    Easy one! Leeegggggggsssssssss!

    • linda

      Yeah, easy. Stand straight woman!

      • Kate

        She seem to suffer from Lordosis..

    • Emmy

      I thought it was Erin. She doesn’t have that so called crazy waist when she’s standing normal.

      • Alexandra

        Guys, her waist hasn’t changed in any way whatsoever.

        The reason why it appears to not be as small as usual is because EVERY SINGLE ONE of these photos is obscuring her waist in some way. She’s either in the middle of some weird movement (a la photo #1), or she’s posing with her arms in front of her waist, posing to the side, busy turning around, etc.
        The *only* photo where she’s facing the camera and her waist is unobscured is the 5th to last photo, and in it, her waist looks just as tiny as always.

        • alyssa

          She has a good WHR but when it looks ‘crazy’ (by which I assume you mean pronounced) is when she arches her back, and tilts her pelvis.

          You can see some of the pictures when she’s doing it for the shoot.

          There is one full, straight up and down shot where she is standing normally (not posing) where you can see her relaxed body.

          Its a great body and I think she’s put on some muscle she looks good

      • lizzy

        i said erin too! the angle in the picture with the bubble disguised candice’s waist

  • Sidney

    I thought Miranda Kerr. Definitely a VS model anyway, they all have such similar bodies somehow..

  • jamie

    Wow, this was an easy one!!Amazing body, as always. these swimsuit shoots all seem to blend together. I feel like ive seen this one before

  • Pixie

    I actually got this one, could tell by her awkward stance. Anyway, looks great, blah blah.

  • Kik

    I just knew it was Candice because of the lame pose and huge mole on stomach. I am a little bit sick of this overexposed girl.

    • Kelly-Ann

      HUGE mole? WTF? Itยดs a large freckle at most…

    • HB

      I’m sick of her too, and her poses are SO exaggerated to make her look like she has a big curvy ass. She doesn’t.

      • Diana

        Oh and HB, she DOES have a big ass AND an arched back. Never seen a girl like that? lol, It’s so natural ๐Ÿ™‚

        • misscheeks

          Diana, lol come on now! “Big ass”? Really? *snort* Where?

          • Diana

            By big I mean a curvy, toned and perky ass. I’m talking about how it looks and not the literal size. She does have an out standing bum, IMO again ๐Ÿ™‚

        • kim

          her but looks pretty non-existant if not for that arch in her back. take pic #14 and turn it around and i bet it’s as flat as a pancake! it takes muscle for skinny women to have “perky” asses and this girl is definitely lacking in that department. “toned”? i don’t think so – that’s called “young with good genes”

          • misscheeks

            Yes agreed kim! Diana, I took “big” to mean the opposite of small because that’s the real dictionary definition. Candice bum is flat, I’m not fooled by the curve of her back (because I have lordosis too) at all. Jessica Biel has a lower back curve too but her glutes are what I would call “big” in this pic, the kind of butt you lift heavy weights to achieve not a flat booty with a curved back that Candice curves even more in photos:
            Jordin Sparks also has a big butt, see how she doesn’t need to arch her back or stick her bum out?:
            But Candice nah! You’re entitled to your opinion of course by saying it’s “outstanding” but like kim says, for a slim girl to have a big, perky butt with actual gluteal mass (apart from her posing, Candice has none whatsoever: http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTlk1kpaWmJbkaxH9LOhw3Y1R0B3pelM0ZofAmv42c2u7Upb4wd) you need to build them with resistance. There’s no such thing as having a “toned” anything, lower bf%? yes, absolutely and I do agree with you that Candice does have that but real gluteal muscle mass? no. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • kim

            WORD misscheeks! so many people on this site don’t understand the difference between “fit”/”skinny” and “toned”/”low body fat %”. words like “curvy” are a little more subjective and definitely more about relativity but when it comes to the facts, candice has a low body fat % that probably has less to do with exercise than it does with good genetics, youth and diet. no doubt she is a beautiful girl and obviously a good model with that VS sex appeal – not hating – just calling it as i see it ;-P

    • Diana

      What? Huge mole? that actually sounds so ignorant. Over exposed because she’s, imo, the prettiest VS model with the best body! And VS knows that. Candice is so beautiful and perfect. She stands out from all the VS models. And btw, she’s not 1% lame, if anything, she’s the most seen in VS ads and photos, am I not right?

  • Jennifer

    All vs angels look the same. I remember back in the days of Gisele, Heidi and Tyra you had to have something a little extra. Now anyone can be an angel. Snooze!

    • Annee

      Well, I think Doutzen is still pretty special. Personally I didn’t think Giselle was very beautiful…

      And in comparison with Candice, Doutzen has actually a bum. Look for example at these behind the scenes pictures of her. Amazing!
      (I know, I sound a bit obsessed ๐Ÿ˜‰





      • Jennifer

        I have always been a fan of Doutzen, even before she was part of VS. There is always an exception, but I still feel like they lack variety and personality. I feel like all of the original VS Angels had more to offer than just pretty faces. I was never a huge Gisele fan, but I can understand why people are she makes stupid comments sometimes but at least she has a personality as did Heidi, Tyra and Marissa (who is still an Angel) I feel like they didn’t try so hard to be sexy because they are already very sexy women. Candice and all of the current VS Angels try so hard and it is just not attractive. Lol I am stepping off of my soap box now…

    • Sheza

      I agree although I think Doutzen and Adriana are ‘special’. Personally, I think Barbara is really pretty too but the rest are kinda mehh.

  • jane

    Did she gain a few small pounds? She looks fabulous!

    • pewdipewpie

      goooorgeous, arching it like her life depends on it, totally.

  • D

    When she actually stands normal and doesnt arch the shit out of her back, her torso seems straight up and down like adrianas/mirands/doutzens? And all this time I thought she had a crazy hip to waist ratio lol

    • She does have a great WHR – it was more pronounced when she was a bit softer though: http://img226.imagevenue.com/img.php?image=11213_Candice_Swanepoel3_122_456lo.jpg

      • lol

        “She does have a great WHR โ€“ it was more pronounced when she was a bit softer though:”

        Her WHR more pronounced when she’s “softer”? why is that then erica? is it because it makes you feel better about yourself again? and she is hardly “soft” in that picture and never has been. She is a slim toned young woman who may have lost or gained a few pounds here or there, but even at her highest weight always slim and toned. Everytime there is a post on Candice you try hard to search for pictures of her “softer” as you put it. You need to stop acting like she’s used to look like Christina Hendricks once. she never has and she never will. due to the fact she has a slender frame. and her WHR is the same no matter what picture I have seen of her. The only way it would look un-pronounced is if she were to gain a ton of weight and become obese, which would never happen anyway since she is super tall and naturally slim to begin with.

        • MerryHappy

          Dude, chill out. You come across very crazy and obsessed with Erica in a very unhealthy way.

    • justme

      She still has a pretty nice waist/hip ratio (going by the first pink/yellow floral swimsuit picture), but its a much more gradual transition than I expected. The widest part of her lower body is in her upper thighs, not her hips like I expected. Not a bad thing, just looks different when she isn’t throwing her back out. ๐Ÿ˜›

    • idontknowyouyoudontknowme

      Agreed! Either way I think her legs and overarching are her main selling points; I’ve never thought she had a mindblowing WHR or torso.

  • CK

    Candice….you know you read too much celebrity gossip when you can guess smb not even by the body but by a simple pose))))
    agree with girls above this is an easy one to guess…

  • sarah

    This girl is perfection,I can’t find any imperfection: a skinny but womanly body.
    And those legs are to die for!

  • She has great legs – I knew it was her from the legs and the pose! I wish she wouldn’t arch so much – it looks so forced and awkward.
    She looks good and not *too* skinny and toned like she has done in recent years – but she used to look even better before VS, imo, just a little fleshier is best on her frame for me.

  • Grace

    Those legs! God, I have to hit the gym.

  • ebby

    her body is beautiful! homegirl can arch that back! it really helps to create the illusion of a fuller bottom. i’ve got pancake booty like her so i get why she arches like her life depends on it.

    • perryAnne

      hahahah. pancake bum indeed. i love that she works with what she’s got and makes it look good even if its doesn’t fit the ideal beauty standard. i’m in the same boat. i use all sorts of clothing, posture tricks to help my flapjack bum and jellyroll belly look better. but i’ve also recently hit the gym, so hopefully i eventually i won’t have to resort to all the trickery anymore.

  • Casey

    Her face is actually prettier to me than her body in these photos.

    Based off of other photos I’ve seen of her recently, she’s lost weight again and is straight up bony. It’s not as apparent in these photos because of the soft lighting, but she doesn’t look as curvy as usual. Usually her WHR is ridiculous and here it looks normal.

    • It’s strange – in some ways she looks softer, but you’re right that she also looks less curvy than usual. I haven’t seen any other photos of her recently, so I can’t compare though.

    • JaneParker

      Thank you! I thought I was the only one to see that. In that first pic her legs look way too skinny and her body looks pretty shapeless. And then I read the comments and everyone is commenting on how great her legs are! I like lean legs but that first pic is too much. And then I scroll down and she actually looks great and not too skinny in some pics. But I guess it’s because she’s arching her back. When she’s standing straight, like one usually does on our everyday life, she doesn’t look that good. I’m not jealous at all and a bit disappointed, she would be the bomb if she gained 5 pounds, but that’s probably out of the question for her anyway…

  • Emeline

    I prefer bigger boobs and a curvier butt, but her legs are really nice

  • Sophia

    As always, she looks nice in close-up and off in full body shots – imho. She has a horrible posture!
    But I loooooooooove her legs!

  • seijidan

    Her waist dont look as small as before

  • Debbs

    I knew it by the stance and ugly VS bikini.

  • Mootch

    Ouch my back hurts just looking at her hyperflexing her back

  • MissMarilyn


    I knew it was one of the VS girls. Candice is gorgeous as usual haha

  • misscheeks

    Candice has the short torso/long leg combination so her waist doesn’t always look super curvy. What gives her the illusion of having a curvy torso or “dramatic” whr is really her small ribcage, if her ribcage was bigger, her torso would have a “wider” look.

  • mary

    I gotta end these finals cause I’ve got to HIT THE GYM, fast!

  • deppfan

    She is beautiful when she is not posing..

    • Pauline

      I agree, I love seeing pictures of her when she is standing straight. She has a great shape.

  • Last picture: Chicken cutlets.

    • MissMarilyn

      OH NO hahahaha you can see it!

  • Winnie

    as soon as i saw the shoulders, i knew it was Candice. then i scrolled down and saw the tiny mole on her tummy. i guessed right for once! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • annemarie

    That was an easy one! The weird posing = Candice Swanepole. And she has gorgeous legs.

  • Hazal

    This one was easy!
    This girl should accept that she doesn’t have a butt and stop that ridiculous posing.

  • serena

    I adore Candice, but her posture could be improved, maybe from yoga? Plus she lost weight and I don’t think it suits her. Not only are her breasts tiny, but she’s lost the curve of her hips which is why her whr doesn’t look dramatic (though her waist is still tiny). You can fake boobs with chicken cutlets but you can’t fake hips/whr; those are part of her natural beauty, what helped her stand out from other skinny models. Maybe a bit of added weight and muscle tone would help. But she still looks fantastic.

  • La la la la

    absolute perfection! gorgeous

  • snugglepup

    Yeah easy one… Only that her curves don’t look as drastic as usual ๐Ÿ˜€ Her back’s going to be like a shelf if she keeps on pushing her tooshie out like that 24/7

  • Katie

    I find this girl so trashy. I know that everyone seems to like her but I find her to be so over exposed.

    • happygolucky

      I’ve also gotten a trashy vibe from her, too, for some reason. That first bikini doesn’t help in that regard either.

  • Tonia

    i think Miley Cirus has a much better whr than candice. yet i havent seen people comment as much.
    one day this girl will permanently throw out her back.

    • Jennifer

      I agree! Candice is a pear shape, the only reason people think she is an hourglass is because of her ridiculous posing and photoshop.

  • binks

    Got it right…lol I love how lean and tone her body is.

  • Miss x

    Tired of this overexposed poser. Every VS models look the same, except Adriana and Doutzen.

  • serena

    I think Candice’s back is somewhat naturally arched, but she arches it even more to look dramatic for the camera.

  • jessiepants

    Beautiful! I love her figure and her face is so pretty one of my favs! I don’t mind the poses she’s so hot who cares…

  • happygolucky

    Her legs don’t do it for me. The length is nice, for sure, but they are scrawny and lacking definition to my eyes. Guess my ideal is more muscle /strength.

  • roonie

    I usually find the blonde and tanned look boring but Candice is stunningly beautiful. She has an amazing figure but is her back naturally arched like that? If not it’s really unnecessary to arch it THAT far.. looks silly.

  • misscheeks

    You know what? I don’t really like her body that much at all. Lol I know it’s probably heresy to say it here on SvC, but I’ve said it. There’s no “wow” factor at all imo. Now excuse me while I go and hide from the onslaught of stones haha!

    • annabeatrice

      I’m with you, misscheeks! I think her body is nice for sure, but I don’t think it’s O-M-G amazing, “she is a goddess!” like everyone says. And I must say it’s quite annoying that every body that is featured here is compared to Candice’s, like she’s some kind of reference or something. *sigh*

    • serena

      Lol it’s not heresy, I’m sure many people agree with you. I’m a Candice fan but she is not as appealing here because she blends in with Miranda, Erin, etc…the VS girls are all starting to look the same and that’s boring. She used to be a bit heavier and had more curve to her hips which made her waist look tiny.

      • annabeatrice

        In all honesty, I don’t think her waist was ever *that* minuscule.


        I think it’s mostly good posing and a decent amount of photoshop that give the impression of a dramatic whr. But hey, maybe that’s just me.

        • serena

          It’s not just about the waist, but its proportion to hips. Weight gain makes the waist less defined (like in your picture). But Weight loss makes hips smaller (the above pictures). And you’re right that posing makes all the difference. She is pear/skittle shaped so at such a low weight her boobs are barely there either. Too skinny is never good, but I guess for a VS model weight gain is worse.

  • lc

    Great figure.

  • retrobanana

    wow i knew candy! …..easy i guess because of the legs…i admit they look to die but i dont see any amazing body …again adriana, miranda, and doutzen are my faves….i like that black bathingsuit putting it on the wish list

  • Stephanie

    And there goes my self esteem. Just joking, but she looks incredible!!

  • victoria

    woo i finally guessed one right, but i only got it because of candice’s unique ribcage

  • ary

    her legs look amazing here! Like AMAZING. Defined calves and a tiny bit of more weight on her thighs. But i’m not a fan of her torso. Her waist definition isn’t a sexy one, imo. I think it’s because her ribcage is so small.

  • lucy

    thats the first ive ever got right! can just tell because of the arms and the fact she’s standing on tiptoes – standard VS pose

  • Megan Don

    As much as I freaking adore Candice, she’s got to relax that charlie horse in her spine. It actually hurts just looking at it all bent.

  • Angie

    haha I knew it! I envy her body. She must have amazing control to be that toned

  • annabeatrice

    What’s up with Candice’s hair? She has some crazy regrowth going on…

    Great legs.

  • Isabel

    Ths is the first time i got it right. I’m so familiar with her body. i find her to be too skinny for my taste sometimes, but she has good proportions and a great butt!! I find her to be way curvier than many so called curvy celebrities out there.

  • Kimberly

    Meh…her figure looks so strange sometimes. Honestly, the tiny rib cage/small boobs thing just doesn’t do it for me.

  • Chelsea

    I would love to be her, although I would want to be a couple inches shorter lol Tall looks great on models, but odd in the real world lol

    • Cal

      How does it look odd. 5 9 isn’t even tall.

      • serena

        Yes it is (178cm). In most of the world that is actually avg for a man and women are smaller. Models are supposed to be tall. Candice would surely stand out for her looks anywhere. Even in northern Europe I didn’t see too many girls like her.

        • Diana

          5’9 is actually 175cm.

      • Chelsea

        The average height for females is 5’4, so yeah, 5’9 is tall.

    • Zoe

      I agree that generally women are shorter than men; however, I wouldn’t describe being a tall woman ‘in the real world’ as looking ‘odd.’ I don’t think it’s the appearance of being tall that’s ‘odd’; it’s just the fact that there aren’t that many tall women in most countries, rather than the tall woman aesthetic looking strange/odd-looking so-to-speak. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ellia

      I must respectfully disagree. Tall in real-life looks statuesque. There is a certain amount of presence that a tall woman has when she walks into a room…so I guess one would notice her more readily (and label her as ‘odd’ or whatnot). But the fact is–you notice her!

  • dutchie

    I am super distracted by that weird hand peeping out of the tent in the first pic.

    • Bashayer

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s distracted by that hand. Lol

  • JJ

    What awful, shapeless legs. Kinda scary. Pretty face, though!

  • Andrea

    I Love this girl. She always seems so happy, she puts out a good vibe, someone I would love to meet. I would love to see what her body looks like in real life as the camera makes you look different sometimes. She is my favourite model. Just my opinion.

  • Indigo Lace

    Simply beautiful. I think the hype about her is justified.

  • Heather

    I love love love her body. Lots of people don’t get the hype and they are entitled to their opinion. I, however, just love her. 5th pic from bottom, no ridiculous posing…lol, just my idea of a perfect bikini body. Love her.

    • lc

      Yeah, the one where she faces the camera, where she’s just walking? Incredible. I’d do a double take!

      • Heather

        lc, I totally agree…I’d probably gawk. Lol.

        • lc


  • Loi

    She manages to not look cheap wearing such nothing! She has an awesome booty to boot!

  • Veronika

    Candice is normally my dream body as I have a similar WHR/build to her normally but I have to say that her waist is looking less defined here (her legs though… jealousy unbounded) Still a beautiful girl but I’ll admit I like her figure better when she’s a little thinner and her waist is tinier.

  • alaska

    this one was easy to guess. i kind of like how she usually has regrowth, makes her seem a little natural i guess.
    forever envious of her legs.

  • Chelsea

    Does anyone know if you can get this hair color at a salon? I love it!

  • Mia-Ciara


  • Alicia

    From a distance, I bet those gold strips read as skin color. Making her look bottomless with a huge bush hehe

  • jerry z

    doesn’t she kind of look like she has a big butt? like a sexy big butt, but a big one none the less???

    • misscheeks


    • Diana

      Definitely yeah!

    • Jay

      not at all.. she just arches her back. if you see pics of her standing like a normal human being her ass is actually quite small. shes good at fooling people into thinking she has an ass though..

  • Natalia

    Very pretty commercial model, not beautiful or unique, but good for lingerie. My grandmother watches Young and Restless and a character named Sharon looks very much like her. Her arms length and shoulders kind of look like mine but more fat, but I don’t like her inner thigh bulge, I wondere why she hasn’t liposuctioned that, maybe b/c there is photoshop. All in all, still above average woman that looked more unique w/ natural dark blonde/light brown hair.

    • Kimberly

      Bored again are you? Blah, blah, blah…..

    • Becca

      Natalia, get off this website. You’re toxic. If you compare yourself to a (successful, happy, beautiful, model) celeb again i’ll go ham on your removed*. You literally have no life, you sit on your butt criticizing 24/7, but let me tell you, karma will hit you sooo goood. But honestly, keep comparing yourself to others… it only shows what an insecure ignorant -b- you are.

  • anonymous

    Candice has a pretty face and a nice figure, but she’s a bit too thin for me. She looked best a few years ago when she was just starting out on the runway for VS (she looked a bit bigger then and it suited her). Overall she is a good looking girl, but her poses are hilarious. Without the extreme posing and push-up bras/bikini tops, she really does not look that curvy… She looks good in most of the VS photoshoots though… They could just ease a bit on the fake tan… For me Candice’s best features are her eyes, butt, and stomach… Her thighs are too skinny for personal liking though….
