Victoria’s Secret angel and new mum Miranda Kerr, has been chosen by the brand to model the iconic Fantasy Treasure Bra in the Christmas Dreams & Fantasies catalogue and during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in November. Obviously not intended for daily wear, the bra is decorated with a variety of precious stones and it is worth $2.5 million.
The aqua push-up brassiere, created in part by Long Island’s London Jewelers, is handset with nearly 3,400 precious gems, including 142 carats of white and yellow diamonds, pearls, faceted citrines and aquamarines, all set in 18-karat white and yellow gold. The centerpiece features two white diamonds, each more than 8 carats, and two 14-plus-carat yellow diamonds.
The runway show will be a very special moment for Kerr: aside from wearing the Fantasy Treasure Bra, she’ll be returning to the Victoria’s Secret catwalk after taking a one-year hiatus while she was pregnant with son Flynn. It’s such an honor to wear the bra, Kerr tells. And it’s such a piece of artwork! It’s absolutely stunning — it kind of feels a little mermaid-like — but I can’t believe I’m wearing $2.5 million on my chest.
Adriana Lima (who last year wore a $2 Million fantasy bra), Alessandra Ambrosio, Doutzen Kroes, Erin Heatherton, Lily Aldridge and Lindsay Ellingson are among the models who will walk the show, while Kanye West and Maroon 5 are set to perform during the show.
