“It was such an honor to be picked for the cover,” the model tells People. “It is such an iconic catalogue. Before I was a model, I used to see Gisele Bündchen, Tyra Banks and all of those iconic women on it. It is amazing that a little South African girl can get on the cover.”

For this catalogue, Swanepoel and her fellow models hit the beaches of Miami, Turks and Caicos, and were shot by famed photographer Russell James. “Victoria’s Secret is like a big family,” she explains. “The swim shoots are always really fun, and I love being on the beach. I can’t really complain [about my job] — I feel very lucky!”

In addition to the catalog, the company is offering a little something extra with the new Angels & Artists video series, teaming up songs with models in bikinis. The first clip in the series, “Bikinis & Bruno Mars," features Swanepoel and Doutzen Kroes to the tune of Mars’s "Locked Out of Heaven.” Additional videos featuring music and models will be released throughout swimsuit season.
