This Is What a $2 Million Bra Looks Like
With a couple of new additions to the Victoria’s Secret Angel Crew (Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner) and a last minute dropout (Rihanna), the web has been all abuzz about who will or will not walk down the catwalk at Victoria Secret’s Annual Fashion Show on December 8. While a lot about the show seems to be tentative, one thing is certain: There will be a $2 million dollar bra on display and VS model Lily Aldridge will be the lucky lady who gets to wear it.
In a video released by Vogue, we’re offered a sneak peek of this year’s oh-so-sparkly “Fireworks Fantasy Bra.” According to the publication, the bra – crafted by the label’s traditional jeweler Mouawad – is made from more than 6,500 precious gems and took a whopping 685 hours of labor to put together.
With over 14 different precious gems featured on the demi-cut bra, you’ll find everything from blue topaz to garnet to yellow sapphire. And if that’s not quite luxe enough for your liking, it’s all set in 18-karat gold. Oh and as far as carats go, it weighs in at 375-carats altogether. Just to put that in perspective, Lady Gaga’s GIANT engagement ring is a mere 6-carats. The grand total? A meager $2 million. BRB, we’re just going to go and empty our piggy banks real quick. That’s sure to cover it, right?
