It takes more than an enviably sculpted body to be a Victoria's Secret Angel. Being charming, approachable, and able to successfully prepare a meal in your underwear helps, too. And, Lily Aldridge has cemented her place as worthy of the Angel title by performing all of these tasks on camera. In the brand's first ever shoppable video, shot by Guy Aroch, Lily hosts a dinner party for some French clients — and as you can imagine, the preparations don't go exactly as planned. The intrigue!
Lily's endearing clumsiness in the kitchen is at the heart of the narrative (we feel you, Lil). A few spills and tumbles result in more outfit changes than we're used to seeing on the runway, and the cunning hostess finally gives up and just finishes the meal in her VS basics, including pieces from the New. Simple. Sexy. collection, which you can shop straight from the video. While Aldridge might benefit from a bit more balance and maybe some plastic dishware, her guests seemed altogether pleased. Check out the video above to see what it's like to be an Angel in the kitchen.
