One of the most recognizable faces from Victoria’s Secret Angels thanks to her piercing blue eyes, envious pout and blonde locks, Candice Swanepoel has the look of an actual angel but with a naughty twist. Some would say she has the exact look that Victoria’s Secret is standing for.
Victoria’s Secret also has a thing for Candice judging by the fact that she was the only Angel to get her own feature during the airing of the 2012 Fashion Show.
The brand ran a biography about her. This preferential treatment that the brand gives to Candice is probably because of her young age.
Although 30 is not old by most standards, for models like Adriana Lima, Miranda Kerr and Alessandra Ambrosio it getting close to retire.
Candice’s career is often compared to the one Gisele Bundchen or Adriana Lima had. She has the most potential from the Angel bunch and could soon take a leadership role in the lingerie line, estimating earnings of $3.3 million in 2013. In 2014 she was ranked No. 1 in Maxim’s “Hot 100 List” and has entered the top 10 of “Forbes’s World’s Top-Earning Models list”.
Eyes on the prize
As for her love life, Candice has a relationship with Brazilian model Hermann Nicoli which she met in Paris when she was 17. It seems that Candice is keeping her eyes on the prize.
Taking more responsibilities than any other working model, Candice has also modeled for brands like Nike, Diesel, Tommy Hilfiger, Chanel, Swarovski, Michael Kors, Christian Dior and many more.
And she’s not just every teenager girl’s dream, or men. Many lingerie retailers and fashion photographers, even famous brands can say that Candice it’s their favorite Angels.
With a very quick rise to the very top of Victoria’s Secret and millions of fans, the South African beauty has managed to get herself noticed fast and made herself a career out of her.
