Candice Swanepoel models for lingerie giant´s new summer collection

The Victoria´s Secret Angel who is one of the world´s highest paid models, reported earnings 1,9 million pounds for last year alone, looks stunning in her shots for Victoria´s Secret Swimwear Spring/Summer 2012 collection.

With her long blond hair, light blue eyes and the perfect silhouette, Candice is the perfect foil for the lingerie giant´s skimpy and sexy looks. And those “come hither bedroom eyes” don´t hurt either. She joined fellow model Miranda Kerr and stripped down to showcase this year´s bikini designs of the label.

The sizzling beauty hails from South Africa. She was raised on a dairy and beef farm in a small town called Mooi River, Kwazulu Natal, in South Africa. She revealed in an interview for GQ magazine that she was bullied as a schoolgirl. She said she was very skinny, wore braces and was awkward looking and never thought she would be a model. At 15 a model scout saw her at the Durban flea market and the rest is history as they say.

Since then she has walked for big names such as, Dolce & Gabbana, Tommy Hilfiger, Fendi, Chanel and Givenchy, just to name a few and top name designers can´t seem to get enough of her.

Victoria´s Secret Spring/Summer collection 2012 takes its inspiration from Brazil. The latest line features vibrant eye-catching colours, animal prints and lace. And gorgeous Candace brings out the best of the line. With her flawless body and stunning looks showcasing this year´s collection, Victoria´s Secret has got a winning line on their hands.

Coming back to her life on the farm she had this to say about her life back then. “It was such a pure, beautiful way to grow up. I used to wear overalls. And big boots and poke cow poo and helped the cows give birth. It was a really amazing playground.”

Looks like the model is all grown-up now as these days she plays in some of the world´s most beautiful destinations. And if those bullies could see her now……

This is one ugly duckling that turned into a swan.
