Behati Prinsloo--the new Mrs. Adam Levine--spoke recently about her gig as a Victoria's Secret Angel, and despite the confidence the sexy supermodel exudes, she admits to feeling some jitters.

"I was so nervous in the beginning," Behati said. "You're in your underwear in front of all these staring people," Prinsloo said. "But it really does motivate you to be your best and look your best. All the girls are doing squats backstage!"

When you check out this Victoria's Secret photo of Behati that she posted just a couple of weeks ago, you can see the backstage squats worked nicely for the supermodel.

She captioned this shot, 'Paris at midnight @victoriassecret'

Born in Namibia--a country in southern Africa--the newlywed graces the cover of the virtual magazine The Edit, and within its content shares her personal style--high fashion grunge.

"My look is grungy, very rock 'n' roll," she said. "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."

When the 25-year-old (yes, Adam Levine married a younger woman--he is 35) isn't in front of the cameras or on a runway she likes to hang out in a selection of tried and true favorites, including "cut-off shorts, Dr. Martens, Rag & Bone jeans, lots of vintage rock tees from secondhand shops."

Behati Prinsloo was discovered by the daughter of Sarah Doukas--the same woman who discovered Kate Moss back in 1988. She discovered Behati in a grocery store in Cape Town. At that time Prinsloo had no idea who Kate Moss was.

"Growing up, I'd look at magazines and think, ‘These pretty girls are actually doctors, right?' I didn't even know about Kate Moss," she said.

These days Behati Prinsloo is excited about being Mrs. Adam Levine and she's looking forward, too, to the first Victoria's Secret international fashion show coming up in London.
