Candice Swanepoel has been chosen to wear Victoria’s Secret’s $10 million Fantasy Bra this year at the annual fashion show. The bra is designed by jeweler Mouawad.
The bra has a 52-carat ruby that hangs in the middle and it’s 18-carat-gold. Swanepoel will wear the bra in the 2013 Victoria's Secret Dreams & Fantasies Catalogue as well as the fashion show in December.
Swanepoel, 23, is following in the foosteps of Heidi Klum, Miranda Kerr, Tyra Banks, Gisele Bündchen, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima and Claudia Schiffer, who wore the first one in 1996.
“They had to make a mold of my body to be able to make [the bra], I was really excited,” Swanepoel told People.
She added, “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.”
Daily Mail notes Swanepoel even said the bra has two bodyguards that come with it, so it’s a “big ordeal.”
