Newlywed Behati Prinsloo Channels ’70s Rock Legends for The Edit

It’s been a BIG week for Behati Prinsloo, who kicked things off with her wedding to Adam Levine in Mexico on Saturday.  Now, amidst all of her post-nuptial bliss, the Victoria’ Secret Angel is making her Net-a-Porter debut, earning the feature spot in this week’s The Edit.

Photographed by Chris Colls, high above the New York skyline, the Namibian model channels her favorite fashion era, the ’70s, with a mix of luxe pre-fall pieces and a set of Stevie Nicks-inspired (faux) fringe.  “I keep it simple: cut-off shorts, Dr. Martens, Rag & Bone jeans, lots of vintage rock tees from secondhand shops,” says the model of her own off-duty style.  My look is grungy, very rock’n’roll.  I love the ’70s; I love the vibe. The music I listen to most is Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, punk. That’s why The EDIT’s shoot was so cool.”

The Models Glam Up For Inaugural Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation Gala

When Leonardo DiCaprio is throwing a exclusive bash, you just know there are going to be a plethora of gorgeous models swarming the scene — a fact that held true last night at the actor’s inaugural Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation gala.  Held at the picturesque Domaine Bertaud Belieu winery in Saint Tropez, the star-studded fundraiser played host to nearly a dozen catwalkers, including Leo’s girlfriend Toni Garrn, Petra Nemcova, Natasha Poly, Daisy Lowe, and Cara Delevingne, who unsurprisingly attended with her new BFF Selena Gomez.

Needless to say, the women pulled out at all of the stops when it came to their red carpet looks, which for Cara meant slipping into not one, not two, but three separate looks throughout the night.  The British model made quite the impression arriving to swanky event  in a cropped fur jacket paired with white eyelet shorts and her go-to black peep-toe booties.  By the time she hit the red carpet though, the fashion chameleon had changed into a sleek white double-breasted suit, only to change back into the fur chubby later that evening for a photo with Selena and Jared Leto.  Meanwhile, Toni opted for a lace Elie Saab gown in a flattering kelly green— a look that surely caught the eye of her Oscar-nominated boyfriend— while Natasha stunned in a bright aqua gown by Roland Mouret.

All in all, it turned out to be great evening for DiCaprio, who raised more then $25 million for his environmental conservation foundation thanks to such auction items as a $6 million Damien Hirst sculpture, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle signed by DiCaprio, Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro, and two walk-on roles in one of DiCaprio’s next movies, which were sold off for a total of $2.4 million dollars.

Get the full look at what the models wore to last night’s star-studded gala in the slideshow below:

Cara Delevingne and Selena Gomez Keep the Party Going in St. Tropez

There ain’t no party like a Selena Gomez party, because as it turns out, a Selena Gomez party doesn’t stop!

After spending a long, sun-drenched day partying on board a luxury yacht off the coast of France, new BFFs Cara Delevingne and Selena Gomez kept right on with the birthday celebrations, stepping out to a local St. Topez hotspot on Tuesday night.  The model-pop star pair were joined by Eli Mizrahi and the singer’s hot new guy friend Tommy Chiabra, who was also spotted jet-skiing with the gal-pals earlier that day.

While it may have been Selena’s actual birthday, Cara still managed to steal some of the spotlight away from the birthday girl by way of her sleek, figure-hugging ensemble.  The supermodel appeared to be channeling Olivia Newton-John in her Grease heyday, stepping out in a pair of skin-tight black patent leggings, a tiny matching crop top and killer peep-toe booties.  Meanwhile, Selena looked yacht-party ready in a blue and gold printed mini-dress and strappy gold heels.  The “Come & Get It” singer later took to Instagram to post a photo of herself, Cara and two friends with the caption: ”Thank you SO much for my birthday wishes -this has been the BEST birthday yet! THANK YOU!!!!”

 

 

In another Instagram post from the group’s stylish getaway, Cara can also be seen playing the guitar and singing along to “Wake Me Up” by Avicii much to the delight of her fellow partygoers.

As for today, Cara and her bestie continued the festivities by stepping out in casual sun dresses for a yachting trip with friends before exploring the town.
