She has opened two Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows in a row (2014 and 2015).[11] The video of Behati finding out she is opening her second Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in a row has over one million views on YouTube.[12]

Early life[edit]

Prinsloo was born and raised in Namibia (then a trust territory of South Africa called South-West Africa until 1990), where her father, Boet, is a church minister, and her mother, Magda, runs a bed and breakfast.[13][14] She grew up speaking Afrikaans and was educated in English.[15]

Her modeling career began when she was discovered while vacationing in Cape Town with her grandparents. "We went to the grocery store after church and this guy came up to me and asked if I was a model and wrote his number on a piece of paper...".[16]

Career[edit]

Prinsloo debuted as a Prada[17]/Miu Miu Exclusive.[18] Soon after, Juergen Teller photographed her for her debut ad campaign, Marc by Marc Jacobs,[18] and she soon was photographed by Mario Testino and Paolo Roversi for British Vogue,[19] and David Sims for W Magazine.[20]

Behati has walked in fashion shows for Alexander Wang,[21] Louis Vuitton,[22] Miu Miu,[23] Versace,[24] Calvin Klein,[25] Givenchy,[25] Chanel,[26] Alexander McQueen,[27] Jil Sander,[28] Marc Jacobs,[29] Proenza Schouler,[30] Christian Dior,[31] Ralph Lauren,[32] Anna Sui,[33] Michael Kors,[34] and Saint Laurent.[35]

Models.com ranks Behati on their lists of 'The Top Sexiest Models' as well as their list of 'The Money Girls'.[109]

The night before 4 December 2012 airing of the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, Prinsloo and fellow Victoria's Secret models Jacquelyn Jablonski and Jasmine Tookes guest starred on 3 December "Ha'awe Make Loa" episode of CBS' Hawaii Five-0 playing themselves.[110] In June 2014, Prinsloo made a cameo appearance in a preview of Missy Elliott protégée Sharaya J's "Shut It Down" via a T by Alexander Wang campaign.[111]

Philanthropy[edit]

Behati has embarked on a charitable trip to Haiti, following 2010's devastating earthquake that caused irreparable damage to the small nation. Partnering with LakayPam - an organization dedicated to helping children in developing nations meet their basic needs - she collected and delivered hundreds of letters of hope from all over the world and helped raise funds. The letters offered words of encouraging support and sentiments of solidarity.[112]

When she made the journey to Haiti, she was accompanied by a cameraman and his friend. The resulting short film, Letters To Haiti, debuted December 7, 2011 at Milk Gallery in New York[113] and is now available to watch and be inspired by. Behati's black and white prints of the Haitian children were also sold in a silent auction on the night, with all proceeds going to LakayPam.[112]

Personal life[edit]

In May 2012 Prinsloo began dating Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine. Prinsloo married Adam Levine in Mexico on 19 July 2014.[114][115] Prinsloo gave birth to the couple's first child, a daughter, in September 2016.[116]
