2011-05-12 00:00

A KWAZULU-NATAL born supermodel has made it into the 10 top-earning female models in the world. Victoria’s Secret supermodel, Candice Swanepoel (22), came 10th on the Forbes World’s list of Top Earning Models for 2011. Her earnings for the past year are estimated to be $3 million (R20,5 million). Swanepoel, who has a skinny frame, recently made headlines when she appeared at the launch of the Victoria’s Secret swimsuit range alongside full-figured models. The supermodel was born and bred in Mooi River. She was discovered at the age of 15 by a modelling scout who saw her at the Durban flea market. Some time after she started her career on the catwalk, Swanepoel was making R40 000 for a single day’s work. She was recently on the cover of the Italian Vogue magazine and has featured in advertisements for True Religion jeans.
