, “Don’t forget to love,” which were written by her husband Caleb Followill for his band Kings of Leon’s hit Immortals.

“I’m excited to announce my five-piece collection with Levi’s Made & Crafted,” the 33-year-old wrote on Instagram. “This collaboration was designed by me to be worn by EVERYONE! Caleb has already stolen a few pieces for himself… It’s classic Levi’s staples that I will one day give to my kids. The collection is inspired by Caleb’s Immortals lyrics ‘don’t forget to love’ … you can find these lyrics on the pieces (heart emoji).”

“It’s perfectly Lily. When she realised Caleb was borrowing her clothes, she decided to make a collection that anyone can wear,” added Nicolle Arbour, global design director, Levi’s Made & Crafted.

Aldridge also models her designs in the campaign, which was photographed by Matthew Welch and styled by his wife Karla Welch.

In honour of the collection, Levi’s executives are donating to the Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, a U.S. nonprofit organisation that advocates against gun violence. The limited-edition line is available exclusively on Levi.com.

Lily Aldridge wanted her debut perfume Haven to smell like the garden flowers at her home in Nashville.

The Victoria’s Secret Angel unveiled her eponymous fragrance company back in August, and her first-ever perfume was released earlier this month.

The mother-of-two worked for two years with perfumer Yves Caesar to create Haven and the process was personal, as she was trying to replicate the scent of her garden at the home she shares with husband Caleb Followill in Nashville, Tennessee.

“When I said I want a floral, they were like, ‘What kind of floral?’ You have to pick gardenia or peony or roses, and then what kind of rose, how sticky the rose, how dry the rose. So many little details, which was so fun and exciting,” Aldridge explained to Allure.

Next up for Lily Aldridge Parfums is Summit, which will drop in November. And the 33-year-old surprised herself by picking a spicy and musky scent she initially thought she never wear herself.

“Summit isn’t necessarily something I would gravitate to if I saw it in print, but I love it,” she explained of the perfume, which features notes of tobacco, leather, and spices. “It’s a side of me that I didn’t even know was there.”

She even wore Summit to the Met Gala in May so she could transform into a different character.

“My Met Ball look this year was very edgy, and I feel like it completed the story for me. It just felt moody and sexy for the night. And it’s fun to have something where you’re like, ‘Ooh, I want to wear this tonight because I want to play this character or I feel this way,'” she stated.

Lily Aldridge is preparing to unveil her namesake fragrance brand.

The California-born model is one of the most sought-after names in the fashion business and has landed coveted campaigns for the likes of Victoria’s Secret, Ralph Lauren, Levi’s, and Bulgari.

Lily announced last September that she was developing her own perfume company in partnership with Interstellar Brands, a subsidiary of Inter Parfums, Inc., and her management team, IMG Models, and on Thursday announced the brand will officially be launched on 1 September.

“Such an exciting day speaking with beauty editors about what I’ve been working on for the last 2 years @lilyaldridgeparfums launching Sept 1,” she wrote on her Instagram page alongside a selfie. “Thank you for all the love & support today!!! Can’t wait to share it with you all SOOOOOON!!! #DreamComeTrue.”

Lily, who welcomed her second child with her Kings of Leon frontman husband Caleb Followill in January, did not share any further details about the collection.

However, the 33-year-old previously stated that she would be taking a hands-on approach in developing the line and would be teaming with Interstellar bosses on the scents as well as the e-commerce site, which will be directed to her social media channels and “passionate” fan base.

“We believe this partnership is a first in our industry,” commented Jean Madar, chairman and chief executive officer of Inter Parfums, Inc., in a statement. “We are very pleased that Lily Aldridge is our first partner under this agreement. Not only a beautiful model, Lily is also an exemplary role model, as a wife, mother and business woman. She is ‘all in’ on this project and will be fully engaged in the creative and product development decisions of her brand. She will also help fast track the launch and continued sale of her fragrances through interaction with her growing social media following.”

Some of the biggest names in fashion had a model Mother’s Day on Sunday, with the likes of Heidi Klum, Behati Prinsloo and Lily Aldridge celebrating motherhood.

Numerous fashion stars took to Instagram to add their own sweet messages over the U.S. holiday.

Heidi, who has daughter Leni, 15, from her relationship with Flavio Briatore, and Henry, 14, Johan, 12, and nine-year-old Lou with ex-husband Seal, shared a throwback home video of her breastfeeding Leni with her 6.2 million followers on Instagram.

“…and this is how it all began for me as a Mother ….day 1 with little Leni I feel soooo blessed with 4 amazing children Leni,Henry,Johan and Lou . THANK YOU #mothersday,” she gushed,

Naomi Campbell was one of the thousands to comment, writing four hearts underneath the post.

Meanwhile Behati shared an old snap of when she was pregnant. The Namibian model welcomed daughters Dusty in 2016 and Gio last year with Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.

“My biggest accomplishment is becoming a mom to my two beautiful girls who chose me. I LOVE YOU. And all the moms in my life and all around the world, Mother’s Day is everyday. THANK YOU for your strength and unconditional love,” she wrote.

Lily, who has children Dixie, six, and Winston, three months, with Kings of Leon star Caleb Followill, told her fans she was “full of gratitude for the magical journey of Motherhood”, adding that she feels so blessed to have her family.

Tess Holliday also shared a sweet post. The plus-size star welcomed her first child, son Rylee, before she found fame, and then her and husband Nick added to their brood with son Bowie in 2016.

“When I first became a Mom, I was a single, living in Mississippi, working at Walmart portrait studio making $7 an hour, & no one knew who I was or cared. When I had my second child 10 years later, I was a celebrity, had to use an alias at the hospital bc of the press following me, I had @nickhollidayco by my side, & was no longer worried about money, a roof over our head or anything else I worried about 10 years prior,” she candidly told her followers.

Supermodel Lily Aldridge and Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill have welcomed their second child.

Taking to Instagram on Saturday (02Feb19), Lily, 33, announced that she had given birth to a son, a sibling for her six-year-old daughter Dixie, last Tuesday.

Alongside a black-and-white photo of her baby’s tiny feet, she wrote, “Winston Roy Followill. Blessed our lives January 29, 2019.”

Neither Lily nor her husband Caleb have shared any further details, although a number of the couple’s celebrity friends were quick to add congratulatory comments to the post.

“Congrats Lily!!” wrote Kate Bosworth, alongside a series of kiss face emojis, Chrissy Teigen commented, “TOESSSSSS (sic)!!!!!! Congratulations,” and Diane Kruger added: “Congratulations. A miracle every time.”

Meanwhile, Lily’s friend and Victoria’s Secret colleague Candice Swanepoel simply posted a string of blue heart emojis.

Back in August (18), Lily confirmed her pregnancy by sharing a photo on Instagram showing her posing on a beach in a bikini, with her burgeoning bump on full display. The brunette beauty did not reveal her baby’s gender or due date at the time.

However, she has remained very active throughout her pregnancy, and walked the runway at Brandon Maxwell’s show during New York Fashion Week in September.

In a post thanking the designer for casting her in the presentation, she wrote on Instagram, “So proud to walk the @brandonmaxwell runway 5 months pregnant! I’ve walked (a) few runways in my life and this is a moment that I’ll look back on forever with great emotion. Thank you, Brandon, for letting my shine & being such a true gentleman, Love you FOREVER!!!”

Caleb, 37, and Lily married in 2011.

Lily Aldridge is trying to prevent pregnancy stretch marks by using sheet masks on her baby bump. 

The supermodel and husband Caleb Followill, frontman of Kings of Leon, announced they were expecting their second child in August (18), having welcomed their daughter Dixie in June 2012.

Though Lily has accepted that stretchmarks are an inevitable part of pregnancy, she’s hoping that Hatch Mama’s hydrating Belly Mask will help reduce the appearance thanks to ingredients like aloe vera and propolis.

“It’s supposed to help with stretch marks, which is always great,” she explained in a video recorded for American Vogue. “But the fact is, I got stretch marks from my last pregnancy (and) I’ll probably (still) get them from this one. And that’s beautiful and part of the journey!”

The 33-year-old insisted that when it comes to beauty, mothers “need to cut as many corners” as possible thanks to the time-consuming demands of childcare.

However, skincare is a core part of her regime as her complexion has suffered due to the hormonal imbalance that occurs while carrying a child.

“When I first got pregnant, I had a crazy breakout, like a hormonal breakout,” the Victoria’s Secret star recalled. “I got little bumps all over my face, neck, and back. And then you can’t tell anyone you’re pregnant at the time, so people were like, ‘What’s wrong with your skin?'”

Now, Lily knows what products are most effective for her complexion, and has added ReFa’s Carat Face Roller and the Soothing Moisturizer from Miranda Kerr’s KORA Organics label to her skincare arsenal.
