Victoria’s Secret Finds Natural Beauty in Costa Rica
When it comes to perfect backdrops for exotic photo shoots, Costa Rica is front of mind. That’s why Victoria’s Secret chose Costa Rica to help showcase their Body by Victoria and Swim 2016 styles, colors, and prints. And why they chose Florblanca and Santa Teresa to help deliver the message.
Candice Swanepoel & Behati Prinsloo were the Angels sent to capture the wild, untamed beauty of Costa Rica. Florblanca proved the ideal landscape to bring these two beauties together. With an abundance of rich tropical flora, our signature piñon, rustic surfboard shack, and natural beaches, the Victoria’s Secret photographers and models harnessed the raw pura vida energy of this Costa Rican paradise.
Here is an excerpt of Candace and Behati’s reflections on this photo shoot from Victoria’s Secret Tumblr. And here are some photos from the shoot, both behind the scenes and the final shots.
We absolutely loved hosting this production at Florblanca. This was a crew that truly appreciated their surroundings and made the most of everything we could offer them. We welcome them back along with other publications looking for a tropical, exotic beach location.
