Candice Swanepoel Strips Down for Victoria’s Secret Swim

“I love rolling around in the sand and sea, feeling all of the elements and appreciating my surroundings. I feel sexier modeling swimwear,” model Candice Swanepoel tells PEOPLE. “Let’s just say shooting swim is the best part of being an Victoria’s Secret Angel for me.”

Swanepoel does a sexy beachfront striptease in the commercial above to promote the brand’s first 2012 swim catalog, in mailboxes Friday. The South African stunner, shot in the sun on the exotic islands of Bora Bora, wears (er, doesn’t wear) a suit inspired by Brazil’s beaches and bombshells — a theme seen throughout this year’s VS swimsuits and promotional items.

Drew Barrymore is engaged – check out her gorgeous engagement ring!

Drew Barrymore is engaged! The actress chose well, too, considering her fiance is an art consultant! He has excellent taste! Will Kopelman chose a ring with a 4-carat, colorless radiant-cut diamond sitting on a diamond covered band. The gorgeous ring was designed by Graff Diamonds, though “Kopelman picked it out” according to PEOPLE.

Kopelman and Barrymore have been linked romantically since February of last year. The couple got engaged in Sun Valley, Idaho, while vacationing over the holidays.

This will be the third walk down the aisle for Barrymore, who was married to Tom Green in 2001 and to Jeremy Thomas briefly in 1994.  

What do you think of her ring?

Dior signs Mila Kunis!!

Dior lands another ‘Black Swan’ actress! Last year Natalie Portman was seen in Miss Dior Cherie fragrance ads, and were a huge success!  Now, Natalie’s ‘Black Swan’ costar Mila Kunis has also signed on to join the label’s list of A-List models!

The softly-lit campaign for the label’s spring 2012 collection sees the Ukraine-born actress, 28, dressed in black, posing with the new Miss Dior handbag.

It is a major coup for a girl who describes herself as a ‘jeans and T-shirt’ type.

Miss Kunis told WWD: ‘I’m honestly just learning about fashion… In my daily life, I don’t wear the most feminine pieces. But I love to feel feminine when I’m on the red carpet.’

Indeed, it seems we can expect to see her wearing much more of the label at premieres and during the coming awards season.

‘I find that Dior is an incredibly grounded house,’ she continued. ‘I always thought what Dior does is so sophisticated, feminine and beautiful.’

The feeling is mutual too – bosses at Dior are besotted with the rising star, who last year starred alongside Justin Timberlake in Friends With Benefits.

Delphine Arnault, deputy general manager at Dior, told WWD: ‘Mila Kunis is a very talented young actress… Her performance in Black Swan was remarkable. She is very gifted.’

Explaining why Dior was looking to Hollywood for its campaigns, she added: Christian Dior designed several costumes for the movies and maintained personal relationships with such actresses as Marlene Dietrich, Rita Hayworth, Ava Gardner, Sophia Loren, Marilyn Monroe, Liz Taylor and Grace Kelly.

‘It is thus only natural for the house of Dior to continue to develop a very specific and personal relationship with actresses.’

Miss Kunis, who admits posing for Dior ‘wasn’t the hardest thing to do’, joins an illustrious line-up of house models for Dior.

As well as Miss Portman, the names count A-listers Marion Cotillard, Jude Law and Charlize Theron.

The campaign will launch in China later this month, appearing in U.S. titles from the end of January.

I think Mila is gorgeous. She has such a sensual beauty. Perfect fit for Dior if you ask me!
