You could easily assume a Victoria’s Secret Angel wants lingerie for Valentine’s Day, but that's not the case with Candice Swanepoel. The South African model’s love doesn’t cost a thing: “Just give me a lot of attention, and maybe something nice,” she told us when we caught up with her at the launch party for her denim collaboration with Mother (available now on motherdenim.com). “I’m the worst romantic ever,” she continued. “I’m not good at cheesy gifts. I’m like, ‘No heart necklaces, none of that.’ I’m actually very easy to please.” That said, lingerie is a great option if that’s more your style, she added, but make sure you are comfortable. “There are a lot of expectations on Valentine’s Day, so just do what makes you feel sexy,” she said. “Wear whatever’s good for your body. Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be forced.”
