Candice Swanepoel to model Victoria's Secret's $10 million Fantasy Bra

 Candice Swanepoel will model this year's multimillion dollar Victoria's Secret 'Fantasy Bra' when the lingerie brand's annual show hits the catwalk on November 13.
Last year the honour was bestowed upon fellow Angel Alessandra Ambrosio and the year before that Miranda Kerr, who has recently given up her wings. Other past wearers have included Gisele B√ľndchen and Heidi Klum.

But Candice has got a serious one-up on Kerr and Ambrosio. While their bejewelled creations were both worth an impressive $2.5 million, Swanepoel's is worth four times more, at an astonishing $10 million (approx £6.26 million).
The huge price tag is down to a 52-carat pear-shaped ruby that dangles from the bra's centre, as well as 4,200 other precious stones, including diamonds, yellow sapphires and more rubies, all set in 18-karat gold, which forms the piece's shape and matching belt.

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

News that Swanepoel will be modelling the creation has been kept under wraps for months, so the fitting process had to be done under a veil of secrecy.

"They had to mold my body to be able to make [the bra], and I was really excited," said the South African 24-year-old. "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."
