As soon as Modelinia saw Candice Swanepoel’s wings, we audibly gasped. The harp inspired, other-wordly creation is nothing short of amazing - and without question, extremely heavy! While Candice estimates they weigh half of her body weight, she’s totally up for the winged challenge:

“In Heavenly Bodies I have huge wings so that’s my moment! It’s like driving a car because they’re so far away from my body. I have to turn them before I turn my body. It’s an honor to get them. I told my trainer, ‘You better prepare me for this! We’ve been doing some extra push ups!’”
