Victoria’s Secret Angel: Behati Prinsloo

Behati Prinsloo was born on May 16, 1989. She is a Namibian model, also, she is known for her work as Spokes Model for the Victoria’s Secret sub-brands Pink since 2008, but in 2009, Behati became a Victoria’s Secret Angel.

Behati was born in Cape Town, South Africa but moved to Namibia at the age of two where she grew up. Her mother is South African, from Cape Town and owns a Bed and Breakfast, while her father is a Minister in Namibian.

Behati was discovered at a Supermarket in Cape Town, South Africa by a photographer who asked her if she was a model. A few days later Behati visited the agency and after taking some Polaroid’s she was taken to London by Sarah Doukas, the founder of the agency Storm Model Management, where she got signed and began her career as a model.

Behati first modeling job was a shoot of her feet. Behati is best friends with Canadian model Coco Rocha, whose blog she is often featured in. And Behati lives with and is in a long term relationship with fellow model turned artist Jamie Strachan. She’s one of the few smiling models.
