Candice Swanepoel : model makes an effort to put on weight before runway shows

Model Candice Swanepoel says she tries to gain weight before Victoria’s Secret runway appearances.

Speaking to the shortly after Victoria’s Secret announced it would produce its annual runway show in London this year, the South African supermodel admitted that she gets serious stage fright.

Sitting opposite a glowing Candice Swanepoel at this morning’s press call where it was revealed that the next Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will be staged in London, the South African beauty opened up about how nerve-wracking she finds the annual lingerie extravaganza.

“I get so nervous, it’s terrible,” the 25-year-old told The Telegraph, explaining how stress takes its toll on her weight. “I get nervous about three weeks before the show. Last year I had to take a week off, because I get really nervous and all the muscle that I’ve built up I lose it really quickly if I get stressed out. So I took my trainer to Brazil where I can eat a lot of meat because I like to be a little bigger for the show, just to feel sexier and more womanly.”

Explains Candice: “I have a furious metabolism, especially when I travel so much. I can’t really do too much cardio or that sort of thing.”

The Victoria’s Secret Angels are known for posting pictures of their amped-up workouts in the run-up to the show to make sure they look their best, and it’s not difficult to appreciate the pressure they feel; the broadcast is watched by millions of viewers worldwide.

“It’s a big event for us. And you know you’re going to be wearing very little, and there’s going to be pictures all over the world the next day,” she adds.

The blonde says she has a sweet tooth: “I love cakes and ice cream but I’m not crazy – I like a little taste and then I’m fine,” and also loves Brazilian food, which is where her boyfriend Hermann Nicoli hails from and is the place she calls home alongside New York.
