The kickoff for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has officially started as the first episode of Road To The Runway has been released.
In it the models who attended the castings talk about their experience in the fashion show, but not only their experience in the catwalk, they also spoke about the backstage vibes.
“Is like a sisterhood.”
“I was amazed backstage on my first walk because even the veterans were inviting.”
“You’re kind of cheerleaders for each other.”
The episode is now in Victoria’s Secret YouTube channel under the title “Road To The Runway 2018: Episode 1 – More Than A Runway.”
After giving birth to her son Ariel this summer, model Candice Swanepoel is ready to return to the runway—the Victoria’s Secret runway, that is. With a whirlwind travel schedule and all that prepping for a 20-foot pair of Angel wings, the model has little time for beauty sleep these days—relying on what she laughingly calls a tried-and-true “fake natural” beauty routine to look fresh-faced and wide awake.
First up, to achieve her signature wind machine waves, Swanepoel twists her hair into a set of double buns before getting to work on her skin. “If I had time, I would do the eye masks, because Lord knows I haven’t slept in two years,” she says, alluding good-naturedly to the birth of her first child, Anaca, while securing her hair. Instead, a special rosewater mist and a heavy-duty, professional Kryolan concealer—sheered out with a few drops of face oil—cover sun damage and dark circles like magic.
“Blush on the nose gives a fake sun-kissed look,” she explains, dabbing her fingers over the bridge with a peony-pink pot of Stila pigment, before patting the same rosy hue on the tops of eyelids and cheekbones for a radiant finish. Full brows and fluttery, mascara-coated lashes are also essential to her beauty equation.
But perhaps the most important piece of the puzzle comes down to a highly moisturized and pink-tinted pout. “This is my absolute favorite,” Swanepoel says of Palmer’s buy-in-bulk staple lip balm. “I don’t go anywhere without it.” Next comes a coat of Benefit’s cherry stain to prime and a swipe of NARS deep red pencil—applied with an eyeshadow brush—to look “more pouty.”
“I’ve always felt freckles look really youthful,” she says, drawing on tiny dots with Dior’s taupe brown brow pencil around her forehead and cheeks. And with that, Swanepoel presses a fine translucent powder onto her skin and flashes a peace sign at the camera—because for this Victoria’s Secret Angel, every day is lights, camera, action.

As we reported last week Candice’s trip to Australia was for film and promote the new campaign of Oppo’s new phone, the R15.
Two interviews have been released since then but a few days we could finally see the first video for the campaign and we have new behind the scenes photos of it courtesy of her body double and other model of the commercial.
You can watch the commercial here:
Hi, I’m Candice Swanepoel.
I’m in Australia as an international ambassador for Oppo, and we’re shooting the new camera phone the our 11s.
With a bump it’s definitely a whole different situation. I definitely always go for pretty flowy dresses like I’m wearing now, but I think it at some stage it becomes about comfort as well so you’re trying to be comfortable and cute at the same time as hot, but I think feminine is always beautiful because pregnancy is such a beautiful time in a woman’s life.
I think to be as feminine as possible accentuates the beauty.
It’s always about a balance for me so one meal and the day will be lighter than the others.
Probably during lunch I’ll do something heavier so that my body has time to burn it off and night time something lighter, and I always have a big breakfast breakfast, is like my favorite meal of the day so I’ll do like eggs and bacon and the whole lot.
I did the Victoria’s Secret Show pregnant so I was trying to work out as much as possible without overdoing it so I would, you know, jog on the beach and that kind of thing, but now I relax a lot during my pregnancy and just let my body rest a lot so it’s more about long walks or swimming, something that’s fun and not like going to the gym. It’s kind of like a holiday for me.
Dker Nation, a Instagram based magazine launched by Jacques Dequeker and Nation by Crane shooted back in December a photoshoot with Candice in Fernando de Noronha which has been launched a hours ago in the Instagram feed of the magazine.
In the photoshoot Candice wears pieces of her collection as well as dress from NK, Rosa Cha and jewelry from Rincawesky.
Angels are blessed creatures, messengers of God. The sacred writings say that, in the end of all, when the last sign of life is dying, a shining, delicate and beautiful angel will come to save us and show us the way of hope for all humanity.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Meet our angel: Candice
Candice shooted just two months ago in the Nascar track of Miami a mysterious shoot that today was revealed by Sports Illustrated Swimsuit as the new commercial of Kia for their new Stinger.
Back in September she took part of a race with A-Rod, Joan Smalls and Cameron Dallas in which she was the winner.
In the commercial released by SI Swimsuit you can see Candice wearing a red bathsuit, which is typical in SI, black pants, red lipstick matching with her swimsuit and the car she’s driving. She wears also a black belt around her belly, let’s not forget our girl is expecting her second baby boy.
You can watch the commercial in our Instagram and Twitter.
Will we see pictures of Candice for SI swimsuit?
