Candice Swanepoel just scored a major three-peat.

The South African beauty is gracing the cover of the just-released Victoria’s Secret Swim 2013 catalog; she was also featured front-and-center in the 2011 and 2012 editions.

Showing off her bronzed skin and eye-catching cleavage, Swanepoel poses along the crystal-blue waters of St.Bart’s as she goes from cute (in a strapless baby pink two-piece) to fierce (in a plunging leopard number).

It’s not the first look fans have had at Swanepoel’s tropic adventure: in December, she gave a sneak peek by tweeting behind-the-scenes Instagram snaps of the photo shoot.

Using the hashtag “eternalsummer,” the 24-year-old showed she wasn’t taking her time on the exotic island for granted.

On Dec. 13 she tweeted, “Woke Up in st. Bart’s this morning. Thankful x”

The Caribbean trip was the perfect way to cap off a super-successful year: In 2012, Swanepoel came in 10th on Forbes list of top-earning models. She raked in some $3 million between 2010 and 2011— not bad considering she only began her Victoria’s Secret career in 2007.
