South African model Candace Swanepoel will wear a jewel-covered bra worth over £6 million at the Victoria’s Secret catwalk show, taking place in New York City on November 13th.

Dubbed the Royal Fantasy, the bra and matching knickers are covered with over 4,000 gems, including sapphires and diamonds, affixed to 18-karat gold frames.

Speaking with the press, Swanepoel described the bra as “kind of a big ordeal,” saying it “comes with two bodyguards and we have to handle it with a lot of care” and that wearing it makes her “a little nervous.”

The bra was specially moulded to Swanepoel’s body and features a 52-karat ruby dangling from its centre.
