Behati Prinsloo, supermodel and rock royalty as wife of Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, is the picture of sensuality wearing white lace, blue jeans and sheer tops braless for Marie Claire, Italia’s February issue.
Prinsloo, 30, originally from Namibia, is best known as a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
She joined the elite corps of Victoria’s Secret Angels in 2009, and has appeared in ten consecutive Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows, starting in 2007. She opened consecutive Victoria’s Secret Fashion shows in 2014 and 2015.
After marrying Levine in 2014, she took time off from modeling to have their first child, Dusty Rose, born in Sept. 2016. She announced in Sept. a year later that she was pregnant with her second child, and gave birth in Feb. 2018 to daughter Gio Grace.
Two weeks later, she posted a video on social media back in a bathing suit. She obviously wasted no time getting back to work.
But earlier this month, she talked candidly in an interview about her struggle with postpartum depression after her first child.
“After my first baby, I had a little postpartum depression and it was difficult to get back into normal life,” she told Net-a-Porter.
“But after the second one, everything felt so much easier; it was easier for me to work out, breastfeeding was easier,” she said.
Prinsloo got pregnant with Gio just seven months after Dusty was born. She says she was “literally living in yoga pants.”
But last November, less than nine months after Gio was born, Prinsloo was back in form, walking in the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in New York.
“I felt so empowered. I was like, ‘I can do this, I have two kids. It was a beautiful journey; I loved being pregnant and I enjoyed getting back to work.”
Prinsloo has been modeling ever since she was discovered at 16 in Cape Town, South Africa by Storm Model Management founder Sarah Doukas.
Prinsloo made her latest outing look effortless.
She posed for long-time collaborator David Roemer for the February 2019 issue of Marie Claire Italy.
She was a harbinger of carefree summer, posing braless in white lace, sheer tops and blue denim in designs by Isabel Marant, Roberto Cavalli and Emporio Armani.

Meanwhile, Maroon 5 is marking its Super Bowl half-time show with a $500,000 charity donation.
The hitmakers have joined forces with the NFL and Interscope records to make the hefty contribution to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America ahead of their performance at the flagship football game on Sunday, Feb. 2).
Frontman Adam Levine said in a statement:
“Playing the Super Bowl has been a dream of our band for a long time. We thank the NFL for the opportunity and also to them, along with Interscope Records, for making this donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters, which will have a major impact for children across the country.”
The donation is part of the NFL’s #InspireChange social justice campaign, a commitment to help create positive changes for young people in communities across the US.
Maroon 5’s contribution comes two weeks after fellow half-time performer Travis Scott revealed he had signed up for the show on the condition the NFL would join him in donating to Dream Corps, a non-profit organisation that champions social justice.
“I know being an artist that it’s in my power to inspire. So before confirming the Super Bowl half-time performance, I made sure to partner with the NFL on this important donation,” he said.
Rapper Big Boi will also join Maroon 5 and Travis for the half-time show, which has been shrouded in controversy due to the #TakeAKnee movement to protest racial inequality.
