It will be all about seeing double at Victoria's Secret fashion show next month.
The lingerie giant unveiled Monday that it will have two Dream Angel Fantasy Bras worth $2 million each to be worn by Brazilian models Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio on the catwalk.
The bras, crafted by Pascal Mouawad, have diamonds, rubies and sapphires sewn together in an elaborate lingerie set that features handcrafted arm bands, shoulder coverings and a glittering, makeshift garter belt all strung together with 18-karat gold.
Lima and Ambrosio were on hand to unveil the bras on “Good Morning America.”
“It’s like a highlight, really, of the show, the fantasy bra, and every year the models, we always get nervous to see who is going to get to wear the bra,” Lima said on “GMA.” “This year it’s really exciting because it’s the first time that we’re going to have two fantasy bras on the fashion show. I’m honored to be here with Alessandra, doing the show, walking the runway together. I cannot wait.”
The bras and accompanying body pieces took more than 1,380 hours – about 57-and-half days – to create.
“It’s definitely, I think, the most watched, most viewed fashion show in the world,” Ambrosio said. “They have all those amazing performances on the runway and we work out really hard for the show so, you know, we might as well have fun in those beautiful Dream Angel Fantasy Bras.”
The Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra model has been a coveted title since model Claudia Schiffer debuted a $1 million piece in 1996.
The most expensive diamond bras were sported by Heidi Klum and Gisele Bündchen and they were worth $12.5 million in 2001 and 2005, respectively.
