Diamonds Are ‘The Girls’ Best Friend: Victoria’s Secret’s $2.5 Million Bra
Alessandra Ambrosio is officially the next Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra model for 2012. The top model is poised to sashay in the $2.5 million Fantasy Bra custom designed by London Jewelers of Long Island on Dec. 4. With floral motifs, the dazzling brassiere has been crafted with amethysts, rubies, and sapphires as well as white, pink, and yellow diamonds, all encrusted in 18-carat rose and yellow gold.
The showstopper is the blossom that sparkles with a 20-carat white diamond at its center. The belt that brings this look together showcases 5,200 shimmering rocks, hand-picked out of 15,000 precious stones.
Ambrosio and fellow angels Victoria’s Secrets angels Gisele Bundchen, Claudia Schiffer [inaugural Fantasy Bra wearer], Tyra Banks, Selita Ebanks and others have had the high honor of walking down the coveted catwalk donning the luxurious lingerie.
