Fashion model Behati Prinsloo has plopped down on this particular couch in this particular atelier in downtown Los Angeles on this particular mid-December evening to talk about her new creative collaboration with L.A.-based denim label THVM. Thanks to a rapidly rising professional profile - not to mention her engagement to Maroon 5 frontman and "The Voice" coach Adam Levine - she's doing more than introducing around a dozen pieces of apparel to the world. She's been introducing herself too. Not that Behati (pronounced Bee-OTT-ee)

A week ago I had a chance to sit down with Namibian supermodel Behati Prinsloo on the overstuffed couch of a downtown L.A. denim atelier to talk about her first foray into fashion -- a capsule collection with THVM due out for spring/summer 2014. While a more in-depth story about that collection and the charmingly funny Prinsloo (who earlier this year got engaged to Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine) is slated to appear in Sunday's Image section, here are a few excerpts from our conversation that ranged from style inspiration to Instagram to naming a fruit bat. All The Rage: Although I've read all about it on the Internet I wouldn't be doing my journalistic duty if I didn't ask you straight out: You are engaged to Adam Levine, right?

Dry conditions are likely to persist this winter across the Southland and most of California, according to a seasonal forecast prepared for the state Department of Water Resources. But long-term forecasts always come with a big dose of uncertainty, and that is especially true this winter, when neither El Niño nor La Niña is expected to dominate weather patterns. “We have to take it with a grain of salt,” said Jeanine Jones, DWR's interstate resources manager. “But it's a reminder that we should think about being prepared for 2014 being dry.” The forecast, developed by a University of Colorado scientist, is based on statistical models that look at global weather patterns and compare them with the historical record to see what happened in California under those conditions.
