Supermodel Candice Swanepoel stars in Swarovski's spring/summer 2013 campaign
Supermodel Candice Swanepoel has taken time from day job as a Victoria's Secret Angel to pose as a seductive action woman for Swarovski's spring/summer 2013 campaign entitled All Things Extraordiary.
Decked out in dazzling diamonds, Candice is as stunning as ever in the set of photos as she lifts a sparkling motorcycle helmet and dumbbells and brandishes bejeweled ski goggles.
With the assistance of famous photographer Nick Knight, the South African born-beauty looks flawlessly sleek and effortlessly confident as she is shot in all her attire.

She sported a matte nude pout and neutral make-up which were perfectly accentuated by sultry cat-eye liner, drawing attention to her turquoise eyes. Her blonde hair was pulled back in a sophisticated bun that showed off her dewy complexion and sculpted cheekbones. And, topped head to toe in diamonds, her nails were even adorned in glitter too.
Speaking about the campaign, an executive member for the company, Nadja Swarovski said: "We wanted the campaign to capture the essence of the cool contemporary woman. Beautiful, healthy and strong, she is in charge, and can compete in any way. She is also fun and kind of humorous. Nick catches her spirit perfectly."
The breathtaking images of the successful supermodel – who came in 10th place on the Forbes 2012 top-earning models list – are superbly juxtaposed with Nick's still lifes that feature freshly cut garden roses in pastel pinks and crystal stone dewdrops. Swarovski called on Candice and Nick – two of the fashion world's biggest names – in order to illustrate how Swarovski crystals can be used throughout the creative and design industries.
Ms Swarovski made their aim clear by stating "this is an overarching corporate campaign celebrating the modern woman and Swarovski crystal as a design ingredient supporting creative expression."
Joining her fellow Victoria's Secret Angel was Lily Donaldson, 25, who lent a hand to the luxury jewellery label, dripping with diamonds in an embellished mask and gloves.
