Candice Swanepoel Scores Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra Honors
Next month the Victoria’s Secret Angels will take to the runway for the annual Victoria’s 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 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.”
“I’ve never worn anything this pricey, and we have to put gloves on when we put it on. It’s 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 it’s a one-time thing. Walking around wearing $10 million does seem to make me a little bit nervous.”
