They say good bras are a necessary investment piece, but these are quite the splurge.
Victoria’s Secret models Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio were the lucky pair chosen to debut the brand’s Dream Angels Fantasy Bras designed by luxury jeweler and watchmaker Mouawad at the Fashion Show Mall on Thursday, Nov. 13, in Las Vegas. The honor usually goes to one model, but this year the Brazilian beauties were both chosen to wear the pieces.
At $2 million each (whew!), the elaborate pieces were built with over 16,000 gem stones, handset with rubies, diamonds, royal blue and light blue sapphires, and sewn together with strands of 18K gold.
For the annual unveiling event preceding the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Ambrosio, 33, wore a sexy sheer ruby red Donna Karan gown with a plunging neckline.
Lima, also 33, matched her bejeweled undergarments with a midnight blue dress, splashed with sequined embellishments.
Lima described how preps for the runway show to Elle.com. “Boxing for me is [great because] it takes so much of your concentration,” she said. “You need a lot of focus. If I go running, for example, I will be thinking about everything: what I’m going to do, what’s the next thing, I think about everything.”
The intense sport keeps the mother of two in a calm state of mind. “When I do boxing, it brings me to a zen place, because you have to focus and you can not think about anything else. And I love that,” she said.
Get ready to see Lima, Ambrosio, and more models strut their stuff for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show in London, on Tuesday, Dec 9, at 10 p.m. EST/ 9 p.m. CST on CBS.
