The Victoria’s Secret model was thrilled to grace the ‘Swim’ catalogue yet again — and she told us all about it!
While Candice Swanepoel looks gorgeous on the cover of the Victoria’s Secret ‘Swim’ catalogue, she had no idea she was selected until she surfed the web like everyone else! “I just saw it on the internet like everyone else. You know, they’re always coming out with so many new collections, but the most important cover is the Swim cover,” she said at the Victoria’s Secret store in NYC, where she was on hand making a stop during the Very Sexy Tour.
The Angel is proud of her covers — and she definitely has a right to be! “I don’t get to see them very often to be honest, but when I do get them in the mail [and see myself] it’s like, ‘OMG!’ I have a nice collection at home of all my covers,” she said.
While Candice has graced the issue before, it still is such an iconic privilege. “I’ve had so many swim covers, it’s the best thing for me to see that. I feel like it’s such an iconic thing. I remember when I was a little girl, I used to see Gisele on the covers and think, ‘wow,’ so for me to be on them now it’s such a big deal,” she said about the honor — and she isn’t the only one who is happy about it!
“They are so proud, my mom is ridiculous when I go down there, she just wants to show me off,” she said.
Aw, we think it’s so sweet that Candice’s family and friends are so happy for the Angel — and we’re so happy for her, too!
