For example, clients and designers who would have never given you a second look, now sit up and take notice.
      Victoria's Secret is one of the most competitively difficult jobs to get. There are thousands of beautiful models out there, and they all want it.

    • Candice Swanepoel: (Being asked, how she stays in shape) Good genetics are a start, but I have to go to the gym, look after my skin, and drink lots of water. It's my job to take care of myself and my body. Happiness plays a big part in your appearance too.

    • Candice Swanepoel: (Asked for her favorite destination for a modelling job) I'd have to say the Seychelles, because I adore being in tropical places. However, Paris and Milan are also special to me. Every city has something special that attracts me.

    • Candice Swanepoel: I don't know if it is obvious, but I am extremely shy.

    • Candice Swanepoel: I grew in a farm in South Africa and I was scouted there and they sent me to Europe. It's kind of been blessed, since then it happened all so fast.
