Next month the Victorias Secret Angels will take to the runway for the annual Victorias Secret Fashion Show, and Candice Swanepoel will shine a little brighter than the rest.
The 24-year-old South African supermodel was named as the lucky lady who will wear the $10 million Fantasy Bra, following in the footsteps of Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum, and Alessandra Ambrosio.
Candice told People, They had to mold my body to be able to make [the bra], and I was really excited. I tried to imagine after theyd done the mold, how would they make it, how it would look. My imagination didnt do it justice. My favorite part is this beautiful 52-carat pear-shaped ruby. Every part of it is exquisite.
Ive never worn anything this pricey, and we have to put gloves on when we put it on. Its kind of a big ordeal. The bra comes with two bodyguards and we have to handle it with a lot of care!
Ms. Swanepoel added, Definitely being the Fantasy Bra model is more nerve-wracking [than shooting swim] because its a one-time thing. Walking around wearing $10 million does seem to make me a little bit nervous.
