A Closer Look at the Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bras

This year, the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show surprised us for the first time with two Angels chosen to model the Fantasy Bras. Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio dazzled in the sapphire, diamond and ruby undergarments, connected with 18 carat gold and have more than 16,000 gemstones in each bra.

Pascal Mouawad designed the Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bras, which feature elaborate armbands, shoulder draperies, garter belt and jeweled waist belts. The luxurious lingerie contains over 16,000 perfect gems of diamonds, rubies and sapphires. The Dream Angels Fantasy Bras were painstakingly handcrafted, and according to E! it took over 1,380 hours to fashion. At $2 million each, these are not Victoria’s Secret’s most expensive Fantasy Bras. Both Heidi Klum (2001) and Giselle Bündchen (2005) wore designs that cost $12.5 million.

"Words can't describe how excited I was when I received a call from Victoria's Secret to let me know that I would be wearing it," Ambrosio said. "It's every model's dream to wear Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra, so when you get chosen, it is very important to do it with elegance and enthusiasm."
