Lily Aldridge was thrilled to walk in Brandon Maxwell’s latest runway show while pregnant.
The Victoria’s Secret model announced last month (Aug18) that she and Kings of Leon frontman husband Caleb Followill are expecting a sibling for their six-year-old daughter Dixie.
While Lily has steered away from the catwalk in recent years, she took to the stage during Brandon’s spring/summer 2019 presentation held at the Classic Car Club on Saturday night (08Sep18) as part of New York Fashion Week, and has since thanked the designer for including her in the show.
“So proud to walk the @brandonmaxwell runway 5 months pregnant! I’ve walked few runways in my life and this is a moment that I’ll look back on forever with great emotion,” she captioned a snap of the moment on her Instagram page. “Thank you Brandon for letting my shine & being such a true gentleman, Love you FOREVER!!!”
Lily went on to credit Tom Pecheux for her make-up and James Pecis for her hair. The brunette beauty added that her fellow models, including Joan Smalls, Taylor Hill, Cindy Bruna as well as sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid, had made the occasion even more special.
“It was so much fun being backstage will all the girls, everyone was so uplifting and rubbing my belly celebrating this beautiful journey with me. Nothing but Empowerment at Brandon Maxwell,” the 32-year-old smiled.
Brandon described his range as a “love letter” to his home state of Texas, with the line including power suits made from bold red silks and satins as well as shorts, wide-legged trousers and carefully draped gowns made from luxury fabrics.
And it appeared that Gigi, 23, had a ball at the show too, as she uploaded a long message dedicated to the rising fashion star later in the evening.
“Thank you for being you, I am proud to call you my friend and to be a part of your incredibly inspiring journey. Cheers @brandonmaxwell, I am OBSESSED with this entire collection (and have had the show soundtrack stuck in my head all night !!)” she posted alongside a slideshow of fun pictures.
