South African supermodel Candice Swanepoel will have the honor of wearing the $10 million, jewel-encrusted “Royal Fantasy Bra” at this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

The bra-and-belt combination designed by Mouawad features 4,200 precious gems, including intricate patterns of diamonds, sapphires and rubies meticulously set in 18-karat yellow gold. The centerpiece of the bra is a stunning 52-carat pear-shaped ruby dangling from a diamond bow.

“It’s a substantial bra, but it’s not terribly heavy,” the 24-year-old Swanepoel told ELLE.com. “It was created from a mold of my body, so it’s quite comfortable… I think [wearing] it will actually give me more confidence! Who wouldn’t have a stronger walk with a $10 million bra?”

This is Swanepoel’s first time wearing the coveted bra, which is always presented as the final look at Victoria’s Secret’s runway shows. This year’s installment will be televised internationally on December 10.

Victoria’s Secret has been unveiling extraordinary fantasy bras since 1996, when supermodel Claudia Schiffer sported the “Million Dollar Bra.” Swanepoel joins a veritable Hall of Fame of internationally acclaimed models who have worn the prized lingerie.

They’ve included Alessandra Ambrosio (who sported the $2.5 million Floral Fantasy Bra last year), Tyra Banks, Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Klum, Miranda Kerr, Adriana Lima and Claudia Schiffer.

Despite its $10 million price tag, the “Royal Fantasy Bra” is not the priciest fantasy bra of all time. That designation goes to the $20 million “Red Hot Fantasy Bra,” a jeweled bra-and-panty set worn by Gisele Bündchen in 2000.

Even though every Victoria’s Secret fantasy bra has been for sale, not a single one has been purchased. Typically, each is dismantled, stone by stone, at the end of the season.

 

Just two weeks after confirming her secret engagement to Ukrainian heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko, actress Hayden Panettiere told E! News that she took a lead role in designing her dazzling 6-carat emerald-cut diamond engagement ring. Sporting a distinctive split-shank setting and a diamond-pavé band, the ring is estimated to be worth $500,000.

“I designed it with Montblanc,” she said. “They made me this amazing book where they did a bunch of sketches. I told them my idea over time, and tweaking things here and there, it came to fruition.”

After a bit of prodding on the October 9 edition of LIVE With Kelly and Michael, the petite five-foot-one-inch Nashville star finally admitted that she and her hulking six-foot-six-inch boyfriend were engaged.

“There’s a very large diamond ring on your ring finger,” noticed co-host Kelly Ripa. “I’m not sure if you want to announce anything. Does that signify anything? Is that a promise of something?”

“It might be,” Panettiere said coyly, with a giant snake draped over her shoulders. “I think it speaks for itself.”

The 37-year-old boxer and the 24-year-old starlet met at a charity event and starting dating in 2009. They broke up in 2011, but rekindled their romance this past spring. “It’s like the 2.0 version,” Panettiere told Glamour magazine. It’s believed the couple has been unofficially engaged since March.

Klitschko retained his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles on October 5 by outpointing previously undefeated Alexander Povetkin.

The pair has no wedding plans yet, due to Panettiere’s busy schedule. The second season of Nashville currently airs Wednesday nights on ABC.
