Because it was only a matter of time Candice Swanepoel has been chosen to wear the multi-million dollar Fantasy Bra during the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Two years ago Miranda Kerr was chosen to wear the bra and then it was worth approximately $2.5 million. In 2013, the price tag has gone up considerably. This year’s Fantasy Bra has raised he bar to a new level of expense as it is reportedly worth somewhere around $10 million. It is made up of 4,200 gemstones including a very expensive and very large ruby hanging from the center.
“They had to mold my body to be able to make [the bra], and I was really excited,” Swanepoel tells PEOPLE. “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.”
She also says that the bra comes with two bodyguards and they have to wear gloves just to put it on her. Just one question: how does one get the job of placing this bra on Candice? I’d like to submit my resume.
The 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs on December 10, 10/9C on CBS.
