Showing off her posing prowess for the Land of the Rising Sun, Candice Swanepoel is featured on the cover of the June 2012 issue of Vogue Japan.

The Victoria’s Secret stunner looks gorgeous in a Gucci dress on the front of the magazine, shot by famed photographer Terry Richardson.

And inside, Candice gives the frizzy, curly coif a try, proving that there’s no look that she can’t pull off masterfully.

When asked if she’s made any big plans for the summer, Ms. Swanepoel replied, “Not yet. I usually go to Brazil — I have a place there, so it’s just a no-brainer to go and relax down there. But this year I want to go to a couple of new places: I want to try Thailand, I want to go to Jamaica. We go to Tulum, I don’t know if you’ve ever been there, it’s amazing. It kind of has that Brazil feeling, that very rustic feeling on the beach.”

“I actually stayed in this place last time we went there, it’s kind of a hippie place, no electricity, nothing. You’re just in this hut on the front of the beach. It’s called Uno. After being in New York so much, you really have to go back to basics and teach yourself to relax: No electronics. The first couple of days, you’re like, ‘What should we do? What should we do?’ And then after you learn how to relax again.”
