Supermodel Candice Swanepoel rules the runways

The flawless beauty, apparently, is also blessed with a great metabolism. In an interview with Fox & Friends, Candice Swanepoel revealed that she didn’t undergo a diet in the month leading up to the Victoria’s Secret fashion show.

Candice Swanepoel explained that unlike other models, she actually had to eat more to be able to work out better and get a lean frame a month before the show. She said she did not follow other models fitness routines, after she realized that everyone was different, and had different metabolic rates.

Her fitness routine for the show included boxing, Pilates on the machine, a lot of lunges and running which she said helps to tighten up everything.

Before she graced international runways, Candice Swanepoel was a simple South African girl. Born and raised in Mooi River South Africa, to an Afrikaner family of Dutch origin, she was spotted at age 15 by a model scout in a Durban flea market.

Candice Swanepoel's resume includes covers for Australian, Brazilian, Mexican, Greek, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese and Italian Vogue, Brazilian, British, German and South African ELLE, British, South African, Romanian, Mexican and Chinese GQ. In 2010, she became a Victoria's Secret Angel. Candice Swanepoel modeled for the Kardashians' 2010 swimwear line.

In 2013, Candice Swanepoel was named the cover model of the coveted Victoria's Secret Swim Catalogue. She was chosen to wear the "Fantasy Bra" in the 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. The 10 million dollar bra, named the "Royal Fantasy Bra," was created by Mouawad. The bra and its matching belt featured over 4,200 precious gems, including rubies, diamonds and yellow sapphires set in 18 carat gold with a 52-carat ruby at the center.
