It is winter out here, but Victoria Secret model Candice Swanepoel did not get the cold memo. The gorgeous South African model and current 2013 Victoria’s Secret swim catalog cover girl showed fans how to rock a Brazilian bikini bottom in a photo she tweeted on Jan. 10.
Swanepoel , currently in Brazil on vacation with her boyfriend showed off her butt in a barely-there tribal print bikini, which was a gift from a local Los Angeles-based swimwear line, according to a Jan. 11 Daily Mail report. The Victoria’s Secret model seemed very thrilled with her new gift, tweeting along with the photo, “'Thank you @frankiesbikinis for the Gift! i Love the tribal patterns #bikinioftheday #brasil.”
This new gift does not mean she is not as excited about her Victoria’s Secret bikinis. Swanepoel is honored to be the face of this year’s swim catalog. “It was such an honor to be picked for the cover,” the model tells the magazine. “It is such an iconic catalogue. Before I was a model, I used to see Gisele Bündchen, Tyra Banks and all of those iconic women on it. It is amazing that a little South African girl can get on the cover.”
In the cover photo, the model rocks one of Victoria’s Secret’s new lines for 2013; the Very Sexy bandeau top. “I love it — it’s so sexy and gives me amazing cleavage,” Swanepoel said. “Victoria’s Secret is like a big family,” she explains. “The swim shoots are always really fun, and I love being on the beach. I can’t really complain [about my job] — I feel very lucky!”
