Candice Huffine is a classic beauty. You probably wouldn’t be surprised to hear she was a pageant queen (or cheerleader!) when she was younger, or that she was featured in the 2015 Pirelli calendar – which was shot by Steven Meisel, a long-time fan of Huffine (he also shot her for her Vogue Italia cover back in 2011).

This year, Candice Huffine also designed a collection for Italian brand Elena Miró – and she made her New York Fashion Week debut. And in between all these career milestones, she’s managed to squeeze in a couple of H&M photo shoots too. 

Read on for Candice Huffine’s Top Model Secrets!

MY FAVOURITE PHOTOGRAPHER IS…

”The fact that I have been able to make a positive impact on people while representing the industry that has embraced me for who I am.  I get to do what I love, every single day.”

MY MOST MEMORABLE SHOOT WAS… 
”My very first one. It was fifteen years ago for a teen catalogue in Europe and although I had NO idea how to pose or what I was doing, I was a model! My first dream had come true. I'll never forget that shoot and I love to think about how far I've come. It's been an incredible ride and I'm excited to continue making unforgettable memories.”
