Candice Swanepoel and Adriana Lima at the VS store [Victoria's Secret]
By now, you'll be well aware that the Victoria's Secret show is coming to London this year. We've had 24 hours to digest the news, giving us ample time to get over-excited about the outfits! the acts! the Angels! but there's MORE. Grazia Daily grabbed a chat with two of the glossiest Angels of them all - Candice Swanepoel and Adriana Lima - to find out what they love most about our fair city...
GD: What's your favourite thing to do in London?
Adriana: The shopping is amazing in London and there are some really beautiful sights too. Hopefully today I’ll have time to go to Kew Gardens.
Candice: We’re always travelling in and out so there’s not usually time to see too much, but I do love the English sense of humour.
GD: And are there any British style icons you admire?
Adriana: Victoria Beckham's style is very simple but elegant.
Candice: I agree, she's impeccably dressed. I've worn some of her dresses in the past and they are very A-line, elegant dresses.

GD: And how would you sum up British style?
Candice: It depends on the individual. I think British women push the boundaries and they’re not afraid to show their personality through clothing. There are so many options here in the UK - just driving around, you see so many stores - so you have the chance to be whatever you want to be.
GD: It's quite a contrast to the Coachella style this weekend. How do you go to a festival and still look glamorous?
Candice: I don’t know if 'glamorous' and 'festivals' in the same sentence works! But Coachella is definitely more of a fashion forward festival. But really my festival must-have is handwipes!
Adriana: Boho style always works if you’re going to Coachella and Alessandra [Ambrosio] pulls it off really well, but I’ve never been to any myself. Honestly, I’m not like a person who would go to festivals and big concerts because I’m very reserved. I do like see the pictures to get inspiration for my style though.
GD: Are you a festival fan, Candice?
Candice: I do love it because I don’t go to clubs so it’s nice to go to a festival and see live music. I also love watching live DJs and dancing to electronic music. It’s just the energy. Live music gets me going.

GD: So what are your essentials for summer?
Adriana: Bikinis worn with little light dresses and flip flops are good for me. I love wearing yellow in the summer.
Candice: I tend to wear a lot of denim shorts and summer's perfect for wearing colour. In winter, I tend to wear a lot of beige and black so I have a lot of girly dresses when the sun's out.
GD: Lindsay Ellingson recently showed us her bracelet designs, Karlie Kloss is making cookies, Alessandra Ambrosio and Lily Aldridge are designing... are there any secret talents you’ve got?
Adriana: My secret talent is jumping rope and cooking. I love to cook Brazilian food. And Candice likes a little Brazilian too. She’s always there!
Candice: Yeah, I like to cook Brazilian food as well and invite family over for dinner.
GD: Any hostess-with-the-mostess tips?
Candice: It depends on your guests. My guests are normally family so it’s pretty laid back, but just be sure you make enough!
