For the third year in a row, Candice Swanepoel has graced us with her beauty on Victoria’s Secret’s swimsuit catalog. Victoria’s Secret’s Angels compete for the coveted spot every year and since 2011, it has been all Candice Swanepoel. In 2013, she adorns the cover in their Very Sexy Bandeau bikini.
The 24-year old South African was very proud, saying, “It’s really nice to see myself on the cover, and after all the iconic women, like Gisele and Tyra Banks, it’s an honor.” Swanepoel is featured in this year’s catalog, which, upon release, has Victoria’s Secret claiming that, “the sexiest swim season starts now.” The catalog shoot took Candice Swanepoel and four other Angels to Turks, Caicos, and Miami.
With her flowing blond hair and gorgeous blue eyes, Candice Swanepoel has made her way to #4 on the Top Sexiest Model list in 2013. She started off working as a fitting or looks model for Victoria Secret in 2007, becoming an Angel in 2010.
Aside from working for Victoria’s Secret, Swanepoel has also earned cover shots for Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and GQ, among others. One of her favorites, however, is to shoot for VS’s swimsuit catalog.
Candice Swanepoel has sold more lingerie and swimwear for Victoria’s Secret than many other Angels. Known for her laidback attitude, she has been labeled “sensitive” and “temperamental” by those working with and around her. Her innocent, sweet look takes breaths away as she stuns us with her grace and beauty.
Still relatively early in her career, Candice Swanepoel has many more years to show off her perfect curves and unforgettable smile. Whether she’s wearing swimwear for Victoria’s Secret or a sexy, flowing gown for Versace, Swanepoel will forever be remembered as the down-to-earth South African who dominated Victoria’s Secret’s swimsuit catalog cover in the early 2010s.
