Victoria’s Secret model and mom Lily Aldridge posed for an exclusive shoot in this week’s edition of Net-a-porter’s digital magazine, The Edit.
Lily talked about her time as an Victoria’s Secret Angel, saying of the brand, “I think of it as being super girlie, not sexy.” She goes on to say how blessed she feels with her life: being married to Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill, and having their one-year-old daughter, Dixie.
“We’re so compatible; he’s the coolest guy I’ve ever met, and my best friend.” She met Caleb at the Coachella music festival in 2007, but played it cool, knowing that she would meet him again. Four years later they were married.
Reading this, it reminded me of how many models and actresses have dated rock stars. Some ended up married with children, others parted ways along the tracks.
So below is a celebration of all the ladies who dated or married rock stars, and lived to tell the tale!
