When she took the runway at during the fourth look of the Oscar de la Renta Resort 2012 show, Candice Swanepoel drew more than a few double glances. And when she strutted down in her second look - a pink and white striped cropped top with high waisted short shorts - it was clear that everyone was paying attention.
A Victoria’s Secret model on the runway!?
But before you all get too ahead of yourself, let’s step back in time, shall we? Back to the Spring 2006 season, when Candice walked down the Tommy Hilfiger runway during New York Fashion Week. Or how about the countless walks during the Fall 2011 season abroad for Dolce & Gabbana, Isabel Marant, Christian Dior, and more? In fact, high fashion runways are nothing new for Miss Swanepoel. Before she became an Angel, they were actually a regular occurrence in her modeling career.
And if you remember correctly, she’s not the only Angel who lends her strut to designer’s collections. Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Lindsay Ellingson have all appeared on the catwalk for varied designers, showcasing their easy transition between bombshells and model muses. We love that the models are playing mix and match with their career - proving they can do it all, and more.
