The countdown is on: in less than a week, Candice Swanepoel will strut down the runway of the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show wearing the most expensive Fantasy Bra in almost 10 years. The $10 million — yes, you read that correctly — showstopper, designed by the jewelry brand Mouawad, soared in value from last year's 20-carat floral design and will feature 4,200 precious gems from around the world, including rubies, diamonds, and yellow sapphires.
The lucky Angel will be following in the footsteps of Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Klum, Karolina Kurkova, and most recently Alessandra Ambrosio when she works the design, which centers on a 52-carat teardrop ruby. As we count down to this year's show — it airs Dec. 10 on CBS — see all the sparklers that wowed on runways past, and find out where this bra stacks up in the carat and dollar count.
