Candice Swanepoel

Top Cats

She’s the VS Angel that has broken boundaries – appearing in high-end fashion editorials, cool fashion campaigns and as the face of major beauty brand Max Factor; she’s now also the face of the new Versace Bright Crystal Fragrance this spring. With a background in ballet, her enviable body is really in proportion (she has the smallest waist in the industry!), her posture is amazing and she really understands how to hold herself well and move in front of the camera… I love working with her – not only is she super fun (she has a dry sense of humour), she’s a real girls’ girl, so I always feel like I’m chatting with a good friend. I chat with her about health, fitness and her beauty secrets

See what Candice looked like as a child...


‘I feel a special connection with Brazil - I love the culture, the beach and the way of life.’

Are you health-conscious when it comes to your diet?

I eat whatever I want, but to me it needs to be healthy – I always think about what sort of vitamins are in the food and what it’s giving my body. I am always active and running around, so I need a lot of good food to give me energy so I am able to work. When I’m traveling, I’m careful with how much I eat as I tend to lose a lot of weight and muscle quickly, which I don’t want! Too many red-eye flights and I just exhaust myself. So I make sure I eat a lot of protein, carbohydrates, good sugars and good fats, like avocado.
