The first of four highly anticipated 2013 Victoria's Secret Swim catalogues has hit mailboxes, and with only a couple months left of winter, it couldn’t have come at a better time. Shot by famed fashion photographer Russell James on the sunny beaches of Turks and Caicos and Miami, the catalogue features the sexiest swimsuits inspired by old Hollywood, glamorous starlets, and their chic escapes to the most luxurious destinations in the world.
Victoria's Secret is not only loved for their sexy lingerie all over the world but is known for launching the careers of the most iconic supermodels. So, when they selected Angel Candice Swanepoel to appear on the cover of the first Swim catalogue cover of the year, it did not disappoint. Candice sported a very sexy Bandeau bikini, a retro-inspired push-up that comes in an assortment of colors and seductive prints -- which is perfect for anyone wanting to unleash their personality by creating their own style by mixing and matching the tops and bottoms for that perfect swimsuit combination.
Candice (a South Africa native) has been with Victoria's Secret since 2007 when she first walked in the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Since then, she has been seen in a variety of their print and television campaigns; being featured on the cover of Victoria's Secret Swim catalogue is definitely one of the highlights of her career. "It feels amazing being on the cover of the Swim catalogue! Before I was a model, I used to see Gisele Bundchen, Tyra Banks, and all of those iconic women on it. It is amazing that a little South African girl can get on the cover," says Candice.
Along with the new catalogues, Victoria's Secret will release the all knew “Angels and Artists” sexy swim videos that will feature not only some of the world’s hottest musical artists, but the world's most beautiful supermodels. The first video in the series, "Bikinis and Bruno Mars", has already launched along with the release of the first catalogue and features sizzling swim footage of Candice and fellow Angel Doutzen Kroes, all set to the #1 Bruno Mars smash, "Locked Out of Heaven".
Additional videos featuring music by chart topping artists will be released throughout the swim season, and with the recent Victoria's Secret Fashion Show featuring musical guest such as Bruno Mars, Rihanna, and Justin Bieber, I can only guess that they might be featured in some of the upcoming videos. But if you want to know for sure, visit "Angels and Artists" on the Victoria's Secret Website to stay up-to-date and watch all of the upcoming sexy musical collaborations.
