Swanepoel was selected as the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Swim Catalogue cover girl. Also selected to don the “Fantasy Bra” in the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was Swanepoel. Mouawad produced the $10 million bra known as the “Royal Fantasy Bra” (a privately held international jewelry company).

Since the 2005 “Sexy Splendor Fantasy Bra,” which was originally owned by model Gisele Bündchen, the “Royal Fantasy Bra” is the priciest Fantasy Bra.
