Candice Swanepoel is inspired by Farah Fawcett.

The Victoria's Secret model loves the legendary actress' retro look and only purchases high waisted jeans in an attempt to replicate her iconic style.

The 26-year-old beauty - who is a huge fan of '70s and '80s style - was also inspired by her mother's fashion sense growing up and enjoys turning to picture-sharing site Instagram for vintage style ideas.

She said: ''Most of my style inspiration comes from the '70s and the '80s. There's this Instagram account called '70s Babes that I love to reference and repost on my own account. All of my jeans are high waisted because I think they make me look like Farrah Fawcett - I'll try to feather my hair, too. But I also love the big curls of the '80s.''

When it comes to cosmetics, Candice prefers minimal make up but insists her eyebrows must be in perfect shape at all times.

She said: ''I don't wear a ton of makeup when I'm not working, but beautiful eyebrows are really important. You can have nothing on as long as your eyebrow shape is good.''

But when it comes to a festival or night out, she enjoys creating a ''really dramatic eye'' using lashings of mascara.

She told Into The Gloss: ''If I go to a festival or something, I really go for it and create a really dramatic eye. Maxfactor mascara is the best for that. I'll apply it really thick so it looks like I'm wearing false eyelashes. I swear by that stuff.''
