Yes, Candice Huffine Was Bitten by a Lion During a Photo Shoot

>Most people would agree that being a fashion model is far from a boring job. However, only a few might also guess that a realistic workplace risk is getting bitten by a wild animal. Candice Huffine can confirm that it is.

>In our latest edition of Fashion Firsts, Huffine recounts a few of her most significant and “first” model moments, including the time she co-starred on set with a baby lion. “We were posing next to each other, and I stood up to part ways after the shot, and then she just got me,” she recalls.

>Animals asides, Huffine also told us about how wild it is to have your face—and lingerie-clad body—splayed across a New York City subway and attend a casting call with the iconic Steven Meisel. It’s certainly not your typical day at the office. Watch above to hear about it all.
