Passionate about Brazil , the angel of Victoria ‘s Secret chose in Salvador the first to support social causes in your life – and , Vogue , revealed why the gesture is much more important for her than for women of Bahia poor community

Candice Swanepoel speaks Portuguese , has a house in Brazil , like your acarajé with little pepper and plans to meet a yard of Candomblé sometime. There was , however , none of these reasons that led to South Africa to Bahia in the middle of last year. In August , she chose Trancoso ( place your favorite ” in the world ” ) as the location for the cover of this editorial in the January issue of Vogue . The next month , arrived in Salvador on a journey lightning which went unnoticed by the paparazzi . Wearing cotton shirt , plaid shirt tied at the waist , jeans and Converse sneakers , the angel of Victoria ‘s Secret and fourth sexiest model in the world ranking Models.com followed up the neighborhood Itapuã to meet women of a community needy responsible for plots that give grace to the British brand Bottletop accessories .’

Under the command of Cameron Saul and Oliver Wayman , designer makes an intensive social work through his foundation, promoting the inclusion of young people exposed to risks such as HIV virus pregnancy , drug abuse and adolescence through educational programs funded with sale of clothing accessories . In Brazil , based in Sao Paulo with Womanhood Project , which provides assistance to pregnant teenagers and Salvador , which enables the artisans that enchanted Candice – there, under the eye of coordinator Luciano dos Santos , they received lessons from a designer brought from the studios of prêt – à-porter Paris to create colorful bags , clutches and belts from recycled tin rings . Interested in Bahia as anywhere else – the top says that there is a unique corner of the world where he feels at home – she posed for the brand campaign without charge and was keen to go there know closely a piece of first social project supported in your life .

” After so much time working for a daily paycheck , the money shall not make you happier . Accomplish something is much more rewarding than taking a top job and increase my bank account . These ladies need us – but I need them too, ” Candice reflected during the visit . “It’s the first time I get involved with social work. Smaller I supported causes in New York , was in a charitable gala nights and such, but nothing as significant as this. For a long time I looked for a cause, but wanted it to be something I really wanted to do, not something that made me feel at work when I saw how passionate and young – . , therefore , could be doing other things now – were the people behind the project , and saw the places in which they act – there Salvador , but also a core in Mozambique , which brings me back to Africa – it seemed the right thing to do , “he added .

” In South Africa we do not learn much about South America learned English , History – about Brazil , I knew nothing ,” said the top , which influence the capixaba boyfriend met ( and quite ) the country for the last eight years. ” Vitoria, Belo Horizonte , São Paulo , Rio de Janeiro , Fortaleza , Conceição da Barra – . . Up to a reggae festival in Itaúnas I went ‘m gringa , but adopted the Brazil When I came to Bahia , the feelings I had were overwhelming . ‘s a place where I feel alive , I see good people around me and it makes me become a better person . ”

” For models , the life is in fast- forward mode – I can guarantee that I did things that many people 30 years and never made it all about yourself , . . You are your own business after a certain time in the industry , you tired of it . [ Pause ] I think that is why many models have children early , because then their story also involves another person , you know I also need to feel that I am doing things for someone other than me . ”

Owner of a house in the Holy Spirit and a respectable repertoire of words in the national vocabulary – she adores, for example, swearing in Portuguese – Candice is passionate about culture found here . Like eating acarajé (with a little pepper , please) , pot pie , prefer their meat at a barbecue with headlight and says it does a good vinaigrette . Hear a lot of Brazilian music , so on your iPod Jorge Ben Jor ago , Tim Maia , plus a bit of forró bands and reggae ( ” Freedom to Inside the Head ” , the Natiruts , is one of the favorite tracks , she sings head ) .

Also, is very interested in knowing a Candomble yard . I mention that there are people , even Brazilians, who feel frightened by this aspect of our culture . ” Nah ! I grew up in Africa , I’m not afraid of those things . ‘m Very interested in spirituality, in fact . Like to know what people believe , their different religions . Grew up Christian , but now I am in a spiritual way through which I connect with nature and the energy of the people – do not worry about the place to which I will when I die . ” And we thought we were restricted to the angels heaven.

In time, sold in spots like Harrods in London , scholarships of Bottletop landed on the shelves of multi Seas in February . And soon a designer weight of American fashion will support the project too. Keep your eye .
