Victoria's Secret Angels Miranda Kerr and Candice Swanepoel visited the Thompson Hotel in Beverly Hills Thursday to celebrate the launch of the brand's new swimwear collection. Kerr circled the pool in a hot pink bikini with white crochet cover up while Swanepoel lounged in a neon turquise two piece and a nude cover-up.
The new collection features more than 375 styles, including bright neon colors, vibrant prints and a variety of fits such as the halter, bandeau and classic triangle bikini. Victoria's Secret also launched the Gorgeous Swim collection, inspired by the fit of the Gorgeous bra.
"The swimsuit gives you a little bit of an extra lift," said Kerr as she held up a neon yellow and white flower-embellished Gorgeous push-up halter top. "It's been a really big bestseller so that's why we turned it into a swimsuit."
Victoria's Secret also launched a bikini mixer tool on its website that allows users to mix and match styles, colors and patterns for a custom swimsuit.
"The swimwear was inspired by Brazil so there are a lot of beautiful colors, neons, embellishments and there really is a style for everyone no matter your size, your skin tone, if you're more flirty -- there really is something for everyone," said Kerr, who also mentioned that her favorite cut was the bandeau top.
The suits went on sale Wednesday.
