Swanepoel, who hails from South Africa, was No. 1 on Maxim’s Hot 100 for 2014, and the love affair apparently continues.
And why not? She’s one of the top-earning models in the world, impossibly leggy, has a lithe body, a killer smile, luscious blonde hair and piercing blue eyes. There is a soft, warm glow in her smile that is absolutely disarming.
Swanepoel is best known in the United States as a Victoria’s Secret Angel. She’s been part of the brand’s unique corps of models since 2010 and has appeared in countless photo spreads for its lingerie and swimsuits.
She was the 2013 cover model for the Victoria’s Secret swimsuit catalog and was picked the same year to wear the brand’s $10 million “Fantasy Bra” in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Overseas, the willowy 5-foot, 10-inch tall model is know for her editorial shoots in various fashion magazines, where some of her best work appears. She posed nude for photographer Russell James in 2010 in a stunning series of photos for James’ book, “V2.”
Her 2012 photo spread in Vogue Italia was bold and defiant.
Swanepoel literally vaulted into high fashion after she was discovered in a Durban flea market at age 15. A year later, she was commanding $10,000 a day for fashion shoots and appearing in such magazines as Vogue, ELLE, GQ, Harper’s Bazaar and Ocean Drive.
She showed off a harder edge in 2013 in a new feature aptly titled “Hard Candy” for Interview magazine’s German issue.
Last month, Swanepoel and fellow Victoria’s Secret models Lily Aldridge, Lais Ribeiro, Andreea Diaconu and Nadine Leopold starred in what may be the sexiest video of the year. They cavorted in the tiniest bikinis for the Victoria’s Secret Swim catalog.
Just a head’s up, Candice is into boxing as a work out regime and she’s had a steady boyfriend since she’s been 17. Still, it’s hard not to lover her.
