While many of Victoria's Secret bras are built for comfort and support, their $10 million Royal Fantasy Bra is purely for show. Now, meet the lucky supermodel who will be walking this obscenely expensive lingerie down the runway.
Blonde bombshell Candice Swanepoel will be modeling the $10 million bra this year, and she couldn't be more excited. The 24-year-old wrote on her Instagram: "So excited to be wearing the fantasy bra this year in the @victoriassecret fashion show! It was moulded on my body months ago, finally I can let the secret out. Thank you #victoriassecret."
"I've never worn anything this pricey, and we have to put gloves on when we put it on," the supermodel 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!"
Victoria's Secret also shared an Instagram photo of the jewel-encrusted bra, designed by jeweler Mouawad, writing: "4200 gemstones. 1 royal fantasy. Your 1st look at this year's #VSFantasyBra, worn by @angelcandices. See it on the runway at the #VSFashionShow, Dec. 10 at 10/9c on CBS."
Swanepoel proceeds a slew of other supermodels to have donned a million-dollar VS bra. Miranda Kerr, Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Adriana Lima and many more have also rocked ornate lingerie for the big runway show.
What do you think of the Royal Fantasy Bra? Is it worth $10 million?
