Even in the dead of winter, we can always count on the Victoria’s Secret Angels to heat things up! The very sexy ladies star in the swim catalogue hitting mailboxes today, and for the second year running, we’ll have the privilege of finding Candice Swanepoel’s enviable curves on the glossy cover.
Following last year’s breakout performance in a hot gold string-kini, the South African stunner will return for the 2013 swim season, this time sporting an embellished Very Sexy bandeau top, one of the newest designs from the lingerie giant. But don’t expect the blonde bombshell to be jaded by her reclaimed cover spot. “It was such an honor to be picked for the cover,” said Candice to People. “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.”
Shot by famed longtime photographer Russell James, the debut 2013 Swim issue will also get an added dose of sexy thanks to the other VS Angels including Doutzen Kroes, Erin Heatherton and Alessandra Ambrosio, all of whom were on hand for the shoot taking place in both Miami and Turks and Caicos.
“Victoria’s Secret is like a big family,” explains Candice. “The swim photos are always really fun, and I love being on the beach. I can’t really complain [about my job]— I feel very lucky!”
Can’t wait for your issue to come? You don’t have to! This year, Victoria’s Secret has something extra special up its sleeves in the form of its new video series, Angels & Artists, which gathers a few heavenly beauties with a hot tune and a whole lot of bikinis for our viewing pleasure. Below, check out the first clip of the series which features Candice and Doutzen bopping to the beat of Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven” hit— you might remember a little performance he did at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show a couple of months back. Enjoy!
