The Victoria’s Secret show is one of the biggest fashion catwalks, and this year it will be hosted in Shanghai, China. One of the most exciting segments of the show is the Fantasy Bra. Each year, a different model has the honor of wearing the diamond and gem-encrusted design. This morning, the brand announced that the Brazilian beauty Lais Ribeiro has been selected to walk the runway wearing the coveted treasure. The 24-year-old was one of ten models to earn their ‘wings’ and be named as one of Victoria’s Secret’s new Angels this spring. She has a seven-year-old son named Alexandre, and was born in a world away from the bright lights of the fashion industry, in Teresina, Piauí.
Victoria’s Secret has a strong history of showing insanely expensive bras. Every year they are presenting more and more expensive bejeweled brassiere. The piece that’s appearing this year, titled Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra, is valued at $2 million. The bra is encrusted with diamonds, yellow sapphires, and blue topaz.
Can you believe that it took more than 350 hours to create this stunning item? It was designed by luxury brand Mouawad Jewelry.
Here is a video of Lais Ribeiro’s emotional reaction when they told her she will wear the Fantasy bra.
This will be Ribeiro’s first time wearing the Fantasy Bra, and the model shared her excitement on Instagram:
“I’ve been holding this secret for too long and I am beyond honored to announce that I will be wearing the Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra this year!
I am very happy and thankful for my Victoria’s Secret family for trusting me and all the support from my on family, friends and fans! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! its official!!”
The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, as mentioned before, will take place in Shanghai on Nov. 20 and air on the American TV network CBS on the 28th.
