Candice Swanepoel, 25, South African supermodel, looked absolutely spectacular donning the $10 million fantasy bejeweled bra at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2013 in New York. Aside from her unquestionably remarkable looks she’s been announced as one of Forbes’ Top 10 earning models of the year.
Candice Swanepoel has quickly made a name for herself among all the beautiful Victoria’s Secret models after being chosen to wear the coveted $10 million “Royal Fantasy Bra”.
This year’s design, titled ‘The Royal’, is designed by Swiss-based jeweler, Mouawad. The Royal Bra is adorned with over 4,200 expensive gems from around the world including 52-carat pear-shaped ruby hangs from the middle of the bra, yellow sapphires and diamonds crafted with 18 karat gold. The matching knickers were made from frilly red lace and paired with a gold belt containing hundreds of gem stones.
She was worried about putting on the precious two-piece and said, “I’ve never worn anything this pricey, and we have to put gloves on when we put it on. I’m kind of praying that everything goes well and I don’t fall, but once I’m on the runway, I get into this zone. I have this feeling of pride. It’s kind of a big ordeal. The bra comes with two bodyguards and we have to handle it with a lot of care!”
She was joined on the catwalk by fellow ‘Angels’ Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosio.
Following the ostentatious lingerie show on Wednesday, Nov. 13, the dazzling model was spotted in a party at TAO Downtown in New York City. She opted for a super revealing low-cut short dress by Alexandre Vauthier to the party.
