The Aldridge sisters were rather predisposed for fabulousness. Children of an English artist-illustrator father and a gorgeous Playboy bunny mum (back in the ’70s, when the mag had cachet), the L.A.-born beauties are totally magnetic, with respect to one another and the world around them. “We share the same quirky, goofy sense of humor,” says Lily, 27, the elder sibling, by six years. “It’s very natural and silly when we’re together, no matter how long we’ve been apart.” The Victoria’s Secret model, who is also a new mom, splits her time between New York and Nashville, where she resides with her husband, Kings of Leon front man Caleb Followill, and their six-month-old daughter, Dixie. Ever boisterous, Ruby has served as the face of Marc by Marc Jacobs and can be seen stomping the runways of Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs, and Louis Vuitton, among others. “I’m definitely more the free spirit,” she says with a smile. “Lily was brutally shy when we were kids, and I would talk to anyone. I live in the East Village and she lives in the West Village. That sums it up completely.” But whenever they meet in the middle, it’s a beautiful reunion.
