Victoria’s Secret Angel and recent campaign favorite Candice Swanepoel is the new face of the Versace Eyewear Fall 2011 ad campaign. The blond beauty seems to have captured the heart of Donatella Versace since she tapped the gorgeous 22-year-old model, who also happens to be the face of a Tom Ford Fall 2011 campaign, to model the legendary Italian fashion house’s eyewear collection.

Before Fall 2011, Swanepoel had posed for campaigns for Diesel, Guess?, Topshop and True Religion, as well as her permanent gig of being a world-famous Victoria’s Secret Angel. Suddenly, she has entered the world of high fashion and top designers are welcoming her with open arms.

The Versace Eyewear Fall 2011 campaign was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, or otherwise known in the high fashion world as Mert & Marcus. The South African beauty shows no signs of slowing down in her newly acclaimed modeling gigs for luxurious design houses. Stats for Sultry Sunglasses Ads Trending: Older & Mild
