Cape Town – South African supermodel Candice Swanepoel swept into Cape Town in the early hours of Thursday morning, and the local beauty looked fresh and stunning on arrival.

The 24-year-old babe, who is one of the most sought-after faces and bodies in the fashion business, is in South Africa for two days to shoot two hush-hush campaigns for local retailer Woolworths.

Our insider could not divulge full details of the campaign but did share that it was for the Summer 2013/14 season and would not be a lingerie shoot.

Candice is, of course, a Victoria's Secret Angel whose rise to the top was confirmed by Forbes magazine who named her one of the top-earning models in the world. Not bad for a meisie who was discovered at a Durban flea market at age 15!

Candice landed at Cape Town International at 07:55 on Thursday looking every bit the star in black slimfit pants and a sheer white T-shirt which showed off her white bra underneath.

She flew in via Paris and London on British Airways.

Her mother Eileen met her at the airport and accompanied her famous daughter to her hotel. Candice last saw her parents on her most recent trip home for Christmas last year.

Candice did not speak to any media on arrival and will have her first day in Cape Town off before she gets working on the Woolworths shoot on Friday.

She will then say totsiens to her homeland when she jets off on Saturday night for Paris where she will get straight back into her hectic schedule.
Welcome home, Candice!
