For the first time ever, Victoria's Secret has created two stunning versions of its infamous Fantasy Bra...
Victoria's Secret's first-ever fashion show on British soil is on the fast approach and there has already been massive speculation over who will walk, who will perform and who will be initiated to the VS Angel gang come the event on December the 6th.
While most of the catwalk extravaganza's details are being kept very hush-hush, the brand has just revealed some major news about one of the biggest aspects of its show; the Fantasy Bra.
If you're not familiar with the piece, it's undoubtedly the shows spotlight item. The Fantasy Bra, which was first introduced by the brand back in 1996 when it was created to front the cover of the VS Christmas brochure. Since it's not-so-humble beginnings, the bra has become the most highly-anticipated reveal of the show.
Adorned with precious stones and laced with gold, the most expensive Fantasy Bra to date - which was worn by Gisele Bundchen in the lingerie label's 2000 catalogue - was valued at an eye-watering $15 million (or £9.4 million if you prefer...). Yep, a significant margin from the t-shirt bras we sport day-in, day-out. It was the year after this that the Fantasy Bra was introduced into the underwear mecca's annual show.
However, for this year's event, Victoria's Secret announced that it has created TWO Fantasy Bras that are set to be the evening's show-stoppers.
And, who better to model them than two of the most seasoned VS Angels to date; Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima.
The dynamic duo will join super-forces on the catwalk to strut their stuff in their respective bras, each worth a cool $2 million (£1.25million).
Speaking of the designs, the brand revealed that they were each made by Mouawad jewellers using 16,000 rubies, diamonds and sapphires, all of which were strung together with 18 karat gold. The ornate ensembles took the designers more than 1,380 hours to make and, needless to say, aren't the lightest of garments to flaunt. Better start working on those abs ladies...
Just kidding; they were practically born to do this!
We don't know about you but we can't wait to see how this show pans out. Bring on December!
