South African supermodel Candice Swanepoel did not appear nervous strutting in a $10 million Royal Fantasy Bra at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show on Wednesday in New York City.

The bra shimmered with 4,200 precious gems, which included rubies, diamonds, and yellow sapphires, Us Weekly reported.

The Mouawad-designed piece was complete with a bow and matching belt. The bra's stones were set in 18-carat gold with a large 52-carat pear-shaped ruby that dangles at the center.

The "Fantasy Bras" have become a tradition at the Victoria's Secret fashion shows. Models wearing versions of it include Miranda Kerr in 2011, Gisele Bundchen in 2000 and 2005, and Heidi Klum in 1991, 2001, and 2003.

The most expensive Fantasy Bra, the Red Hot Fantasy Bra, cost $20 million and was worn by Bundchen in 2000.

"I ramp up my workouts and I cut back on stuff that's not good for me," Swanepoel told Us Weekly on how she prepared for the fashion show. "I work out like five times a week for an hour or two each time for the month before the show."

Swanepoel, 25, told the magazine that she did "a lot of green juices and green tea" for her diet before the show.

The 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show will air on CBS on Dec. 10.
