Victoria's Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel Heading to Seattle
Victoria’s Secret is launching their U.S. of Angels tour on July 10, where? Why, Bellevue Square, of course. Seattle was chosen as the first stop on this swim wear style tour based on the most social media interactions and votes during a campaign held earlier this year via Twitter and Instagram. We’re one of only three cities (including Milwaukee and Orlando) out of the 20 in the running, that the tour is visiting. This is very exciting because with the U.S. of Angels tour comes a visit from an actual Victoria Secrets Angel, namely South African beauty Candice Swanepoel, who has modeled for the company since 2007 and graced three of its swimsuit catalogs.
Swanepoel will be in-store from 5 to 7 p.m. for fan photos (a purchase of $75 or more gets you into the shorter VIP line) and there will be tons of complimentary events all day, including beach-sexy hair styling, summer makeovers, giveaways and experts on hand to help shoppers find their perfect fit amongst the newest, sizzling summer styles.
