Candice Swanepoel kept her ''spirits high'' by listening to electronic dance music on a shoot.

The Victoria's Secret Angel gushed about her latest Bottletop collection shoot, which involved her posing for pictures in Brazil, and insists listening to the DJ helped her to maintain her energy.

She told ''The shoot was wonderful. The location was a stunning contemporary beach house designed by one of Bahia's leading architects with lots of glass walls and light, which is perfect for shooting.

''We were lucky that the sun shone! We had a DJ playing electronic dance music all afternoon to keep our energy and spirits high and I think you can tell we had a great time by the quality of the images.''

Candice gushed about Bottletop, which is a fashion company and registered charity which seeks to empower young people and uses music, art and fashion to increase awareness of sexual health.

The blonde beauty is currently modelling the brand's bag collection, which has been designed by Narciso Rodriguez, and created by locals who've been trained by leatherwork experts from around the world.

Candice added: ''The time we spent at the Bottletop atelier was really special. It was amazing to meet the team and see the incredible work that is being done there.

''They work closely with the design team in Paris to create the new styles each season. The level of detail is stunning!

''The atelier is set up in one of Brazil's toughest neighbourhoods and the training programme has been life changing for those people who have taken part. It's an amazing project and I'm excited to watch it grow.''
