Despite recently circulating rumors, Candice is set to remain a Victoria’s Secret Angel!
She may have recently come under fire for her noticeably thinner frame, but, contrary to reports, Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel is not losing her contract with the lux lingerie chain. President & Chief Marketing Officer for Victoria’s Secret Ed Razek responded to HollywoodLife.com about the recent rumors, saying: “This is absolutely not true. Candice is one of our most important models.”
While the recent crop of Victoria’s Secret models are certainly less curvy than their counterparts of yesteryear, Candice’s frame is no different than that of fellow Angels Chanel Iman and Lily Aldridge. If anything, the fashion community seems to be embracing Candice more, having walked in shows including Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbana, and Christian Dior during the Fall 2011 runway season.
The 22-year-old South African native has admitted her weight does tend to fluctuate with her busy schedule, noting last November during New York Fashion Week: “Actually, this year my problem has been more putting the weight on and getting muscle on because it’s been really busy. I’ve been traveling around like crazy. I get skinnier if I’m very busy.”
Given her wave of recent successes, it seems like Candice is likely to be signing new contracts long before she loses current ones.
