Candice Swanepoel’s Very Sexy Start to 2013

By  January 04, 2013

For the third year in a row, Candice Swanepoel is taking center stage on the cover of Victoria’s Secret Swim catalogue, cementing her already legendary role with the brand.

“It was such an honor to be picked for the cover,” she said. “It is such an iconic catalogue. Before I was a model, I used to see Gisele Bündchen, Tyra Banks and all of those iconic women on it. It is amazing that a little South African girl can get on the cover.”

With slicked back hair, Swanepoel was captured by photographer Russell James, emerging from the pool while showcasing one of Victoria’s Secrets newest offerings, a Very Sexy bandeau top. “I love it — it’s so sexy and gives me amazing cleavage,” she explained.

Models including Lindsay Ellingson, Barbara Palvin, Lais Ribeiro, Doutzen Kroes, Erin Heatherton and Karlie Kloss took to the beaches of Miami, St Barths, Tulum, and Turks & Caicos to shoot the annual campaign, which will undoubtedly bring a bit of sunshine to your mailbox during the cold winter weather!
