Gorgeous, leggy and loved by the fashion world, Candice Swanepoel is clearly at the top of the modeling game. But in order for her to stay there, the South African star says brains and beauty are essential to success.

As a favorite among designers including Chanel, Stella McCartney, Donna Karan and Jean Paul Gaultier, the Victoria's Secret Angel is no stranger to the spotlight, but in a recent interview with HuffPo Live, the stunner says you have to be a savvy businesswoman to truly make it in the industry.

"Some of the smartest businesswomen I know are models," she said. "There are so many beautiful girls around that you need more than that. It's really about being smart now and turning it into a business."

Indeed it is!

Just look at pretty powerhouses like Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Miranda Kerr, Cindy Crawford and Kate Moss who have all grown multifranchise empires around their modeling careers and continue to make major moola to this day. 

Now that's the way to work it!

Candice, we can't wait to see what else is in store for you.
