Source: DM Candice Swanepoel is one of the best loved and most admired Victoria's Secret models. So you'd expect looking good in a bikini to be second nature to her. You'd expect it, and you'd be right... because the 24-year-old worked all the poses as she 'enjoyed' some down time on a Miami beach with her boyfriend, Hermann Nicoli. Wearing a tiny black bikini that flattered her slim 5'9" figure to perfection, the South African was clearly enjoying the Florida sunshine - and the affections of her hunky Brazilian-born model beau. After meeting in Paris, the couple have been officially together since Candice turned 18 and their relationship appears to be stronger than ever. Swanepoel was first spotted by a talent scout while she shopped in a flea market in Durban at age 15, and was then catapulted from her rural town of Moori River to the most prestigious catwalks around the world. She has appeared on the covers of Australian, Greek, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese and Italian Vogue magazines, South African, Romanian, Mexican and Chinese GQ, German and South African, and was 10th on the Forbes top-earning models list in 2012. Along with her countless magazine covers, Candice is one of the key members of the Victoria's Secret flock of angels and this year was named the cover model of the coveted swim catalogue. Three weeks ago, she traveled to St. Barts in the Caribbean for a beach shoot unveiling the company's new summer range of bikinis, but Saturday's fun in the sun was all about play. The hard-working professional was obviously excited to have some well deserved downtime, as on Friday she tweeted: 'Nothing better #peace&quiet #ohmmmm,' along with a photo of her lazing on her bed in jeans and a tank top. With her long blonde hair tied up in a ponytail, Swanepoel made for an elegant sight in the waves as she worked all those tried and tested angles.
