Hailey Bieber used to raid her dad’s wardrobe when she was younger.

The model, who is the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin, has revealed in a new interview with British Vogue that she’s always been a big fan of wearing oversized clothes and would regularly scour her famous father’s closet for pieces when she was growing up.

“I always used to steal my dad’s clothes because I liked wearing everything oversized,” Hailey told the publication. “Like his tees and trucker jackets, even his 501s. I’ve been wearing (Levi’s) 501 cut-offs since I can remember… they make me feel like me.”

The 23-year-old is currently serving as one of the faces of Levi’s new Festival Style campaign and insisted she’s always loved the iconic American label.

“Levi’s is a brand that lets you be yourself. That’s important to me,” she explained, noting that she always seeks out jeans she knows she’ll be able to wear “again and again”.

And Hailey was full of praise for Jaden Smith, whom she stars alongside in the festival-themed Levi’s campaign.

“Jaden is amazing. He’s so creative and brings such an amazing spirit to everything he does, I think it’s the performer in him. I love that we got to work together on this,” the model shared, adding that the shoot was “just a fun day hanging out with friends”.

Hailey, who is married to popstar Justin Bieber, also explained that she’s been enjoying her time holed up at home during the Covid-19 lockdown.

“A high has definitely been all the baking I’ve been doing. I absolutely love it,” she smiled.

Hailey Bieber and Jaden Smith have been tapped to star in Levi’s spring campaign.

The stars are fronting the latest marketing imagery for the denim retailer, which was shot before the coronavirus lockdown and was originally set to be unveiled in time for music festival season in the U.S.

With a Coachella-like backdrop and pastel lighting, the images show model Hailey posing up a storm in denim shorts, sleeveless tops, and floral pattern outfits, while rapper Jaden wears tropical print T-shirts, casual shorts, and Cubano shirts. The relaxed looks were accessorised with gold jewellery and sneakers.

Uploading one snap from the campaign on her Instagram page, Hailey wrote: “My new @Leviscampaign with @c.syresmith, photographed before the world changed.”

While in an accompanying blog about the concept and photoshoot, Jen Sey, Levi’s chief marketing officer, explained that she hopes the snaps help to invoke positive feelings amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

“As I look at Jaden and Hailey – our friends and partners – I’m so encouraged. Hailey’s optimism and authenticity are inspiring. Jaden’s commitment to the environment, his passion to educate us on how we can all choose more wisely, more responsibly,” she wrote. “They challenge us (as individuals and as a brand) to be our best, they remind me of what it is to be filled with hope. And we all need to remember that right now. It’s never been more important to maintain our collective optimism than it is in the face of this challenge.”

Lily Aldridge ‘cried for days’ first time she was targeted by online trolls

Lily Aldridge has recalled how she “cried for five days” the first time she was targeted by online trolls.

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

Despite her success in the industry, Lily has had her experiences with social media critics, and in an interview with The Allure Podcast, remembered one particularly difficult time.

“I remember the first time I got paparazzied on a blog and I was like, ‘Ohh she’s major!’ and then I read the comments and I like cried for five days. They were so mean, and I was like, ‘This is not it. I don’t want my picture taken anymore,'” she shared. “I still get scared every post, I’m like, ‘I know somebody is going to say something mean.’ It hurts, it does. I don’t think I’ll ever stop hurting when you see someone saying something not nice about you. You try to grow a thicker skin and I definitely have over the years.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Lily also discussed the more positive elements of social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube and the way in which they have allowed her to communicate directly with her followers.

“When I was a young model, it was really cool to be really mysterious. My idol was Kate Moss, and no one knew what her favourite under-eye cream was. Social media has come around and people want to know more about you. I love doing tutorials and sharing my beauty routines and all that fun stuff,” the 34-year-old commented, noting that she tries to present herself in the most “authentic” way possible. “I am not perfect. I’ve got wrinkles and pores, cellulite and stretch marks – all of it. For my daughter and for future generations, I want beauty to be something that’s about your heart and about who you are and about, the things that matter.”

Lily Aldridge tired of critics urging her to ‘fix’ her smile

Lily Aldridge is tired of people telling her to get her teeth “fixed”.

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

But in spite of her success, Lily has now opened up about the “dark” side of the industry and shared how she is often targeted by critics over the tiny gap between her front teeth.

“(It’s) something people like to comment on a lot. A lot of people in the business and before used to pressure me a lot to change things. My teeth are not perfect and that’s my choice because I really love my teeth,” she insisted in a video for her YouTube channel. “I just thought I’d say it publicly – I chose to keep these gorgeous teeth, and I love them, and it’s O.K. that they’re not perfect to me. But so many people have a problem with it! They’re like, ‘Why don’t you fix your teeth?’ in comments. And I’m like, ‘I’m 34 years old. If I wanted to fix my teeth, I would fix my teeth.’ I really think the quirks of people are what make you unique and beautiful.”

Lily went on to insist that she doesn’t want “perfect” teeth as she feels a full set of Hollywood-style veneers would make her resemble Matt Dillon’s character in 1998 comedy film There’s Something About Mary.

Elsewhere in the clip, the brunette beauty shared that she has experienced all sorts of negativity on jobs over the course of her career, but tries her best not to dwell on the past.

“There’s hundreds of stories. Times when I’ve been told I’m too skinny. Time when I’ve been told I’m too fat. Times when I’ve been told I’m too pretty. Times when I’ve been told I’m not pretty enough,” the mother-of-two sighed. “I think if you love what you do, no matter what, you can get through all those hurdles. Don’t let anybody narrate your story.”

Lily Aldridge has a large collection of Ray-Ban sunglasses.

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.

When it comes to accessories, Lily has now named sunglasses as her favourite item to spend money on.

“I feel like Jack Nicholson and Johnny Depp always wore them, and they just have that cool, classic rock-and-roll vibe,” she said in a chat for New York magazine’s The Strategist. “Sunglasses are the thing I like to splurge on most, and I have so many, but I always go back to the Ray-Bans. I have the Clubmaster, the Aviator, the Wayfarer – I rotate between them.”

Lily went on to explain that she has been wearing her tortoiseshell Wayfarers the most lately.

Meanwhile, when it comes to fashion trends, the brunette beauty is all about embracing a boho-chic vibe and likes to wear Zara body suits with pieces from the Doen label.

“I just love Doen, and the Jane Top and Joan Dress are my absolute favourites for fall. The Jane Top is the perfect easy blouse for fall, with a pair of high-waisted trousers. I have one in a pumpkin spice colour, and I wear it with these really nice cream trousers and some brown slip-ons and my tortoiseshell Ray-Bans and my Bottega clutch,” the 34-year-old shared.

Elsewhere, Lily explained other products she can’t get enough of include the fragrances from her own line, RMS Beauty’s Un Cover-Up concealer, and Windsor Edwards’ Lip Balm.

Lily Aldridge has named Disneyland as one of her favourite smells.

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 unveiled her own fragrance line in September, and while she prefers floral notes when it comes to perfumes, she has now shared in an interview with The Cut that one of her top “surprise” smells stems from her visits to the Disneyland theme park in Anaheim, California.

“Like you just got surprised with a trip to Disneyland and you’re just so full of joy and wonder,” she told the publication. “It’s my favourite place. And it smells like churros everywhere because they pump the smell out.”

Lily went on to name flowers, candles, and rosewater spray among her picks for best smells, but happiness smells like her children, Dixie, seven, and Winston, eight months, whom she shares with her Kings of Leon rocker husband Caleb Followill.

“I can smell them, and it just brings me joy,” the 33-year-old smiled. “And during the process of creating my fragrance, when I met the people at the actual labs that create the scents, they were like, ‘You can bottle the smell of anything.’ I was like, ‘Can you bottle the smell of my children? So I can have it forever?!'”

Elsewhere in the chat, Lily noted that her go-to perfume at the moment is Haven from her own brand, with the scent featuring notes of mandarin, lychee, rose, peony, and freesia.

Justin Timberlake ‘mixed things up’ for third Levi’s collection

Justin Timberlake wanted to “mix things up” when working on his third collaboration with Levi’s.

The Man of the Woods hitmaker celebrated his latest partnership with the iconic denim brand as he unveiled his 12-piece Levi’s x Justin Timberlake fall/winter 2019 Fresh Leaves collection at a bash in the Hollywood Hills on Tuesday.

The line features hooded shirts, plaid trucker jackets, canvas cargo pants, a reversible vest, and an orange camouflage worker shirt, with items priced from $78 – $380 (£61- £297).

And Timberlake was keen to keep the traditional designs of the California-based brand present in his line.

“When you work with such an institution like Levi’s, you don’t want them to be anything but Levi’s,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “And so, it’s just a little bit of a swerve here and there on fit or cut or wash or texture and that’s it.

“For the first two seasons, we created a bit of a left-of-centre aesthetic and we just want to continue to play up on that… I like to mix things up, always.”

The singer and actor also wanted to focus on versatility, and several pieces in the Fresh Leaves range are reversible.

“I get to travel to a lot of different places and I think the biggest part of it, to be honest, is to create something that you feel could be worn in Paris, could be worn in New York, could be worn In Stockholm, could be worn in L.A. and could be worn in Memphis, Tennessee,” the 38-year-old shared.

Elsewhere in the interview, Timberlake revealed that his and wife Jessica Biel’s four-year-old son Silas will be in charge of the family’s Halloween costumes this year.

“He gets to choose, so everything we’ve ever worn is his choice… He was Lego Batman last year. So, listen, I wouldn’t be surprised if he chose that again!” he laughed.

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 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.”

Hailey Bieber has dropped a major hint indicating she may be done with runway modelling.

The model launched her career in 2014 when she made her catwalk debut walking for Topshop, and since then, she has appeared in shows for the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, Philipp Plein, Moschino, Dolce & Gabbana, Prabal Gurung, and Jeremy Scott.

But in a recent post on her Instagram Stories, Hailey shared a photo of her strutting down the catwalk during the Zadig & Voltaire fall/winter 2018 show and criticised her arm placement.

“What I do know, is that ur arm truly should never swing this high when ur walking on a runway (sic),” she captioned the image, circling her arm in blue. “Hence why it is not, and will never be my thing again lol (laugh out loud).”

Hailey did not share any further comments on her possible career move. The last major runway show she appeared in was Versace’s pre-fall 2019 show held in New York City last December.

However, shortly before the blonde star wed popstar Justin Bieber in a courthouse ceremony in September, she shared in an interview with WWD that she is planning to be more selective about her modelling gigs in the future.

“I’ve tried to be really choosy with fashion week going forward, just because I want to have the time to spend being relaxed and being with family – and my fiance,” the 22-year-old commented.

In spite of her latest social media posts, it appears Hailey is still passionate about campaign modelling, and has recently landed gigs for brands such as Miu Miu, Max Mara, Levi’s, and Carolina Herrera.
