Candice Swanepoel laughs, when she hears about lots of titles and honors she has gained during the decades of her career in fashion business. She has been considered as the most sexual and the most desirable woman in the world, according to the readers’ opinion of each male magazine in the USA. But for herself she remains a pretty blue-eyed farmer girl, who used to play with chameleons in the back part of her house.
Probably, she is the most famous South African model in the world. Besides, she is the first model fromher country, who was titled as Victoria’s Secret Angel. But how did that all start?
She was born in Mooi River, the small seaside town in South Africa. Her beauty was obvious since the first years of her life, and lots of family friends advised Candice to start the career of a model, but that seemed impossible for the citizen of such a small location.
Nevertheless, fate gave her a smile. She was scouted at the age of 15, when she was walking along the market in Durban, one of the biggest cities in her country. Her family supported her ambitions, and helped Candice to relocate to New York. There she immediately gained wide popularity. Soon the stunning beauty earned $5, 000 per day, and her ideal pictures decorated the pages of Greek “Vogue”. Besides, she appeared in Nike’s commercial.
In 2007 her career reached the new level – she was cast as the model for Victoria’s Secret fashion show. At that time nobody took the new blond girl too seriously. No wonder, because the catwalk was full of queens – Gisele Bündchen and Adriana Lima graced on the shows.
But VS managers noticed that lingerie, which was presented by Mrs. Swanepoel, was sold so fast. Soon she was honored to become the next Victoria’s Secret Angel. Her type of beauty (“too commercial”, as some critics defined) attracted lots of women to Victoria Secret’s boutiques. Now Candice is considered as one of the brightest representatives of the lingerie giant. It was she, who was honored to open the show in 2013. The model wore Royal Fantasy Bra, which cost astonishing $10 million. Thus, unofficially, she was appointed as the leading star of the brand.
During the years of her career Candice Swanepoel collaborated with “Juicy Couture”, “Puma”, “Versace”, “Avon” and other famous fashion and cosmetics companies.
