Each year one model dons the extravagant lingerie set at the luxury lingerie firm’s annual fashion show, which is taking place in London, UK, in December.
This time around it’s been announced that two of the company’s Angels will get the honour, with a picture of Adriana and Alessandra in the pieces posted on Instagram.
“The dynamic duo in their Fantasy Bras! Watch @GoodMorningAmerica tomorrow for an interview with @AdrianaLima & @AlessandraAmbrosio. #VSFantasyBra @mouawadjewelry (sic),” it was captioned.
Both the bras are worth $2 million and have been designed by Mouawad Jewelry. They took 1,380 hours to make and are hand-set with rubies, diamonds and sapphires. Each boasts chains of jewels which stretch across the models’ bodies, with the strings made of 18-carat gold.
The company posted singular pictures of the ladies in the pieces too, with Alessandra boasting a red bra and panties set. As this is one of the Fantasy Bras it had to be special, and there are strings of gold and jewels stretching across her chest like a necklace, as well as down her stomach and legs.
Adriana’s is a contrasting blue colour, and includes lavish strings of beads moulded to look like shoulder pads and reaching down her thighs. They aren’t costume jewellery, with the caption on Adriana’s singular shot explaining she is wearing 10,000 carats of jewels.
The models are two of the biggest names in the Victoria’s Secret roster and both have done the Fantasy Bra honours before, with Adriana wearing it in 2008 and 2010 and Alessandra taking the honours in 2012.
The show is being staged at Earl’s Court on December 2, with Candice Swanepoel explaining why the choice was made earlier this year.
“Victoria’s Secret has become such an international brand, the show has been in Cannes before, we’ve done it in Los Angeles and Miami, and the last couple of years in New York, and I think it’s just natural for us to come to London,” WWD quoted her as saying.
