KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa native Candice Swanepoel was discovered in a Durban flea market by a local modeling scout. Perhaps best known as a leading Victoria’s Secret Angel, Swanepoel has appeared in its annual televised fashion show for seven consecutive years, and famously opened the show in 2011. She has also fronted innumerable print and television campaigns for the intimate apparel behemoth, including a highly covetable spot during the 2015 Super Bowl championship game.
Swanepoel recently starred in the campaigns for Givenchy and the first-ever Givenchy Jeans line. She has also appeared in advertisements for Tom Ford, Versace, Miu Miu, Rag & Bone, Prabal Gurung, Oscar de la Renta, and Brian Atwood, as well as Nike, Diesel, Topshop, and Juicy Couture, among others.
Select pret-a-porter runway appearances, meanwhile, include Givenchy, Christian Dior, Chanel, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, Bottega Veneta, Stella McCartney, Elie Saab, Jason Wu, Diane Von Furstenberg, Michael Kors, and Marc Jacobs.
