When you're in the throes of a typical British winter it's never nice to think that someone, somewhere is having fun in the sun, especially when that someone is a drop dead gooorgeous swimwear model. Victoria's Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel has been in St Bart's this week shooting what looks like a new campaign for the swimwear giant with photographers Paola + Murray. Her office for the duration is a picturesque beach. To say we're jealous is an understatement.
In a behind the scenes photo from the shoot Candice is seen posing with her back to the camera and looking over her shoulder with her pert bum covered in sand while in a second preview she writhes around on the beach in a fushia bikini. The 25-year-old star also used Instagram to reveal a rare photo of herself with her boyfriend Herman Nicoli who she has been dating since she was 18. Male model Herman cradles his bikini-clad South African girlfriend in the black and white snap, which Swanepoel captioned, "#home #eu&ele @hermannicoli @jeromeduran @mikoh_".
As if the St Bart's pictures were't worthy of enough Insta-envy, the VS Angel has posted photos of a recent trip Brazil where she shot with snapper Jerome Duran for Vogue Brazil. The pics of the tropical adventure capture Candice under a waterfall, climbing a palm tree and hanging out in the jungle, all the while showcasing a selection of sexy swimsuits. Natch!
Speaking of which, Rihanna is in Brazil at the moment with her bessie Melissa Forde where the singer has also been shooting for Vogue Brazil - and showing off her two-piece collection. While angelic Candice appears the epitome of health and vitality, RiRi instead poses in her Insta photos puffing on a cigarillo. Clearly her New Year's resolution wasn't to give up smoking.
