Candice Swanepool is one of eight Victoria’s Secret model who bare themselves for photographer Russell James in a stunning series of photos. Swanepool’s images are making the rounds on the Internet to tease James’ book, V2.

As the story goes, the models were on Richard Branson’s Necker Island for Victoria’s Secret bikini lines when Russell gather the eight for a far more intimate session.

The result is a fusion of nature and the natural beauty of these women, who look like nymphs or sirens in some mystical fantasy, a tribute to female form and beauty.

Beside Swanepool, photos of model Miranda Kerr have also made the rounds on the Internet.

Her nudes convey an innocence, while Swanepool’s are more surreal and animal-like against a jungle background.

Among other models featured in the book are tawny toned Emanuela de Paula, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, who stars in the upcoming movie “Transformers 3,” and Lindsay Ellington who splashes naked in the water with a sexy innocence.

Jarah Mariano, Erin Heatherton and Brooklyn Decker round out the group.

Decker looks waif-like in the water, while Heatherton is featured with a headband made of leaves.

James focuses on features that make each woman unique, whether its freckle, a tattoo or the soft curves of a breast.
