Prinsloo, 24, was born in Grootfontein, South-West Africa, which is now Namibia. Her father is a minister and her mother runs a small inn.
Behati, who is fluent in Africaans as well as English, caught the eye of fashion industry icon Sarah Doukas, founder of Storm Model Management, in 2005. She signed Behati when she was 16.
The 5-foot, 10-inch tall model was a natural on the runway for such brands as Chanel, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Zac Posen, MaxMara, Lacoste and Miu Miu.
Her profile rose considerably when she was picked to walk in Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2007. She’s appeared in the televised event every year since. In 2009, she was drafted into the elite Victoria’s Secret Angels, which includes one of her BFF’s Candice Swanepoel.
Her on-again, off-again relationship with Levine ran from May of 2012 until March last year. But they couldn’t stay apart. They got back together last July and were engaged the same month.
In her latest editorial for Vogue Spain, she wears Marc Jacobs, Isabel Marant, Dries Van Noten, Christian Dior Alexander McQueen, Roberto Cavalli and Burberry.
The spring summer designs are photographed against a rocky seaside backdrop and Behati revels in the cool breezes, sand and surf in various stages of undress.
