Africa’s finest diamond: Candice Swanepoel
You probably haven’t heard of Candice Swanepoel and that’s probably because she comes from the most unlikely of places. Candice is a 20-year-old model from South Africa and was born in Mooi River, KwaZulu-Natal, and was scouted at the age of 15 in a Durban flea market.
By 16, she was raking in 5,000 euros per photo shoot and has graced the cover of the Greek Vogue. She’s worked for Nike, Tommy Hilfiger, Victoria’s Secret, and Diane von Fürstenberg.
