Lily Donalson, the first British name to jump into supermodel stardom since Kate Moss, is a Londoner through and through.
Born and raised in Kentish Town, NW London, she grew up in a very artist household(her father is photographer Matthew Donaldson, her grandfather Pop artist Antony Donaldson, and her great-uncle is Fleetwood Mac legend Mick Fleetwood) and it all came into shape upon being discovered by a model agency scout whilst sheltering under an awning at Camden Market.
A decade and countless contracts later, here’s what keeps her camera ready.


I love Estee Lauder Pore Minimizer and Repair Perfectionist, they really work for me. Advanced Night Repair Serum is also really good—and I also love Kiehl’s and Avene from France as they don’t have too much scent.
And I use [Bioderma‘s] Crealine, too, but everybody uses that. I also just found the most amazing lip balm. It’s on a stick and it smells kind of like almonds. It’s the best thing ever. It looks like it’s medicated but it’s not! I can’t remember the brand name but it’s short and stubby and I need to buy some more.
When flying, I make sure to drink extra water and moisturise regularly. At the moment I love Biotherm’s Skin Vivo Uniformity Texture & Tone Reversive Moisturizer.


I’m not a big fan of the gym and I prefer to exercise outside whenever possible. I horse ride quite often and I also like doing Pilates and swimming.


I think it’s really important to get plenty of sleep and drink lots of water. I also always make sure I remove my make-up before bed.
