Candice Swanepoel proved this week that not only is she one of the world’s most in-demand supermodels, but she’s also got pretty great balance. The mom of two and Victoria’s Secret Angel of over a decade shared a gravity-defying photo with her fans on Wednesday, July 8, in which she wore a strapless swimsuit as she laid on her back on top of a giant rock formation.
Candice struck one of her very best poses in the high-fashion photo, which was actually taken back in January. The lingerie model gave fans a look at her impressive flexibility as she arched her back and molded her body around the tall, red rock. The mom of two bent her right leg with her bare foot down on the earth. She let her left dangle down as she showed off her flawless figure.

My favorite images throughout my career are the ones where Im blending into an epic landscape like this one, simply an accessory to compliment nature’s perfection…This was taken in January before everything changed, before we all changed ~ captured beautifully as always by @luigiandiango @luigimurenu @georgisandev @monotofficial @carineroitfeld @elimizrahi ????
Her long blond hair also dangled down the side of the rock on which she rested her head. She bent her left arm and put her hand in her hair while she sprawled in the shadow of another large formation beside her.
In the caption of the snap, Candice explained that many of her favorite photos from shoots throughout her lengthy career haven’t been those taken indoors, but are instead the ones where she’s gone out into the world to interact with nature.
She told her 14.4 million followers that she likes it when she’s “blending into an epic landscape” and can feel like “an accessory” to nature. It’s not clear if the leg-baring swimsuit she wore in the photo was from her own line, Tropic of C, though Candice regularly models different looks from her own brand in photos shared to Instagram.
Plenty of Candice’s followers shared their thoughts on the stunning photo in the comments section.
“Gorgeous,” one person said with a star emoji.
“This is not a photo, is a piece of art,” another impressed Instagram user said.
“WOW! no words! You are such an inspiration and role model in everything you do!” a third comment read.
Candice’s upload has received more than 100,000 likes so far.
The stunning snap came shortly after the star modeled another black swimsuit from her own line in a photo posted to social media last month. In that photo, she stunned in a plain one-piece with two sets of seriously thin string straps on each shoulder during a trip to the beach. The swimsuit was made out of sustainable materials.
