The 2013 Victoria's Secret Swimsuit Catalogue was shipped out on January 3, and one lucky South African model was named the cover girl for the issue.
Candice Swanepoel, 24, appears on the cover of the catalogue and the model said it was an honor to be picked for the job. Swanepoel also appeared on the cover of the company's swimsuit catalogue in 2011.
"It was such an honor to be picked for the cover," she told People magazine. "It is such an iconic catalogue. Before I was a model, I used to see Gisele Bundchen, Tyra Banks and all of those iconic women on it. It is amazing that a little South African girl can get on the cover."
Swanepoel also appears in a promotional video along with Doutzen Kroes for the catalogue where the two are seen donning different swimsuits in the tropical location of Turks and Caicos while Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven" plays in the background.
On the cover, Swanepoel is seen wearing a bandeau top from the collection and the model told the magazine, "I love it -- it's so sexy and gives me amazing cleavage."
There will be three more catalogues by Victoria's Secret throughout the season. Check out the "Bikinis & Bruno Mars" promotional video featuring Swanepoel below.
