Beauties on the beach: Erin Heatherton on Ocean Drive, Behati Prinsloo celebrates bachelorette party


Victoria’s Secret Angel Erin Heatherton stuns on the cover of Ocean Drive’s annual Swim Issue. Inside the glossy, the 5’11” Illinois-born beauty (and ex of Leonardo DiCaprio) talks about being discovered at age 17 right here in South Florida: “[Coming to Miami] was my first time on a plane,” recounts Heatherton, who was walking around the University of Miami campus when an Abercrombie & Fitch scout jumped out of a cab and asked her if she was with an agency. “I was horrified — I was like, ‘I don’t model.’” For more of the interview, go to


Speaking of models: Adam Levine’s fiancée Behati Prinsloo celebrated the end of single life last week at Wall at the W South Beach. Prinsloo Instagrammed some photos that showed that these ladies aren’t exactly teetotalers. The 25-year-old, along with a few of her equally beautiful friends like Candice Swanepoel, did what they do best: struck poses, some more amusing than others.


Attendees of the Jay Z and Beyoncé concert at Sun Life Stadium Wednesday were privy to something special (and we’re not just talking about the sight of Queen B’s derriere in that unforgettably risque chaps-like outfit from Givenchy). The duo showed off a few snippets of what appears to be a home video of their April 2008 wedding. Beyoncé is dressed in a white gown, Z in a tux. They exchange rings and then walk down the aisle together, being showered by what appears to be rice. How very traditional.

The two were super secretive about their nuptials at the time, but People reported that the knot was tied in New York, followed by an orchid-filled party at the rapper’s apartment. Guests included Destiny’s Child band mates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. DJ Cassidy worked the music. We are assuming Solange behaved.
