Candice Swanepoel shows off her winning form in a new lingerie shoot for Victoria’s Secret. Her profile is likely to rise even higher as two top Angels spread their wings and fly away.

Relative newcomer Karlie Kloss and veteran Doutzen Kroes are both reportedly leaving the group of eight models who make up Victoria’s Secret Angels.

Candice began modeling for the brand in 2007 and was drafted into the elite Angels in 2010. That makes her one of the veterans.

She wore $10 million fantasy bra, walked in VS’s signature annual fashion show since 2007, covered the annual swimsuit catalog in 2010 and appeared in countless lingerie and bathing suit campaigns.

Last November, she was tapped to represent Victoria’s Secret’s latest lingerie line, a racy set of stockings, bras and panties aptly dubbed “Scandalous.”

The Angels were founded in 1997 and included supermodels Daniela Peštová, Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Helena Christensen, Karen Mulder, Stephanie Seymour and Gisele Bundchen.

Banks was the last of the original group to leave the brand in 2004. Over the years, other models, such as Karolina Kurkova, Selita Ebanks, Miranda Kerr and Izabel Goulart have rotated in and out of the group.

In addition to Kroes, Kloss, Swanepol, the latest lineup includes Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Lindsay Ellingson and Lily Aldridge.
