The Angel has found herself on the cover for the third year in a row! WATCH a sexy, behind-the-scenes video of the making of the catalogue and let us know what you think of the 2013 edition.
While the temperature may drop in January, Victoria’s Secret always knows how to heat things up in the new year with the release of their annual swim catalogue. Sure, we love checking out the sexy new swimwear, but we’re definitely most excited to see our favorite angels having fun in the sun. While the cover is definitely a coveted spot, it looks like the third time is a charm for South African model Candice Swanepoel who was featured on the front of the catalogue in both 2011 and 2012! In fact, she once told us she keeps a collection of her ‘Swim’ covers at home!
When Candice was chosen as the face of the 2012 catalogue, she told us she found out simply by surfing the web, just 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 told us last March at the Victoria’s Secret store in NYC, where she was on hand making a stop during the Very Sexy Tour.
For the 2013 catalogue, the models hit the beaches and posed poolside in both Miami and Turks and Caicos, where they were shot by famed photo Russell James. On the cover, Candice is wearing a ‘Very Sexy’ bandeau top and has her hair slicked back.
The Angel filled us in on why the ‘Swim’ cover is so special to her. “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 we couldn’t agree with her more!
Not only is Candice gorgeous, but she’s also totally down-to-earth, making her a fantastic choice for the coveted cover! WATCH a behind-the-scenes videos of the models dancing around in their sexy swimwear and let us know what you think of this year’s cover.
