1988 – 2010
Candice Swanepoel was born on October 20, 1988, in the village of Mooi River, Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. At only 15-years-old, the young Candice first broke into the world of fashion after being discovered by a modeling scout in a flea market in Durban. Candice quickly rose in the industry, landing multiple major contracts in Europe, while making about €5,000 euros a day.
Swanepoel first appeared on the runway for fashion companies such as Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce & Gabbana. She spent her years modeling in places like Milan, London, Paris, and South Africa.
In 2007, Swanepoel’s career really began to pick up after she signed with the world’s famous lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret. In 2010, she graduated to angel status within the company, making her the first South African model to hold this distinction.
