Model Spotlight: Lily Donaldson

Lily Donaldson was discovered in Camden, while doing what a girl loves best-shopping. At age 16, she had no desire to become a model until then, her heart was set on art school. But that has all changed now, Lily is signed with IMG and is in demand by the best designers out there and muse to Lanvin designer, Alber Elbaz.

This London, England native with piercing blue eyes has skyrocketed to super model status after being photographed by Mario Testino for Burberry's 2004 campaign. This followed by a nomination for the Best Model Award at the British Fashion Awards in 2005. Even though Lily did not take home the win, this got her recognition into the fashion world.

Lily now dominates the catwalk on multiple runways, from couture to ready-to-wear, thanks to Jil Sander and Rochas for her start in 2004. Some of her campaigns include Balenciaga, Burberry, Chanel, Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, H&M, Lanvin, Max Mara, Mulberry, Roberto Cavalli, Topshop, Valentino, Pringle of Scotland, Christian Dior Fragrance, Gap and Burberry Beauty. She even graced the cover of Vogue Italia twice in 2005 and countless other magazines.

This star continues to shine bright and Trois Femmes was lucky enough to meet Lily a couple of times during NYC Fashion Week. Some models do not want to be bothered before or after shows, but Lily was such a sweet heart each time. (Thanks to Modelinia for the info on Lily)
