Lily Aldridge designs a charity T-shirt for Velvet
While accustomed to modelling more revealing pieces for Victoria’s Secret and Sports Illustrated, and of course taking on the odd ice bucket challenge, Lily Aldridge has played host at a gathering with Velvet by Graham & Spencer at the Revolve Beach House in Malibu – wearing a heart-motif T-shirt that she designed with the brand to benefit St. Judes Children’s Research Hospital.
Along with actresses Ashley Tisdale and Camilla Belle, Aldridge designed the $45 tops to sell in Velvet’s stores and e-commerce site as well as Revolveclothing.com... Each printed with the phrase “join the fight”. The model was inspired to get involved after a visit to St. Judes with her husband, Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill, six years ago.
“We were so moved by how amazing this place is, and the joy they bring to the kids,” said Aldridge. “It’s the most emotional experience I’ve ever been through, and now I’m at this point where I have this amazing platform…it is such an honour to use my voice to raise awareness.”
