This year, 23-year-old Candice Swanepoel will do the top honors of donning the Royal Fantasy Bra by Victoria's Secret, reports People on Oct. 16. This year the coveted bra is worth a staggering $10 million.
Designed by the famous jeweler, Mouawad, the Royal Fantasy bra and the matching belt will feature 4,200 precious gems from around the world including rubies, diamonds, and yellow sapphires. Handset in 18-carat gold, it will also showcase a 52-carat, pear-shaped ruby in the center.
The sexy model will strut wearing the Fantasy Bra at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which will be aired on Dec. 10 on CBS.
While the Victoria's Secret Angel is fascinated by the exquisite creation, she told People that her favorite part is the "beautiful 52-carat pear-shaped ruby."
"I’ve never worn anything this pricey, and we have to put gloves on when we put it on. It’s kind of a big ordeal. The bra comes with two bodyguards and we have to handle it with a lot of care," Swanepoel said.
Swanepoel feels that this once-in-a-lifetime experience is surely nerve-wracking. “Definitely being the Fantasy Bra model is more nerve-wracking [than shooting swim] because it’s a one-time thing,” she adds. “Walking around wearing $10 million does seem to make me a little bit nervous.”
