It’s the first time the 24-year-old model has been asked to wear the specialty bra. And, it’s not hard to see why.
Her latest photos for the lingerie fashion brand are super sensual. She’s featured in a dozen different designs both with, and without, a top.
“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!” she told People.
A new specialty bra is displayed every year in the show. This one is called “The Royal Fantasy Bra” because it features more than 4,200 rubies, diamonds and yellow sapphires set in 18-karat gold. A stunning 52-karat ruby is the centerpiece, according to its jeweler, Mouawad.
The first super bra was featured in 1996 and worn by Claudia Schiffer. In sign of the times, it was called the “Million Dollar Miracle Bra.” The cost has been on the rise ever since.
Last year’s fantasy bra, which hugged supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio’s chest, was worth $2.5 million. But Gisele Bundchen wore the most expensive bra in 2000. Called the “Ruby Fantasy Bra,” it was valued at $15 million.
Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Adriana Lima, and Miranda Kerr have all worn specialty bras in previous years.
This year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air on CBS, Dec. 10. Check out Candice’s photos and follow TheImproper on Twitter for the latest fashion news and trends.
