Candice Swanepoel was born on Oct. 20, 1988 in the small town of Mooi River in the Natal Province of South Africa. The blonde-haired blue-eyed beauty turns 25 today! Discovered at a flea market at the young age of 15, Swanepoel has since become one of the world's top models.
The supermodel has a whole lot to celebrate this week in addition to her birthday. She was chosen to wear the $10 million Royal Fantasy Bra in the 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, joining the ranks of mega-Angels like Heidi Klum and Gisele Bündchen. Swanepoel also just launched her new website, featuring her impressive modeling portfolio (there are a lot of Vogue covers in there!) and some pretty incredible videos that go back to when Candice was just a little girl living on a dairy farm.
It's been a super successful year for this supermodel. Swanepoel placed at No. 9 on Forbes' list, World's Highest-Paid Models Of 2013. $3.3 million in just one year? Up $200,000 from last year's income - definitely not too shabby.
Happy birthday Candice!
