[Photos] Sexy VS models and multimillion dollar Fantasy Bras
For the first time in forever, two glamourous Fantasy Bras have been created for the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Show modelled by two renowned sexy models, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima.
At a hefty price-tag of USD 2 million each, the “Dream Angels Fantasy Bras” will be showcased at the upcoming Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show that will be taking place at London this 9 December 2014.
The two Fantasy Bras are created and designed exclusively by multinational jewelry and timepiece company, Mouawad, who sources diamonds and gemstones for their various jewelry collections.
The bras are embedded with a mixture of diamonds, rubies and sapphires, which brings it to its grand total of 16,000 precious stones and is accompanied by arm, leg, stomach and neck pieces which are made of more fine and shiny gemstones, strung together with 18-karat gold.
According to Victoria Secret, it took more than 1,380 hours to piece together the jewelleries and body pieces in order to create the USD 2 million bras.
If you haven’t already known, it’s become sort of a Victoria Secret staple to introduce a new fantasy bra each year in collaboration with huge luxury brands. Here’s our pick of the most amazing diamond studded Fantasy Bras created in the last ten years:-
