Candice Swanepoel is a legend, at least to some of us. I understand that her work, at least the work that she is known for, is not all that important in the grand scheme of the world. She was a bikini and lingerie model for Victoria's Secret, arguably an evil Mall brand that represents all that is wrong in the American manufacturing industries, going offshore to source instead of manufacturing at home, all in efforts to save on costs, but not change the pricing to increase profits! Then there's the whole shipping of said panties half way around the world before landing on store shelves or under the Valentine's Day tree for our loved ones who have bought into the whole farce of "branding".
What I am trying to say is to not buy into the overpriced underwear hype, make a loin cloth out of an old t-shirt. If it was good enough for Tarzan it is good enough for your love interest!
That said, Candice Swanepoel is a legend because legends come in all varieties and your work as a legend doesn't need to be meaningful, it can be a cash grab from a bloated company. It can endorse all that is wrong with manufacturing. Especially since she was half naked doing it.
Her look was unique and I guess still is, it's not like she's dead, she can't be, she's right here in her garden posing and looking as pretty as ever.
The hope is that with her own brand "Tropic of C" and through her Charity work she can build on what she already has and contribute to the world so that her legendary status is more than just looking amazing in a bikini in her 20s.
In the mean time, let's appreciate her in the garden for some SPRING VIBES.
She was beautifully out of place•sometimes I think she intended to be• like the the moon during the day•
Which is a quote I am sure she didn't write, but is more a product of TOO much Quarantine, something I am sure you'd all love to help her out with until you realize it involves hanging out with her husband and their two young kids, in which case maybe her curated pictures are a better approach.
