If the 80s are the decade fashion forgot, the 90s are the decade fashion can't get enough of.

Supermodel Candice Swanepoel looked more like Cher Horowitz from Clueless than a Victoria's Secert Angel in her retro ensemble.

Her fluffy pink crop top, faded boyfriend jeans and vintage sunglasses combination is a far cry from her usually glamorous appearance on the runway.

The 25-year-old is currently in London with fellow Angel Adriana Lima to promote the lingerie giant's Fashion Show taking place in the UK this year for the first time.

The announcement comes as part of Victoria's Secret's plans for global domination, including 160 store openings last year alone, including one in Dublin airport.


Swanepoel revealed she and her fellow Angels weren't as well known this side of the world before their first UK store opening in late 2012.

"Victoria’s Secret has become such an international brand, and the show has been in Cannes before, we’ve done it in Los Angeles, Miami, and the last couple of years in New York, and I think it’s just natural for us to come to London," she told

"I'm most excited about it being a much bigger event - there will be 2500 people there and we’re used to 1000 - and it's a black tie event so the audience gets to really dress up and enjoy the event as well."


Rihanna and Taylor Swift were just two of the musicians who previously performed at the shows. When asked whether she'd like British pop sensations One Direction to take part in London, Candice couldn't contain her excitement.

"Awh, they’re so cute! I get so emotional when I'm on a plane and I was watching their documentary on the way over here and I was in bits! I was like one of those little teenage girls screaming, like ‘ahhhh!'" she laughed.
