(Victoria’s) Angels Getting Married: Behati Prinsloo marries Maroon 5’s/The Voice’s Adam Levine

Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo engagedBehati Prinsloo married Maroon 5’s/The Voice’s Adam Levine on Saturday. From their seemingly whirlwind engagement in the summer of 2013, to a wedding that saw 200 strong flood the Floral Farms in Los Cabos, the super celeb couple hosted the obligatory Facebook posts, blogs about the nuptials and well wishers in their stepping-out as man and model.

Behati is Namibian born, becoming main lady of Victoria’s Secret sub-brandPrink in ’08, then a full flegged “Angel “ (yes complete with wings) the next year. She has walked the runway for Chanel, Zac Posen, Miu Miu and many others and has appeared on many fashion magazine covers…Vogue, L’Officiel and “V” to name but a few.

And because a wedding is all about the bride really-poor Levine just had to show up and look metro handsome-bloggers (such as yours truly is about to) made note of her Marchesa gown and Victoria’s Secret Angels Candice Swanepoel and (ex Angel) Erin Heatherton flittering around in their Rory Beca dresses.

Maroon 5 guitarist James Valentine played during the ceremony (as did the rest of the band later) as well as Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks and Sublime during the reception planned by star wedding planners Yifat Oren and Stefanie Cove.

Handsome, well known couples are certainly all the rage across the blog-o’-sphere. But whether or not the meeting of two people supporting super busy high profile careers a good marriage makes, time will tell in the case of Prinsloo and Levine. Still the affair seems to have made all the necessary news sources, plumped-up a goodly amount of fashion news and fed all our voyeurism for a least a day or so.

But Victoria’s Angels keep us all hopeful and lighter of step, knowing our wishes might come true, especially when they light down to earth to marry modern-day rock stars.

Curvy Is In…At Least With Christina

With a new album coming and all the attention she usually garners, 31-year old Christina Aguilera told Lucky Magazine that: “Actually, the challenge I’ve always had is being too thin, so I love that now I have a booty, and obviously I love showing my cleavage.” So with some women, curves are in, as the star of The Voice goes on to champion bigger girls: “Hey, if you can work it and you can own it, that confidence is going to shine through.”

This has been a debate in the fashion world for as long as we’ve had fashion and we run up against the quandary here when shooting models as well: just what size is the right size for a woman to be? Granted modeling latex dresses one tends to want ladies who are more on the lean and lanky, but really who is to say what works and what doesn’t until a girl (or guy for that matter) wiggles into a specific outfit and we all see how they come across on camera; it really is a completely subjective call. In Ms. A’s case, where a woman is powerfully controlling her image in a specific way, adding and losing weight over the years (the lady has had a baby, been working the pop stardom roller coaster for over a decade), being seen in tight outfits obviously accentuating a bigger booty or bulging breasts is exactly what she wants when she does it.

Being the ancient age I am-and hetero to boot-I have often opined in these blogs to liking curves more then I don’t. But I like to think I also might be evolved enough (I stress ‘might be’) to take each woman individually. How she carries herself, her sense of humor (has she one) and said woman’s capacity for kindness works more for me then how big or how small the lady might be. I applaud Christina Aguilera’s sense of confidence no matter what size she happens to be and find myself as much lusting over her now as I did before.
