In less than one month, we’ll get the chance to see all of the Angles hit the runway for the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and we can hardly stand the wait! Just last week, we spent some time catching up with Erin Heatherton on her VS preparations, and this week we’re chatting with All-American beauty Lily Aldridge, who just four months after giving birth, is set to make her runway debut as a new Angel mama! In between balancing her intense pre-show workouts with the joys of motherhood, Lily gave us the scoop on the Angel-approved health and beauty tips that are getting her back in runway shape! See how this new supermodel mama is gearing up for the show in our exclusive interview below!
The VS Fashion Show is only a few weeks away, how are you preparing for the show?
I’m so excited for the show, Ive been working out a lot and trying to eat really clean to get ready.
How do you maintain a healthy diet in the weeks leading up to the show?
Its all about balance. I’m eating a lot of organic proteins and vegetables! Maintaining a healthy, balanced diet is my number one priority because I’m nursing my daughter.
Do you have a favorite go-to snack/meal?
I love Larabars, they are the easiest healthy snack to grab and go. Post show I’ll be going straight to Joe’s pizza!!
What sort of workouts are you into? Do you have a favorite?
I think its really important to mix cardio with toning so I love boxing and then add in Pilates or ballet to keep me long and lean and avoid bulking up.
What do you have on your workout playlist?
I love listening to rock & roll while working out! Queens of the Stone Age and Arcade Fire are a few of my go to bands for breaking a sweat.
How has workout routine changed (if it has at all) since giving birth?
Its pretty much the same, basically just working out a lot!! Pilates, yoga, boxing, ballet. I like to mix it up so that I don’t get bored.
As a new mom, are there any new challenges that you’ve faced while getting ready for this year’s show?
Getting enough sleep, but I love every second of being a mom!
Will Caleb be able to watch the show live, or will he be on babysitting duty that night?
He’s coming to the show!
What’s your favorite memory from past VS Fashion shows?
Getting my wings for the first time was by far my greatest VS memory.
How do you keep your skin looking flawless for the show? Any beauty secrets?
Water water water…and sleep!
