We get the catalogs every other week, we tune in to watch the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and we even show up for appearances at our favorite lingerie store, Victoria’s Secret. Although it seems like Victoria’s Secret models may have the perfect body, most often, that’s not really the case. Recently, the rumor that has been much talked about is how Victoria’s Secret Model Candice Swanepoel might lose her job for reportedly losing too much weight. When the model, originally from South Africa, recently arrived in Los Angeles to model a new line at Victoria’s Secret, her figure is said to have stirred up controversy. The talk is, it seemed as if the model had lost even more weight than her already perfect Valentine’s Day campaign pictures taken just a few months earlier.
When asked about her new figure, 22-year-old Swanepoel said, “My diet, stress and a lot of traveling kind of deals with that for me. I workout a lot…I box, I’m obsessed with it. It helps a lot with traveling to be strong and carry on with everything,” says Candice.
But, the model did add that she’s been having trouble keeping weight on.
“Actually, this year my problem has been more about putting the weight on and getting muscle on because it’s been really busy. I’ve been traveling around like crazy. I get skinnier if I’m very busy.”
Aside from her health, Candice Swanepoel’s job may really be in jeopardy. A spokesperson for the Angels says models like Candice are expected to maintain a “healthy and muscular shape”. The insider adds, “They don’t want their models becoming to skinny because it could possible ruin their image.
Although Victoria’s Secret Candice Swanepoel has come under fire, during New York Fashion Week it was reported that Candice was trying to gain weight.
The company released a statement said to be about the situation saying, “We don’t comment on our clients’ personal lives.”
