OK. I admit it. I have had a long time girl crush on Behati Prinsloo. Every shoot Kayt Jones has ever done with her has just killed me. She is so effortlessly genuine in her photos and has such a childlike innocent smile. Behati was born in South Africa and discovered by a photographer at age 15 in a (get this) supermarket. He asked her if she was a model, she responded, "No". Days later, Behati visited the agency, took polaroids, and was taken to London to meet with Storm Model Agency where she was signed and began her career as a model. For those of you that follow the careers of models... know that the rest is history! At the ripe age of 22, Behati has graced the covers of countless magazines and walked the runway for just about every top designer imaginable. Her best friend is fellow model, Coco Rocha, (so cute) and is frequently on Coco's blog, OhSoCoco. They are beyond adorable as best buddies, travel all over the world together, and take regular trips to Haiti to perform charity work. They started a pen pal organization together in hopes to continue the support for the disaster that is still occurring there. Sounds like an amazing friendship to me! Behati currently resides in New York City with her long time model boyfriend, Jamie Strachan. I've gathered some of my favorite snaps of her below. Hope you all enjoy!
"Meet Me At The Corner" shot by Kayt Jones (my icon) for i-D magazine, styled by Pippa Vosper.
Behati and boyfriend, Jamie Strachan modeled in this shoot together. Woah, woah, woah. You just can't fake a chemistry like this. The outcome is breathtakingly hot.
I love, I repeat... LOVE... the way Jamie is gazing adoringly at her in this shot.
This dress was so perfect for this shot. Stunning. Kayt Jones depth of field blows my mind.
I love how she is attacking him up against the door. Ha, amazing.
An amazing candid photograph of the two of them giggling.
