She may have opened up about her 'stage fright' just days before her Victoria's Secret Fashion Show outing. But on show day in Manhattan on Wednesday, Candice Swanepoel looked like a million dollars -- and then some. The 25-year-old showed off her incredible body as she sauntered confidently along the runway wearing the $10 million Fantasy Bra.

Following in the footsteps of Miranda Kerr, Tyra Banks, Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima and Claudia Schiffer, Candice was picked to showcase the lingerie brand's multi-million dollar bra.

This year's design, titled 'The Royal', was designed by Swiss-based jeweler, Mouawad. The South African native wore white gloves and red velvet heels as she walked the catwalk during the show, which is invite-only but will be broadcast globally on December 10. Candice may have breathed a sigh of relief when she was later able to remove the expensive garment and replace it with an equally stunning but far less pricey cream coloured lace and velvet ensemble.

The bra -- nicknamed 'The Royal' -- is adorned with over 4,200 precious gems from around the world including rubies, diamonds, and yellow sapphires in the bra. It also comes with matching pink frilly briefs and a gold belt, worn beautifull by Candice.

Look at the Brits on that!

Whilst the Victoria's Secret Angels from around the world wowed on the catwalk on Wednesday, there was certainly a standout performance from the British models on show.

Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn, and Lily Donaldson, all worked their magic as they represented the UK in their own distinct way. During the 'British Invasion' section of the show -- that saw Taylor Swift sing in a Union Jack outfit -- the UK models stood out from the crowd.

'Hollywood Star' Jennifer Hudson

Since being eliminated from American Idol in 2004, she has snagged herself an Oscar, a Grammy and a Golden Globe award. And Jennifer Hudson couldn't help getting emotional as she received a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame on Wednesday.

The 32-year-old was seen wiping her eyes as she showed off her legs in an elegant white dress during the ceremony, where she was joined by her husband David Otunga and son David Otunga Jr.

The star -- who dropped more than 80lbs on Weight Watchers since giving birth to her son in August 2009 -- looked the height of glamour in a short dress that showcased her slender legs to perfection.

The sleeveless frock featured a draped rounded colour and a tie in the back. Jennifer wore her new pixie cut in a side parting and opted for a smokey eye and nude lips.
