Victoria's Secret Model Candice Swanepoel's

Victoria's Secret models are hailed for their sleek physiques, but underwear model Candice Swanepoel's scary-skinny new look is fueling rumors that the South African beauty may be anorexic.

On March 30, 2011, Candice, 22, and fellow Victoria's Secret beauties Adriana Lima, 29, and Alessandra Ambrosio, 29, modeled the VS's new line of swimswear at the Mondrian Hotel.

Eating Disorders Rampant In Modeling

While the 5'10" Swanepoel has always been thin, her stick-like legs and emaciated frame were a dramatic change from a few months ago, when she sported a healthier body at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

Candace, whose fitness routine includes working out with a trainer 3 times a week and taking ballet classes, looked noticeably thinner around her jawline, torso and legs.

Swanepoel, whose career is skyrocketing, recently landed the cover of the Victoria's Secret 2011 swimsuit catalogue.

The fashion industry has come under fire in recent years for encouraging what some call an unrealistically skinny standard of beauty. In November 2010, Isabelle Caro, an ex-model who suffered from anorexia, died at the age of 28 weighing just 68 pounds.

Sadly, anorexia and its sister eating disorder, bulimia, are rampant in the modeling and acting professions, but also prevalent among young girls. Experts say between 5% and 20% of people who develop anorexia eventually die from it.
