Candice Swanepoel: I channel Sasha Fierce

Candice Swanepoel: I channel Sasha Fierce

Candice Swanepoel has to be Sasha Fierce while in the spotlight.

The 26-year-old model is best known as a Victoria's Secret Angel and was lucky enough to wear the lingerie giant's Fantasy Bra on the catwalk in 2013.

Her job may require her to strip down to just her smalls, but Candice has a way of coping with the attention surrounding her.

"It's weird, because I have a certain disconnection with my work persona and my regular persona. I have to kind of create a Sasha Fierce to deal with certain situations," she explained to Hello Fashion, referring to pop sensation Beyoncé Knowles' rebellious alter ego. "I don't like to show off. I'm not good with everything being about me. So when I'm out in these situations where I have to perform and everyone's focus is on me then I almost have to be somebody else."

She detaches herself so much that the blonde beauty doesn't even recognise herself on billboards or in magazines. On top of this she finds it rather awkward when approached in the street, but is thankful to have loyal fans who follow her success.

When she isn't busy modelling Candice spends time with her handsome boyfriend Hermann Nicoli, who she began dating when she was 17. He is a model as well and the couple are so smitten, Candice is open to the prospect of starting a family.

"I would love to have children," she smiled. "I'm not sure about marriage yet. I kind of feel married already. Ten years is kind of a marriage, so I don't really need papers to tell me that."
