Claudia Schiffer better watch her back.

Lily Aldridge is the new face of XOXO, and her ads are enough to wipe the memories of the models that posed for the brand before her (Schiffer, Christy Turlington, Miranda Kerr, Erin Heatherton, and more!) completely out of your head.

It's sort of no wonder Aldridge has what it takes to be a supermodel--her fashion cred is unparalleled. Her father is a famous British artist, her mother, sister, Ruby, and half-sister, Saffron, are models, and her half-brother is the world-famous photographer Miles Aldridge. Oh yeah, and her husband is the frontman for Kings of Leon, Caleb Folliwill--maybe you've heard of him?

Still, the California-born model is pretty down to earth. Just read our interview with her, and you'll see for yourself.

What made you want to be the face of the XOXO brand?

It's such an iconic brand, and I'm honored to be a part of the list of amazing models who have represented the brand over the years!

What's your pre-shoot prep routine like?

I love working out, so I always try and fit a work out in the morning.

When you're not busy on shoots, how do you spend your off days?

Spending quality time with my daughter and husband!

What's the best location you've gone on a shoot?

I love shooting in Turks and Caicos! It is one of my favorite places in the world.

Do you trade modeling tips and tales with your sister Ruby?

Yes, she is my best friend. We talk about everything together.

What was your experience like growing up in a family heavily involved in fashion?

It was amazing and very inspiring! I had a lot of amazingly creative people around me as a child!

What is one beauty product you swear by?

RMS Beauty Living Luminizer.

What's the best model freebie you've been given?

An endless supply of Victoria's Secret lingerie.

What's the one job that would get you out of bed no matter what?
