But it wasn't all Prada accessories and glossy shoots for poor old Candice y'know. In an interview with the magazine Candice talks about how she struggled to fit in as a teen. "A year before I got scouted, I would watch a lot of FashionTV," she says. "At school, I got teased because I was so thin and awkward-looking. But the girls on TV looked similar to me."

Looking at these photos we're suffering a sympathy malfunction. And although we take issue with yet another Victoria's Secret model telling woeful tales of being unattractive and bullied as a teen, these photos are surely the ultimate revenge on all those school bullies.
