2013 Victoria's Secret $10 Million 'Fantasy Bra': Candice Swanepoel

The Victoria's Secret $10 million dollar - it's the biggest news for the global lingerie giant each year. Who will wear it?

The brand announced this week it would be Victoria's Secret 'angel' and annual runway show regular Candice Swanepoel. Here she is modelling the jewelled bra:


Worn by Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum and Alessandra Ambrosio before her, it's the centrepiece for the VS fashion show each year.

And this year, it will be one of the most expensive ever made — thanks in part to the enormous ruby dangling from the centre.

“They had to mold my body to be able to make [the bra], and I was really excited,” Swanepoel tells (US) People magazine. “I tried to imagine after they’d done the mold, how would they make it, how it would look. My imagination didn’t do it justice. My favorite part is this beautiful 52-carat pear-shaped ruby. Every part of it is exquisite.”

Renowned jeweller Mouawad has hand-set more than 4,200 precious stones (including rubies, diamonds and yellow sapphires) in 18-karat gold to create the fantasy bra and matching belt. 

“I’ve never worn anything this pricey, and we have to put gloves on when we put it on,” Swanepoel says. “It’s kind of a big ordeal. The bra comes with two bodyguards and we have to handle it with a lot of care!”

“Definitely being the Fantasy Bra model is more nerve-wracking [than shooting swim] because it’s a one-time thing,” she says. “Walking around wearing $10 million does seem to make me a little bit nervous.”
