Candice Swanepoel now finds it “like a fairy tale or a dream I had a long time ago.” Her current life as a supermodel and businesswoman has little to do with the peace that growing up on a farm in Zulu-land instilled in her.
Life seemed so simple and pure! I know I am very lucky to have those memories, ”she tells Harper’s Bazaar with some nostalgia. It was there, in a flea market, where they discovered her at 15 years old. She was still not very clear about what she wanted in life until, after her first photo session, something clicked her. «I had done ballet since I was little and moving in front of the camera came naturally to me. When I finished, I said to my mother: ‘Mom, I want to dedicate myself to this.’ Since then, countless shows, covers and advertisements have led her to rank among the models best paid of the world. Fifteen years of career that he sums up in one word, “resilience”, and that have been marked, especially, by his fjchage by Victoria’s Secret in 2007. “To be honest, at that time I didn’t know the impact that the brand was going to have. in my life. But from the first moment they made me feel like a family with the other models and the team, and that was very comforting after two years traveling alone, so young ”, she confesses.
A few days before this talk, Swanepoel gave her all for this photoshoot. Literally: not only did she pose on the rooftops of Manhattan, but she also had the infinite generosity of doing it with her two children to celebrate this great family number. Don’t think it was easy to get them to stay still and look at the camera …
They posed only when they wanted and, if I asked, they did the opposite! “, She recalls amused. “But I think we managed to get some very sweet moments, didn’t we?” Anacan, 4, and Ariel, 2, are the result of their relationship with their ex-partner, the Brazilian model Hermann Nicoli. From them, she says, she learns daily things about herself that she did not know. And although being a supermodel and a supermother at the same time requires a dose of extra juggling, Candice gets along: “It’s not always easy, but the key lies in priorities and personal time management. You have to do the best you can always within your circumstances, “she says convinced.
It is due to the countless amount of trips and the crazy work schedules, that many times it has been questioned if both concepts are compatible. Also, in the aspect physical, there are still those who consider it a scandal that a top cannot change her body. Fortunately, women like Swanepoel struggle with such archaic thoughts as this: after Ariel was born, paparazzi photographed her on the beach, in a bikini, and received numerous derogatory comments. So many, that he did not hesitate to put the points on The i’s in an Instagram post: “This is me 12 days after giving birth. If you have something bad to say, make yourself look at it. Beauty standards are impossible for women today and I am not ashamed of my postpartum body. What’s more, I’m proud. I’ve had my son in there for nine months, so I think it’s my right to have a little belly, “she defended. Having worked in fashion for so many years, she says, has taught her to be stronger: “Not everyone will like you, and nothing happens either. If someone shows me hate, that does not speak of me; it’s something they have to deal with themselves. Her motherhood also awakened her desire to help other mothers with a different fate than her own.
For years, Candice has collaborated as an ambassador with the Mothers2Mothers association, from which they help African women and children by providing them with better health and futures and fighting
Against AIDS. “I am from Africa, so I have grown up seeing a lot of suffering from this disease and have always wanted to help in some way. When I became a mother, this organization touched me deeply, ”she explains. One more facet of this unstoppable woman who, since 2017, has also been joined by the entrepreneur of her own sustainable brand of swimsuits, Tropic of C, which she started with the memory she had of making her own bikinis as a child from the remains of her mother’s lycra clothing. With it she has reinvented her career without stopping what captivated her almost two decades ago: modeling. Of course, in 10 years from now, she imagines herself reuniting with that calm with which she idealizes her childhood today. «On a beach or in the field, watching my wonderful children grow into adults and keeping my creative side in some way.

Iglesias sisters and model Candice Swanepoel, stars of the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar.
This month is a tribute to the FAMILY, to the magic that those around us create. An exciting trip from New York to Marbella loaded with iconic images and ink-based tales of purest love. Can you come with us? #weareFAMILY.
For the love of the family. The October issue of Harper’s Bazaar is an ode to the family in all its forms and presentations, both to the people with whom you share blood and to those who have come over the years to stay. Here is our little tribute to the most real and true form of affection. An intimate journey of almost 200 pages loaded with iconic images and ink-based tales of the purest love celebrating the value of FAMILY above all else.
“At Harper’s Bazaar we celebrate the family as a personal language full of fantasies, illusions, values and contradictions. Because fashion, beauty, and culture are. A family like all the others, extraordinarily well-paved and full of exquisite fruits possibilities. It is like the most valuable work of art. With as many versions as styles or personalities: realistic, modernist or even surrealist! “, begins by saying Inmaculada Jiménez , director of Harper’s Bazaar Spain.
“Fiercely influential, impeccably rich and full of the complexity that great treasures entail. It is all a rising value destined for us to take great care in its care. And as a first pampering, these pages dedicated to that nucleus as special, complex and ancestral as diverse and unique, those people who humanize you and are there to make you forget yourself from time to time. Therefore, here is our little tribute to the most real and true form of affection. An intimate journey through the sagas that inspire us, at a time where the emotional is more than opportune “, she adds.
And to illustrate this concept of family, on our October Harper’s Bazaar covers we take an exciting trip from New York to Marbella. On the one hand, on one of the covers that will reach the kiosk we find the sisters Cristina and Victoria Iglesias from their Malaga farm, in what translates as their first pose for an international fashion magazine. Both dressed as Pertegaz , portrayed by Javier Biosca’s lens and under the stylistic baton of Beatriz Moreno de la Cova.
On the second kiosk cover , Candice Swanepoel poses for the first time, exclusively for Harper’s bazaar Spain with her children with New York City as the setting. Dressed in a Balmain cape, a Miu Miu belt and Paris Texas boots, she poses in front of David Roemer’s lens and under the styling of Elizabeth Sulcer.
On the subscriber cover, Candice Swanepoel in pants and bracelet, both by Chanel , and a belt by Saint Laurent BY Anthony Vaccarello.
And also a third exclusively digital cover , the model (hugging her son) wears a wool coat with Prada bead fringes . The South African model, mother of two, stars in some images to remember as she uses her influence to help African women fight AIDS and offer their descendants a better future.
In addition to these fascinating women, we take a tour of the main sagas of fashion, beauty and culture. We enter the heart of one of the main family businesses in international jewelery and bring together the TOUS saga to talk about professionalization, values, present and future.
We also spoke with sisters Lucía and Helena Cuesta ; we brought together a very special tribe thanks to the latest work by Félix Sabroso who has not hesitated to unite Bibiana Fernández, Alaska, Mario Vaquerizo, among others (without a doubt, one of those families who are chosen); we go through the main sagas that have marked history or we speak with the creative idyll formed by Dolce & Gabbana (Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana). If after 35 years working side by side, they don’t consider themselves family … what else is it?
In fashion, everything that will dictate a trend this season; in beauty, the best comeback you could imagine, in this atypical fall, as beauty reaffirms itself as an accurate injection of optimism. And in culture , Viggo Mortensen makes his directorial debut with Falling. And to kick off autumn, we travel to the heart of the purest and most traditional nature with the Irati jungle as the protagonist, that getaway that we are looking forward to doing as soon as we get the chance.
In this new scenario of life full of uncertainty, we make our hearts beat. More than ever. Celebrating the value of family, in all its forms. Welcome to the magazine, welcome to October at Harper’s Bazaar . Can you come with us? Come in and read. #weareFAMILY
*The October issue of Harper’s Bazaar available at your trusted kiosk starting September 21.

Candids > 2020 > September 17 – Candice Swanepoel spotted at Westside Market in NY
2020. 09. 15., admin
British Vogue shared a new article in their website with a serie of photographies and interviews to 19 famous models, including Candice.
“Self-care was always important to me, not only because it was my job to look good, but for me to reward myself for working hard and for my overall wellbeing. [Since having kids] the time I have for myself is few and far between, but it’s still important as a mother to feel good. Being a mum is not a glamorous job, but it is fulfilling, so I find that time when necessary.
“I love a sheet mask, but I have to do them when my kids are sleeping or they try to pull them off and play with them. There is a stage in motherhood — more like a couple of years — when you feel guilty for taking time for yourself. It’s just a natural feeling when they are so young and dependent I guess. So I do my beauty rituals at night after they go to bed.”
