Last week I had the opportunity to privately interview Adam Levine's new fiance and Victoria's Secret Angel, Behati Prinsloo at the Victoria's Secret fragrance launch event celebrating their latest, 'Victoria,' held at 620 Loft & Garden overlooking NYC's 5th Ave. While I was anxious to get my hands on the latest scent and meet the fresh faced Spokesmodel, I really couldn't wait to see her new rock (which was vintage and gorge) and get to know the future Mrs. Levine. While the Victoria's Secret brand had prepared a speech for her to give to all of us about the fragrance and partnership, she was completely overwhelmed with emotion and truly spoke from the heart. A real humbled girl, I liked her right away. Here's my exclusive interview:
What did you just do to your feet (she did something before she slipped her shoes on)?
Because it's so hot outside, I put powder in my shoes so my feet don't slide around. It's a trick from the trade.
Why did you get so emotional when you spoke about your collaboration with this fragrance?
This fragrance is me, but the emotions are more about Victoria's Secret coming to me and asking me to do the collaboration. They said I was the perfect person for it. The fragrance was fresh and young and still beautiful and feminine and they thought I was the perfect person for it. I just got so touched by it. It smells beautiful and I love roses. It's such an honor to have a fragrance created off of who I am.
This is a huge career highlight for you! What do you hope to do in the future?
I never thought about modeling. Then I got scouted and everything happened from there. I never in a million years would have thought I'd be sitting here as the face of Victoria's Secret's biggest fragrance. I wouldn't want to know what happens next. I like surprises and the feeling of being overwhelmed.
Congratulations on your recent engagement! What was the best advice you've ever received on love or marriage?
It's not advice per say, but my parents have been married for 35 years and I've watched them and always wanted what they've had.
What advice do you have for people who are looking for love?
Be yourself and be honest. Honesty and communication are the most important things.
Is there a product that you steal from Adam or he steals from you?
Not so much, but we both are obsessed with rosewater spray, which is funny!
