In honour of Victoria's Secret model and South African beauty Candice Swanepoel's birthday (October 20), we felt inspired to take a look back at some of the model's best editorial looks. It certainly was no easy task to pick out a few images, since Swanepoel could look stunning in even a Polaroid, but we did our best to find the ones that especially stand out. Swanepoel's gorgeous blond locks, long limbs, and piercing eyes photograph so beautifully, and we found ourselves mesmerised by the ethereal creature she is. To see some of our favourite looks of Swanepoel's, keep scrolling!
We're entranced by Candice's full, bouncy curls in this photo. To get this look on your own, try blowing out your hair using a round brush, like Revlon Smooth Stay Medium Round Porcupine Brush ($11).
It's not often you see Candice in platinum blond locks, but we love the edgy vibe this hue is giving off. If you're daring enough to try this look yourself, we recommend preserving it with Paul Mitchell Blonde Platinum Blonde Shampoo ($14).
Well hello, Goldilocks! Candice's tight waves are full of texture and volume—totally romantic and rocker chic all at the same time. To really pump up the lift in your own roots, try Chi Texturizing Spray ($18).
Leave it to Terry Richardson to capture a super-chic and edgy Candice, complete with Sandy-from-Grease hair and a bold red lip. To complete your own red pout, swipe on some Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bloom ($8) in Rose Rush.
We love when Candice is all glammed up, but a more natural look is just as lovely, if not more. On her lids is a pretty purple tone that we're completely swooning over. We recommend Urban Decay Eyeshadow ($19) in Asphyxia.
Who better to emulate the iconic Marilyn Monroe than Candice—a fellow stunning blond bombshell. To get Candice's retro waves, pinning your curls in place while they cool with Marianna Single Prong Curl Clips ($7) will help them hold that circular shape.
You can't ignore the stunning cheekbone contour happening on Candice's complexion here. We recommend trying Nyx Highlight & Contour Pro Palette ($25) to get that defined look.
