In passing through Salvador, Candice attacks a acarajé and confesses that her body is “a miracle”
What is that Bahian have? Candice Swanepoel, direct Salvador, responds: acarajé complete with vatapd and shrimp (but no pepper). In town for a fashion-related project, the South African supermodel and Victoria’s Secret angel asked to eat the dish, which was accompanied by a coconut water (all before lunch, that is).
“I know many places around the world, but Bahia is my favorite,” she said, in good portuguese, who learned under the influence of Brazilian boyfriend, before praising acarajé of Bahia Cira in Itapuã. “I really like Bahian food, it’s a miracle that I have this body,” finished the top.

It’s an exciting morning here at Grazia HQ. Not only is it Friday already but we also want to break it to you that Victoria’s Secret beauty Candice Swanepoel has just been unveiled as the latest face of Max Factor. Way to go, Candice!
Although the 24-year-old South African supermodel might best be known for her stardom as a Victoria’s Secret Angel, this is Candice’s first foray into the beauty world, and we couldn’t think of a better face for one of our fave make-up brands. Pat McGrath, Global Creative Design Director for Max Factor agrees: “Candice’s skin is naturally flawless, and her incredible bone structure makes her the perfect canvas to create truly inspirational and breath-taking make-up looks.”
Candice’s first global campaign for the brand will be for the launch of the brand-spanking new Whipped Crème Foundation, out next month. Although we cannot wait to get our hands on this exciting new product (team Grazia beauty have always been huge fans of Max Factor’s amazing foundations) we’re secretly beyond excited to see more shots of the gorgeous Candice!
Esi Eggleston Bracey, Vice President for Max Factor says, “With Candice, we have the most beautiful canvas that will not only front our campaigns but will hopefully inspire our network of International Makeup Artists and women around the world to create their own glamour statements.” Get excited, girls!
Candice is on the cover of Vogue Mexico September 2013. This is her 4th Vogue Cover this year (including her supplement cover for Vogue Spain May). We’re absolutely in love with the cover and couldn’t be more proud of her. As soon as the editorial or photos from the photographer come out will be uploading it to our gallery.

No. 9: Candice swanepoel
Like many of the other Angels, Swanepoel’s contract with the lingerie giant is her biggest paycheck, but work from Versace, Juicy Couture and Max Factor helped bump Swanepoel up to number nine on the FORBES list this year.
There’s just something about summer that makes stars want to lighten up.
For some celebs such as Dianna Agron and ariel winter that means switching to a blond hue. But if you’ve already got golden strands like Candice Swanepoel there’s really only one option: going platinum.
“I wanted to do something different. . . Something spur of the moment,” the model told E! News’ Alicia Quarles at last night’s amfAR Inspiration Gala in New York City.
Indeed, she beached her hair only two hours before attending the event! But despite the impulsive decision it looks like she might be keeping the lighter locks for awhile since she agreed, “Blondes do have more fun!”

We spoke to our body issue cover girl Candice Swanepoel and her trainer Justin Gelband on how to be fit, not skinny.
“Not model thin. Model fit” reads the slogan on the website of celebrity trainer and “model whisperer” Justin Gelband. The trainer and self-professed “life coach” has worked with the best in the business, including many of the Victoria’s Secret Angels, and champions a program that focuses on a healthy approach to getting a model body.
“I recognised that the girls in the industry were really behind,” says Gelband. “They weren’t concentrating on their bodies; it was more about not eating, not exercising and doing everything they can to lose the weight as quick as they can.” He thought what was needed was a method that ensured “all the women are eating, doing exercise and cardio and working on their bodies and minds and incorporating all these great things into their daily regimens so they can be the best they can be with the bodies they’ve been given.”
Gelband began working with Swanepoel shortly after her Victoria’s Secret runway debut. After seeing her on the runway he was determined to work with her and immediately approached her agent. The rest, as they say, is history.
So how do we do it Justin – how do we get a body like Candice?
“To be the best you can be with the body you’ve been given and work on the curves you have, you need to stop looking at what everyone else is doing and stop worrying about the whole quick fix,” says Gelband. “Anyone can be model fit, anyone can be their own model in their own body,” he says.
“The best thing to do is to work on your nutrition, eat proper foods, get the proper nutrients and minerals and vitamins in your body and then at the same time, exercise properly. If you do that you’re not only going to feel good mentally but physically as well,” he says.
STICK TO IT
Candice is a dream candidate for Justin’s program with a work ethic and determination that helps her to continue training when travelling. “I’ve always been very disciplined with everything I do. I grew up doing ballet from a young age and that’s where it started,” says Swanepoel. “I’m prepared all year round because we shoot all year round,” she says. Gelband stresses the importance of a maintainable program. “We do no more than an hour and she works out three to four days a week,” he says.
VARIETY IS KEY
“Each day is different,” says Gelband. “We’ll do some pilates, we’ll do some yoga, we’ll do some balance and stability, some movement and motion and we’ll do some boxing so she can release some stress and get nice and tight. But we’re always changing her movements and her exercise,” he says.
Recently, Swanepoel has worked with her trainer to take boxing to another level. “I did kickboxing before, which was great for my core, so I’m now learning to fight like a professional fighter.” The model mixes boxing, skipping and ballet to target different muscle areas. “I’m still finding muscles I didn’t know I had!”
“When we want to work on her stomach and her core we do a lot of boxing. When we’re doing her butt we use ankle weights and focus on the inner thigh and her butt, the inside, outside and top. [It’s about] really rounding the butt off.” Gelband’s derrièr-perfecting move involves starting on all fours with a light weight strapped on the ankle. Start with a straight leg, making small lifts up and down. Complete 12 to 15 reps with each leg, starting at the side, then repeat with the leg straight behind, then slightly inward. Repeat the whole exercise with your leg bent, sole of the foot to the sky. This time, rest on your elbows to protect your back. Don’t be disheartened if you can’t complete all reps the first time; work towards this number in your routine.
“I don’t deny myself anything,” says Swanepoel. “Extremely oily and salty foods make me feel instantly ill, so everything I eat is good for me, organic and fresh. If there is one thing someone has to supervise me with, though, it’s peanut butter and chocolate ice-cream.” When it comes to taking a break from her hectic work schedule, Swanepoel reconnects to her South African upbringing by getting close to nature. “I like to take a trip somewhere beautiful near the ocean or any water. Nature is what restores my energy.”

Every body is perfect: some are just more perfect than others.
This month we celebrate those who make the most of their best assets, like cover girl Candice Swanepoel, who shows off her enviable posterior in Sweet as Candi, as well as those legs that go on and on, as displayed in the punky Wild Cat. Proving that a Gen X can still rock it, Amber Valletta bares a tight and toned midriff in Ab Fab. And for our money, the most important asset is undoubtedly the body confidence sported by glamazon Robyn Lawley in Poster Girl. Go girls!
Victoria’s Secret superstar and June cover girl Candice Swanepoel spoke to Vogue about her low-key beauty routine, Instagram addiction and upcoming book project.
After her discovery in a flea market at age 15, this South African beauty has had a meteoric rise to fame. Numerous coveted advertising campaigns, walking the runway for the best in the business and a lucrative Victoria’s Secret contract are all testaments to Swanepoel’s admirable work ethic.
The 25-year-old says modelling is a business like any other. “I set goals and try to do projects that I believe in,” says Swanepoel. “It’s important to put yourself in situations that force you to learn and grow and be inspired. That’s why I enjoy doing editorial so much, because each shoot is so different,” she says.
Swanepoel relished in the opportunity to work with Vogue Australia and famed photographer Hans Feurer. “He shoots very differently to anyone else I’ve worked with,” she says. “It’s always interesting to see how different people perceive beauty and how they capture it.”
She admits working on the freezing streets of Paris wasn’t always easy. “The funny thing about the styling for this particular shoot is that I wasn’t wearing pants in many of the shots, which is a little daunting on the streets of Paris! I had arrived at the motorhome straight off the plane from St Barts, so the cold was a complete shock to my system,” she says. “I’m so happy to be a part of this issue; the crew was fabulous.”
The South African beauty has a laid-back approach to style, preferring a classic model-off-duty look of white T-shirts and denim. Her go-to outfit? “My old faded black high-waisted jeans, a white T-shirt, booties and Céline bag. Extremely simple,” she says. And beauty? “I use coconut oil as lotion and rosewater spray to keep my skin hydrated,” she says. “On days off, I don’t use make-up.”
Swanepoel is an active participant in social media with over 900,000 followers on her Instagram @angelcandice and over 400,000 on Twitter. “I’m addicted to Instagram. There – I said it!
“I don’t think too much about what I post. That’s why I sometimes get in trouble! I see things that I think are beautiful and use it as a kind of public journal of my travels and experiences,” she says.
Australian fans of the Angel can rejoice, with her plan to visit Australia in the not-so-distant future, as part of her upcoming book project with Victoria’s Secret photographer Russell James. “Last year we decided ‘let’s do it’, and decided to combine our love of the most amazing natural locations and our love for making art, and do a book that we hope will be like a visual adventure.”
Locations are still to be confirmed but Swanepoel says her ideal will include Africa, Australia, Papua New Guinea, East Asia and South America. “A complete adventure both creatively and spiritually.”
