Candice Swanepoel Just Debuted A Drastically Different Hairstyle

When it comes to defining the 'Victoria's Secret look' there are a few key Angel traits that come to mind. For instance: bronzed skin, highlighter to the hilt and long bouncy waves. So when one of the VS crew undergoes a major beauty transformation - such as chopping off aforementioned signature hair - we pay attention. 

South African born mother-of-two Candice Swanepoel walked in Fendi's Autumn/Winter 2020 Haute Couture show, debuting a very different hairstyle than we're used to seeing on the signature blonde. At the show, which was staged outside the Colosseum in Rome, Swanepoel rocked a glossy jet-black bob with rounded bangs - the chicest '70s inspired shag with a modern Roman twist.

The shag is set to be huge this season. Case in point? The sheer volume was seen on Fendi's runway. Every other model on the runway (including Kaia Gerber, Cindy Crawford's daughter) wore varying iterations of the same wig—some blonde, some brunette, and others featuring blue or green hues.

Hairstylist extraordinaire Sam McKnight explained the significance behind each unique hair colour, revealing that wigs were each dyed a different "shade of Roman Marble. Greys, pinks, apricots, degrade from lights to darks."

"Matching your hair colour to your outfit is the new black," McKnight wrote on Instagram.
