So did you watch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show last night? Did you see all those sexy models walking then turning around and walking again? Those are some of the smartest people around, guys. At least according to Candice Swanepoel.

“Some of the smartest businesswomen I know are models,” Swanepoel told Huffington Post Live. “There are so many beautiful girls around that you need more than that. It’s really about being smart now and turning it into a business.”

And as for those who like to stereotype models as pretty but dim?

“We’ve grown a thick skin,” she laughed. “So it’s OK.”

The natural follow-up question to this would have been, “So how many other businesswomen do you know that are not models?” But I suppose if I were conducting the interview I wouldn’t have asked that either. I would have been too busy trying to conceal the semi I had from just being mere feet away from her. Perhaps that’s why I don’t get more interviews with models.
