Throwbacks are always fun but this one has a wow factor that is hard to beat. In 2013, South African supermodel Candice Swanepoel walked the ramp for Victoria's Secret in a crystal-encrusted lingerie set. The diva wore a majestic gemstone-encrusted lingerie set, costing a whopping 10 million dollars (approximately Rs.83 crores), according to reports by CBS News. The lingerie bralette came with a bow and a matching belt and had over 4200 precious crystals including gems like diamonds, sapphires and rubies delicately encrusted in it which made it sparkle like the stars. The red bikini bottom was paired with a matching crystal-encrusted belt. Candice wore a pair of deep red heels as she walked the ramp. She also wore a pair of long white gloves and opted for shimmery rosy makeup with loosely styled wavy tresses as she carried her style effortlessly. When Candice sashayed across the ramp in this royal set back in 2013, she was even guarded by security personnel stationed nearby to protect the expensive gemstones on the set.
Bazaar India shared the throwback video of Candice Swanepoel on their Instagram account. The post read, "In 2013, Candice Swanepoel modelled in this Royal Fantasy Bikini that featured over 4200 precious jewels, including diamonds, rubies, and yellow sapphires, which were placed in 18-carat gold. It also featured a 52-carat ruby as the centrepiece. The bikini was actually guarded by two bodyguards! #BazaarIndia #HarpersBazaarIndia"
In 2017, Lais Ribeiro, a Brazilian model wore another Fantasy Lingerie set which was encrusted with jewels just like Candice Swanepoel. Lais' lingerie set cost around 2 million dollars(approximately Rs.16.5 crores.)
It was indeed an iconic moment and a celebration of a decade as Candice Swanepoel made an incredible fashion statement in the Royal Fantasy bikini set. But it wasn't the most expensive royal-themed bra nevertheless. In 2000, Gisele Bundchen wore a "Red Hot Fantasy Bra" which was worth 20 million dollars (approximately Rs.166 crores)Comments
