The new it-girl

There's a new it-girl in town! It's the namibian model Behati Prinsloo. She is born May 16, 1989 and is mostly known for her work as spokesmodel for the Victoria's Secret sub-brand Pink. Behati has said that she was discovered at a supermarket in Cape Town (South Africa) by a photographer. After she had visited the agency and had taken some polaroids she signed with Storm Model Management and was taken to London by the agency founder Sarah Doukas. Even though Behati herself made this statement many people believe that she was initially spotted by Sarah Doukas at the supermarket.

She has appeared on the cover of Italy's Muse magazine, the British Telegraph Magazine, the Russian Vouge and the American Velvet magazine. Her ad campaigns include Adore, Chanel, H&M, Hugo Boss, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Nina Ricci and so on. She has walked in fashion shows for Prada, Paul Smith, Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs, Versace, Chanel, Missoni, DKNY and Proenza Schouler and of course Victoria's Secret. Behati is ranked 31st on the Top 50 Models Woman and 14th on "the Top Sexiest Models" list by

By her second season in the model circulation, she had walked on more than 70 runways a season! She is best friends with model Coco Rocha and is often featured on Rocha's famous blog. She has dated fellow model Jamie Strachen (and he is HOT!). She also plays the rich girl in the music video "Rich Girls" by The Virgins and she appeared in the first episode of MTV's reality show The City.
