The New Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra Is Finally Unveiled
To paraphrase Michelle Pfeiffer’s character in Scarface, when it comes to the Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra, nothing exceeds like excess. A grand centerpiece of lingerie has been a longstanding tradition at Victoria’s Secret for nearly two decades, with iterations weighing down famous runway walkers like Claudia Schiffer and Gisele Bündchen with all manner of figure-accenting glamorous glitz. And after 685 hours of labor and more than 6,500 precious gems, the Fireworks Fantasy Bra is finally here. Worn by Victoria’s Secret veteran Angel Lily Aldridgeand crafted by the label’s traditional jeweler, Mouawad, the sleek demi-shaped bra is adorned with spark-like bursts of more than 14 different precious gems, from blue topaz and garnet to yellow sapphire—all set in 18-karat gold. As for the diamonds? The total weight is more than 375 carats—so imagine Angelina Jolie Pitt’s 16-carat engagement ring making rounds on a bustier about 23 times. In total, the combined weight of all the stones is just under 1,364 carats, while even the panties pack a punch, dotted with 126 diamonds and 400 other precious stones. But as for the most whopping figure? The price tag: The set is valued at $2 million. After all, who said underpinnings had to be barely there?
Here, watch Aldridge unveil the Fireworks Fantasy Bra with a shimmy and a shake.
