Lily Donaldson

The famous Victoria Secret Angel Lily Donaldson is a worldwide supermodel, but how did she start her career?

Our Model of the Week is the 31-year-old Lily, born and raised in London where she lived with her parents and younger sister Aurelia. At the age of 13, Lily was scouted by Selected Model Management in Camden during shopping. She went on to debut in the Fall/Winter 2004 season where she walked for designers, such as Louis Vuitton and Chanel.

From that moment, Lily was seen on covers, campaigns, runways and go on! She has notably landed big campaigns for fashion houses such as Fendi, Hugo Boss, Max Mara, Kenzo, H&M, Gucci, and Versace. In the May 2007 issue of American Vogue, she was featured on the covers with fellow models Doutzen Kroes, Coco Rocha, Hilary Rhoda and Caroline Trentini.
