Candice Swanepoel is a supermodel best known for her work with Victoria’s Secret. Apart from that, she has collaborated with many worldwide famous brands and designers. Here, we have listed all the information about her personal life, career, and income.
Candice Susan Swanepoel was born on 20 October 1988 in Mooi River, South Africa. Her parents, Willem and Eileen, are of Dutch descent. She has an older brother named Stephen.
She was a ballet dancer as a kid, which would, later on, help her with her catwalk skills.
She attended a boarding school at St. Anne’s Diocesan College in Hilton.
Her career started when she was only 15 years old. She was discovered by a model scout in a Durban flea market.
Over the years, Swanepoel has appeared in many editorials in Harper’s Bazaar, Allure, V, W, I-D, but also Brazilian, British, German, and South African Elle. Of course, we can’t forget to mention also American, Italian, British, Spanish, German, Greek, Russian, Australian, Brazilian, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, and Mexican Vogue.
She took part in advertising for Tom Ford, Givenchy, Oscar de la Renta, Rag & Bone, Miu Miu, Swarovski, Nike, Ralph Lauren, Versace, Colcci, True Religion and so many more.
As for runway walking, she worked with brands such as Chanel, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Christian Dior, Blumarine, Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Stella McCartney, Givenchy Elie Saab.
In 2010, Swanepoel became Victoria’s Secret model, and that same year officially opened its store in Edmonton. She also modeled the Kardashians’ 2010 swimwear line. Three years later, she was named the cover model of the Swim Catalogue by VS. She was the one to wear the “Royal Fantasy Bra”, which is worth $10 million, at the 2013 VS Fashion Show.
She is very active on social media. The model has 14 million followers on her Instagram profile and over 1 million followers on Twitter. The first article about her that pops out on Goggle when you type her name in the search box is the one describing one of her Instagram posts- a picture was taken in Jamaica. “The model was posing against a colorful column. She leaned back on it with her right shoulder facing the camera. Candice crossed her arms in front of her and looked over her right shoulder. She angled her chin down and smiled widely with her lips closed. At the same time, she popped out her left leg.” Not many articles differ from this one; it seems as if Candice’s beauty is the “talk of the town”.
Back in 2018, the model launched her swimwear collection named Tropic of C. That got her the Launch of the Year award at Annual Daily Front Row Award. Last year, she was honored to be awarded the Revolve’s Woman of the Year Award.
She is the global ambassador and patron of a charity devoted to reaching an “HIV-free generation” of children and mothers in her home country. Its name is mothers2mothers.
Ever since 2005, Swanepoel has been repeatedly linked to another big name in the modeling industry, a Brazilian Hermann Nicoli. When they first started dating, the girl was only 17 years old and modeling in Paris.
During the relationship, the two rarely spent time in the spotlight together; mostly, they traveled to each other’s homes. So, naturally, it was a shock when Nicoli appeared by his spouse’s side at a 2013 VS Fashion Show afterparty.
Ten years after they first met, the couple announced their engagement. Since then, they had two sons, Ariel and Anacan.
Many speculated about their split-up, though, as they were absent of each other’s social media profiles. Back in 2019, these rumors have been confirmed by Victoria’s Secret model herself. She only stated that she was, indeed, single but refused to offer any other information on the topic.
