The bikini she showcased was released last month as part of the brand’s Resort 23 collection, shortly before her birthday.
The model and businesswoman received love when her close friends posted photos and birthday wishes on social media.
One of them was fellow supermodel Joan Smalls.
The 2023 collection includes multiple bikinis, dresses, bathing suits and cover-ups.

After years of being one of Victoria’s Secret top models and graced magazine covers with the likes of Vogue, Swanepoel decided to launch her own swimwear brand.
The model teamed up with Daniela Manfredi, who spent eight years as Senior Vice President and Creative Director at Victoria’s Secret.
Swanepoel confessed that her passion came to fruition after simply serving as a creative outlet.

‘I like photography and image and beauty in general. I had been swimming and shooting for so many years, and to keep my mind working during photo shoots, I analyzed the product,” she told Forbes in 2019.
Swanepoel continued to explain that she took a break from modeling when she became a new mom in 2016. She then decided to pursue her fashion design and entrepreneurial passions.
The South African beauty shares two children – Anaca, 6, and Ariel, 4 – with her ex-fiancé, Brazilian model Hermann Nicoli.

The then couple welcomed their first son, Anaca, in October 2016. Their son’s name is a tribute to Nicoli’s Brazilian roots and is Brazilian slang for the word “bird.” Just a year later, in December 2017, the couple had their second son Ariel.
Swanepoel was discovered in 2003 by a talent scout at a local South African flea market. Shortly after, she moved to Europe to pursue a modeling career. There, the then 17-year-old model met 40-year-old Nicoli in Paris.
Swanepoel revealed that she almost gave up modeling because she felt so lonely in the industry and working in Europe. She confessed: “Every day I worked with different people who spoke different languages, so I was never able to form relationships. I just wanted to go home.’

Fortunately, she never gave up. In 2010, the model became a Victoria’s Secret Angel and walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show every year.
The couple got engaged in 2015. After 14 years together, they ended their relationship without tying the knot.
Recently, the top model and businesswoman Tropic of C teamed up with creative studio Love Want and covered their magazine, photographed by Paola Kudacki.
This was after he was rumored to have dated rapper Kanye West, who was previously married to Kim Kardashian, in early September.
