Candice Swanepoel steps outside of her comfort zone for a topless shoot (PICTURES)

November 23, 2013 1 min read

Candice Swanepoel has referred to herself as an introvert, but she seems to be bursting with confidence in her latest photo-shoot.  The South African model strips off for a series of playful black and white shots taken by photographer Matt Jones for the latest issue of i-D Magazine.  Candice cheerfully shows off her  figure in images that have been artfully illustrated by New York based artist Brian Donnelly, aka KAWS.

Looking good: South African model Candice Swanepoel shows off her body in a new photo-shoot for the latest issue of i-D Magazine

The model was first spotted by a talent scout while she shopped in a flea market in Durban at age 15, and was then catapulted from her rural town of Moori River to the most prestigious catwalks around the world.

Protecting her modesty: Candice, 25, covers her assets with a skateboard while an animated snake, drawn by artist KAWS, looks on appreciatively   Even though she's showing some skin, it's so refreshing to see a woman celebrating her body in a playful way rather than a sexual way. Sure tons of men are going to be drooling all over her stunning figure (just as they always are), but having this level of body-confidence doesn't come easy to any woman - she's just had a bit more practice. Personally I find these images incredibly tasteful and creative. As much as I envy the Angels (and their adorable undergarments), it's great to see one of them take on another role asides from sultry temptress. The female form has always been a central part of art. And though the images that grace the VS catalogues may be beautiful, I don't know that I would define them as art. This is. What do you think of this photo shoot? Is it empowering or just unnecessary?
