Lily was photographed by Claiborne Swanson Frank for the book American Beauty. It is a tribute to the women who symbolize our country today—from Jenna Lyons to Lisa Mayock, Solange Knowles to Lily Aldridge—each of whom possesses an original blend of grit, grace, glamour, and gravitas that make them fitting exemplars of kaleidoscopic American beauty.
