Many of us have gotten so used to seeing Kate Upton wherever swimsuits are mentioned that it may come as a shock to find a new model sporting a bikini. Victoria’s Secret Swim has revealed their cover model for 2013, however, and she’s also a lovely blonde.
Candice Swanepoel won the coveted title and graces the cover of the catalog wearing a black strapless bikini top embellished with pearls and red beads in a floral pattern. Somehow, she’s managed to win the cover three years in a row now, which may not sit well with the other VS ladies.
The Angels made headlines late last year with the taping of their annual fashion show, during which they partied with the likes of Justin Bieber and Rihanna. Over the years, Victoria’s Secret has seen a huge rise in popularity with the addition of the runway show and the swimsuit issue has become as big for the models as Sports Illustrated is.
Look for the new catalog in your mailbox soon and gear up for spring break.
