The beautiful and energetic Lily Chee is the latest addition to our “Ones to Watch” series, in partnership with Lee Clower Photography and Petite Parade.
Discovered by her Wilhelmina agent while grocery shopping at Fairway ( in the potato aisle) with her dad last year, Lily is a fast rising star. She has shot campaigns for Nike, Target, Esprit, Kohl’s, Levi’s, Uniqlo, Saks and more. She recently walked in the Ralph Lauren children’s fashion show at the New York Public Library and also in girls’ fashion designer Alivia Simone’s show at Petite Parade.
“Modeling has made a huge impact on my life,” Lily says. “Learning about photography, makeup and styling has been really exciting!” But just a gorgeous face, Lily is not. She also plays on the highly competitive SABA Brooklyn Barca girls travel soccer team…And she loves to win. “I like to be the heart of the team – being with my friends and winning”
She also takes multiple dance classes a week, from ballet to hip hop.
The name Lily is short for Liling, a name given to her by her grandmother. It means a beautiful flower stands tall on the peak – how fitting.
