Most women need a certain level of confidence to step out in a bikini, but Candice Swanepoel must have bucket loads to go out in hers.
The 23-year-old model wore a very skimpy two-piece as she relaxed in the beach in Miami yesterday.
The slim star appeared to have the beach to herself as most beach beachgoers probably scarpered in the hope that they weren’t photographed next to her.
The black and white striped halterneck top just about covered Candice’s breasts and featured frill detailing.
She teamed it with a pair of black drawstring bottoms and a red sarong as she collected drinks from the local bar.
She didn’t bother wearing anything on her feet but completed her look with black sunglasses and gold hoop earrings.
The statuesque supermodel, who towers above most ladies at 5ft 10in, was joined by her partner of six years Hermann Nicoli, frequently taking dips together to cool off under the glare of the Florida sunshine ahead of Independence Day.
The devoted couple have been together following a chance meeting in Paris when the South African model was only 17.
The happy couple were also spotted on the beach the day before where Candice looked breathtaking in a simple black spaghetti string bikini, putting even the most confident of sun-worshippers in the shade.
Candice has been keeping fans titillated on Twitter, uploading a snapshot of herself – and a rather generous portion of flesh – while wearing her skimpy two-piece swimwear.
She completed the beach goddess look with a delicate touch of bling, keeping her gold earrings firmly in place during the ocean dip, while also decorated with several rings on her fingers.
The model also had a body chain draped over her, a fashion favourite with Miley Cyrus.
Despite her globetrotting career, Candice claims to be happiest against the tranquil beach setting.
She told DT Spain: ‘Although I have a high-profile life, where I am most happy is on a secluded beach with soft sand, listening to reggae.’
During a recent trip to Brazil for Sao Paulo Fashion Week, Candice seemed unsure of her future goals – but implied she would remain by Hermann’s side.
She said: ‘We have several plans for the future, we may live here in Brazil, I do not know.’
Hermann himself is also quite the catch, showing his impeccable six-pack in white trunks.
