Candice’s cover for Vogue Brasil is finally out. The November issue is part of their annual issue dedicated to Rio.
The official website of Vogue Brasil wrote the following.
Candice Swanepoel is the cover-girl of Vogue Brazil’s November special Rio.
The South African top, who has starred in three covers of Vogue Brasil, returns to be our cover-girl in November, photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott at the Hotel Fasano Rio de Janeiro.
This was her first job after giving birth to her son Anacã, who was born in Brazil in a humanized birth – the experience she tells in the Vogue Reporter section.
On the cover, the model wears Dolce & Gabbana looks, with styling by Daniel Ueda, beauty signed by Henrique Martins, executive direction of David Jensen (WBorn Productions) and Léonard Cuinet-Petit, executive production of Daniel Cruz (WBorn Productions), and photography by Sinclair Mandy, Dale Cutts and Gabriel Stefanini.
“Since 1979, Vogue dedicates annual editions to Rio, a city that fashion loves (and vice versa). This time it would not be different, but by 2016 a lot has changed: after the Olympic Games, a historic and a new wave of violence came to dominate the news and hit the carioca. Our love, however, remains the same, “says our editor-in-chief Silvia Rogar. “This edition took shape thanks to the cariocas who did not let themselves be beaten in difficult times, starting with Paula Bezerra de Mello, who collaborated with Vogue since 2005, RP of Fasano do Rio and was a relentless figure, who connected us to Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, a spectacular pair of photographers who was going to spend the Carnival in Brazil and ended up with Paula’s suggestion to shoot Candice Swanepoel in the Fasano pool – the hotel celebrates ten years in Rio, helping to boost luxury tourism in the city.
From Mert & Marcus to Vogue Brazil is shocking as the current scenario demands – in the duo’s photos, women are never the fragile sex, but the owner of the game.”
