Victoria’s Secret 2016 Angel, Lily Aldridge, will be gracing the cover of the January 2017 issue of Tatler magazine with sparkling blue and purple eye shadow, a red lip, and perfectly contoured cheekbones. In the feature story, she shows off her amazing body by donning a sensual black velvet dress. The 31-year-old dark-haired beauty has been a Victoria’s Secret model since she first walked the catwalk in the 2010 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and she is currently in Paris to participate in the Victoria’s Secret 2016 Fashion Show as well. Born in Los Angeles, Lily Aldridge has been primed all her life to be an international supermodel, and she accomplished that goal by following a few simple beauty and style tips.

On-the-Go Beauty

Since she travels a lot, Lily likes to keep her on-the-go beauty and style effortless and comfortable without compromising on the chic factor. The Victoria’s Secret Angel says she usually just keeps her hair up in an easy, yet stylish ballet bun paired with a gorgeous pair of sunglasses to match the look. She also likes to spritz herself with some feminine fragrances to keep her feeling fresh when she is on a long and arduous flight. Since she enjoys traveling and smelling pretty, it makes sense that her new fragrance, which she concocted with Michael Kors, is called Wonderlust. It is a sexy new scent that is perfect for people who are constantly busy with active lifestyles.

Rigorous Exercise Regimen

Speaking of active lifestyles, looking as physically fit as a Victoria’s Secret Angel is not an easy accomplishment. It comes with long hours at the gym and a great deal of will power, stamina, and most of all, dedication. Aldridge and her fellow Angels do not take their workout regimes lightly. In fact, Aldridge partakes in a workout routine known as Ballet Beautiful. Yes, it is exactly what it sounds like. She trains as rigorously as a ballerina to keep her figure tight and toned under the tutelage of her trainer, Mary Helen Bowers. Surprisingly, the one exercise she hates doing is running, stating that she could never really get into it and she does not understand how runners keep their momentum.

Skin Care Routine

It turns out there is a hidden secret behind beautiful, radiant, glowing skin, and in Lily Aldridge’s case, it has to do with essential oils. Her favorite product is an organic beauty oil that she uses overnight by Rose Marie Swift, which helps to tighten your skin and strengthens the elasticity of your skin.

Considering how well she takes care of herself, it is no wonder that Aldridge was able to bring her body back to its former glory even after giving birth. The gorgeous 2016 Victoria’s Secret Angel has worked very hard to accomplish all that she has in her career, and it is highly commendable of her to stay as humble as she has. Lily Aldridge is a huge inspiration to younger aspiring models that look up to her.
