Is it a contractual obligation for a Victoria’s Secret model to wear a choker?

Regardless, the Nineties throwback was on full display on Wednesday night (by women who were barely born in the Nineties) as Behati Prinsloo gathered her fellow VS Angels for the Behati x Juicy Couture launch party. It’s the first red carpet appearance by Prinsloo since news broke earlier this month that she and Adam Levine are expecting their first child.

The 26-year-old attempted to conceal her bump in a black slipdress and denim topper. She accessorized it with strappy sandals, a smattering of rings and the requisite choker. After her press appearance at the Dream Downtown, Prinsloo skipped down three blocks to Catch, where her VS besties — Taylor Hill, Romee Strijd, Lais Ribeiro, Martha Hunt and newly anointed Angel Josephine Skriver — were waiting.


Behati had memorialized the occasion on Instagram earlier in the day, posting a montage of early Aught appearances of the now infamous Juicy Couture velour tracksuit on a number of celebrities. One commenter perhaps put it best: “Middle school outfits.”
