Model Lily Aldridge is one of many “Angels” starring in The Victoria’s Secret Swim Special which will air on March 9 (9pm, CBS). The hour-long “behind the scenes” sexy photo shoot was filmed on the island of St. Barth’s in the French West Indies.
Aldridge comes from a family of professional models. Her sisters Saffron and Ruby are models, and her mother Laura Lyons was a Playboy Playmate in 1976. In 2014, Lyons told New York Magazine the story of when Lily found out her mom posed in Playboy. “When Lily was 10, she found a Playboy in her dad’s room, so I told her I was a Playmate. She asked if she could see it. Thirty minutes later I knocked on the door. She was watching TV. I said, “What do you think?’ She said, ‘Oh, it’s great.’” Lily’s father is graphic designer Alan Aldridge. According to Lyons, her husband “thought Hugh Hefner exploited women.”
