Victoria's Secret model Candice Swanepoel is the latest angel to don the company's $10 million USD (6,200,000 British pounds) fantasy bra.

This year the bra features a 52 karat pear shaped ruby and a matching belt set in 18 karat gold, encrusted with diamonds and blue and yellow sapphires.

Swanepoel said when she got the call about modeling the bra she was thrilled.

SOUNDBITE: Candice Swanepoel, model, saying (English):

"It's such an honor to be chosen to wear it. But it is also a big responsibility. So I was excited, but a little nervous at the same time. I got the call about six months ago because they had to do a mold of my body to do it."

And although it fits like a glove, carrying around all that bling takes work.

SOUNDBITE: Candice Swanepoel, model, saying (English):

"It's a little bit heavy, but because it's molded on to me it fits like a glove. It's kind of, it holds itself. I do feel a little more naked because it is kind of like a cage. But it's exquisite."

The South African model will wear the bra on the runway during Victoria's Secret annual Fashion Show.
