V Magazine Models Issue Winter 2011: Candice Swanepoel


The beautiful South African model, Candice Swanepoel, captures the spirit of the sexy ski bunny, or as some say the sexy "snow bunny," perfectly in the Winter 2011/2012 issue of V Magazine, Issue #74, "The Model Issue." She is expertly styled by Carlyne Cref de Dudzeele and is cleverly photographed by Sebastian Faena wearing designer labels such as Christian Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Blugirl, Versace and Jil Sander. Her face shows off her fabulous sun-kissed skin as well as the beautiful top-notch cosmetics provided by NARS Cosmetics. This fashion editorial is truly a winner! Seems to me that Candice Swanepoel can do no wrong especially in the luxury ski-resort world of trophy wives and barbie dolls. She delivers on the runway, in the magazines and pretty much in everything that she is featured in just like a shining star and in this case, like the perfect gleaming snow bunny.

Valentino Aphrodite Handbag FW 2011 (modeled by Emanuela de Paula for Neiman Marcus)



Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure and procreation. Her Roman equivalent is the goddess Venus. Interestingly enough, goddess Emanuela de Paula was chosen to model this Valentino Aphrodite Handbag for Neiman Marcus for the Fall/Winter 2011 season. And, she is truly (in my opinion) the epitome of the aphrodite definition. The bag is quite the bag to have this season and comes in a variety of looks retailing for $2,895. To be more specific, the Aphrodite bag that Emanuela is modeling has sold out at Neiman Marcus (so I guess the ad campaign was highly successful!) but many other prints and slightly varied styles of it can still be purchased at the same price point. This bag makes the perfect signature luxury bag. And, Emanuela deserves another congrats from me for landing yet another advertising feature.
