Nov. 14 (UPI) -- South African model Candice Swanepoel was the woman chosen to bear one of Victoria's Secret's notorious fantasy bras -- lingerie usually adorned with expensive jewels -- during the underwear company's annual fashion show Wednesday night.

This year's fantasy bra is the most expensive it has been since 2005.

Designer Mouawad crafted the $10 million 18-karat gold bra and belt embellished with a 52-carat ruby, diamonds and sapphires.

The retailer's usual lineup of lingerie models, known as Angels, wore other fantastical creations, though the fantasy bra is often considered the highlight of the night.

Angels Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes and others walked the runway Wednesday, while Taylor Swift and Fall Out Boy performed.
