No one ever said that being hot for a living was easy.
Candice Swanepoel, a Victoria's Secret model whose increasingly skinny frame became a topic of contention among fashion insiders earlier this year, defended herself today when asked about the controversy.
"People don't' realize the schedules that models have and the traveling hours, and trying to eat at the right times," the South African beauty, who looked the picture of genetically blessed health today at L.A.'s Grove shopping center for the relaunch of the VS Fantasies body care collection, told E! News.
