You may have already enjoyed the preview of our December 2013 collector's edition cover with Michael Fassbender. But this month we are offering you TWO covers. And here, showing just why she was named one of Forbes' Top 10 earning models of the year, is Victoria's Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel.
The South African supermodel, who is she signed to IMG (the superagency that also represents Gisele, Kate Upton, Miranda Kerr, Lara Stone...) will be modelling the Fantasy Bra at the legendary Victoria's Secret catwalk show on 13 November, wears a metallic pink leather jacket by Saint Laurent on the cover, casually slung over a classic James Perse white T-shirt, while on the subscribers' cover she is wearing a Prada Hawaiian print jacket with Marques'Almeida jeans.

Candice also reveals the terrible homesickness and loneliness she experienced as a young model living in Europe, and the alienations she felt when she called home to speak to friends: 'You try and keep the same relationships, but so much happened to me, so many adult things - it's impossible to have the same conversation. Your mind has changed so much.'
