Candice Swanepoel Will Leave You Breathless

Candice Swanepoel is a South African model. She is known for her work with Victoria’s Secret, Tommy Hilfiger, and Nike. Candice graced the pages of the 2008 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, turning heads everywhere.

Model scout Kevin Ellis spotted Candice shopping at a flea market in Durban South Africa at age 15. By age 16, Candice was earning 5,000 Euros or R40,000 for a day’s work. According to her modeling agency she is noted by advertisers for her fresh faced, doe-y-eyed innocent features, and an elegance which defies her age.

Her appearances includes covers for Vogue (Greece), ELLE (Germany), and Ocean Drive (U.S.) and advertisements for Nike, Diesel, Guess?, and Versus Eyewear. Candice has walked the runway for Tommy Hilfiger, Dolce and Gabbana, Shiatzy Chen, Sass and Bide, Betsey Johnson, Diane von F├╝rstenberg and numerous other designers.

She joined the ranks of supermodels Miranda Kerr and Alessandra Ambrosio when she graced the runway for Victoria’s Secret in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010. In 2010, Victoria’s Secret bestowed on her a title that transcends our conventional ideas of beauty: Candice Swanepoel became a Victoria’s Secret Angel.

In addition to her lingerie brand’s commercials, she was a featured model in the 2010 “SWIM” catalog, along with Lindsay Ellingson, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Erin Heatherton. Candice also modeled for the Kardashians’ 2010 swimwear line.
