Candice Swanepoel Proves All That Glitters Not Gold (photos!)

South African Candice Swanepoel is in high demand these days, outside of her work with Victoria’s secret. She shows why she’s so desired in a new photo spread for Brazilian label Colcci.

The 23-year-old model has been tapped to rep the bran’s Luxury campaign featuring high-end jeans.

Candice just goes with the jeans in an erotic shoot against a backdrop of gold glitter.

Photographer Fabio Bartelt was behind the lens for the new collection. It arrives in stores this month.

Swanepoel literally vaulted into high fashion. She was discovered in a Durban flea market at age 15, and a year later was making $10,000-a-day for fashion shoots. She appeared in such magazines as Vogue, ELLE, GQ, Harper’s Bazaar and Ocean Drive.

Swanepoel has walked for Tommy Hilfiger, Dolce and Gabbana, Fendi, Chanel, Betsey Johnson, Diane von Fürstenberg, Givenchy, Jean Paul Gaultier and numerous other designers. But she is probably best known for her work as a Victoria’s Secret model.

Swanepoel made her debut at No. 10 on Forbes’ “The World’s Top-Earning Models” list for 2010-11, with estimated earnings of $3 million.

Check out her photos and video below and see why she’s such a hard working girl.
