Namibian model; Victoria’s Secret Angel; mom to two-year-old Dusty and 11-month old Gio; and Mrs. Adam (Maroon frontman) Levine, Behati Prinsloo covers the January 2019 issue of Porter Edit. Morgan Pilcher styles Behati in earth-color, utilitarian luxury outerwear and casual looks for ‘The Wild One’, lensed by Alexandra Nataf. Behati shares her thoughts and experiences in her own words.
Born and raised in Namibia, Behati Prinsloo left her country to pursue modeling at age 15. While she hasn’t looked back, Behati has always maintained her ties to her home continent and country, influenced now by her friend Doutzen Kroes to join the animal conservation movement. Doutzen is well-known for her work with elephant charities, and she put Prinsloo in touch with Save The Rhino Trust in Namibia.
If our generation doesn’t try to end poaching, the rhinos simply won’t be there one day. I am so close to this land, it’s where I’m from. I’m going to do a film with the rhino trackers to try and shed light on the situation. If I only save one rhino it will still be worth it.
AOC and GlamTribal Design are well-versed on big game conservation, and while Prinsloo’s comments are spot on, the reality of the situation around poaching is so much more complicated.
Just last night I learned that there’s a new move to declare the 10,000 years extinct woolly mammoth an endangered species, cutting off the supply of mammoth ivory. Initially, many conservationists supported the move to keep mammoth ivory available, thinking it would take the pressure off elephant poaching. Because it’s nearly impossible to tell the difference between mammoth ivory and elephant ivory, international crime syndicates are now shipping illegal elephant ivory with legal mammoth ivory. There is no end to human greed for ivory.
Victoria’s Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo, scheduled to return to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show after a three-year absence, returns as the face of LA jeweler Jacquie Aiche for the Fall 2018 campaign. Lensed by Naj Jamai, the Namibian-born Prinsloo says she has a real love affair with Jacquie Aiche’s merging of Native American turquoise relics, fossils and precious gemstones, with the Middle Eastern influences of hammered gold, amulets and goddess imagery.
Behati Prinsloo and Russell James work together frequently for Victoria's Secret. They also have a special relationship with Behati being the brand ambassador and muse for Russell's 'The Seminole Spirit' fine art collection. In Spring 2015, we tracked James' 'The Seminole Spirit' show first in Feb. 2015 NYC at Stephan Weiss Gallery and then in CAMERA WORK Gallery in Berlin.
