Super-Skinny Victoria's Secret Model: 'I’m Healthy, Happy'

Mark Sullivan/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- In response to criticism that she looked alarmingly thin at a recent photo shoot, Victoria's Secret model Candice Swanepoel says she is not unhealthy.

"I am healthy and happy," Swanepoel told the New York Daily News through her representative. "I'm heartened to know how much everyone cares about me, but in this case everything is normal and good."

Swanepoel, a 22-year-old South African, revealed her skinny frame while modeling the lingerie line's new swimwear at Los Angeles' Mondrian Hotel. With stick thin legs and a hollowed stomach, the once-curvy model stood out among her fellow Victoria's Secret angels.

Swanepoel looked significantly skinnier than in photos just two months ago, when she was the face of the company's Valentine's Day campaign.

In November, during New York fashion week, Swanepoel told ABC News that she was having trouble keeping weight on.

"This year my problem has been more putting the weight on and getting muscle on because it's been really busy," she said. "I've been traveling around like crazy. I get skinnier if I'm very busy. I've been eating steak and everything, so I'm actually looking forward to eating some lighter food after this."

Last year, during a pre-Valentine's Day event, Swanepoel said food was the way to her heart.

"Usually, my boyfriend cooks for me, which I really love," Swanepoel said, adding that pasta always wins points in her book. "It's really sexy."

Victoria's Secret Model: Alarmingly Thin?

Mark Sullivan/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Victoria's Secret model Candice Swanepoel has made headlines after appearing alarmingly thin during a recent photo shoot.

The entertainment website Hollywood Life called her "scarily, skeletally, stick-thin," adding, "That's not how the human body is meant to look."

Swanepoel revealed her skinny frame while modeling the lingerie line's new swimwear at Los Angeles' Mondrian Hotel. With stick-thin legs and a hollowed stomach, the once-curvy model stood out among her fellow Victoria's Secret angels. The 22-year-old South African looked significantly skinnier than she did in photos just two months ago, when she was the face of the company's Valentine's Day campaign.

In November, during New York's fashion week, Swanepoel told ABC News that she was having trouble keeping weight on.

"This year my problem has been more putting the weight on and getting muscle on because it's been really busy," she said. "I've been traveling around like crazy. I get skinnier if I'm very busy. I've been eating steak and everything, so I'm actually looking forward to eating some lighter food after this."

Last year, during a pre-Valentine's Day event, Swanepoel said food was the way to her heart.

"Usually my boyfriend cooks for me, which I really love," Swanepoel said, adding that pasta always wins points in her book. "It's really sexy."

Swanepoel also reflects what appears to be a shift by the fashion line away from its traditionally curvy models, like Tyra Banks, Claudia Schiffer, Gisele Bundchen and Heidi Klum, toward super-slim girls like Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio.
