2014 Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra Revealed- Seeing Double
Victoria’s Secret is not just known for its stylish line of undergarments and accessories but for their unusual line of jeweled items known as the Fantasy Bra collection. These bras are the icing on top of the cake that is the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show. Fashion, lingerie, and precious gem enthusiasts alike eagerly await this event, anticipating the unveiling of some of the most unique and remarkable bras in the world consisting of the world’s finest materials. This year’s Fantasy Bras have already been revealed, and what masterpieces they are! Here is a look at the bejeweled lingerie to be modeled by Victoria’s Secret Angels Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima at this year’s fashion show, as well as Fantasy Bras showcased in the past.
A Brazilian December
This December, the catwalk at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show will be graced with the presence of two beautiful Brazilian Models, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima, who will be displaying this year’s Fantasy Bras, which were recently unveiled on Good Morning America. Each set of undergarments is worth $2 million and contain various precious gemstones including diamonds, rubies, and blue sapphires. Created by Pascal Mouawad, the bras were designed intricately, with jewels suspended from the bra against the abdomen in a sensual fashion. Since the first Fantasy Bra was revealed in 1996, a $1 million bra worn by Claudia Schiffer, Victoria’s Secret has been consistently introducing one unbelievable Fantasy Bra a year. Every year the bra differs greatly in terms of cost ranging from $1 million to a record $15 million. Although this year’s bra is somewhat modestly priced in comparison, the unique factor is that there are two Fantasy Bras instead of one, something that has never been done before. This will be Adriana Lima’s third time modeling a Fantasy Bra. Adriana’s debut was in 2008 and her second time in the spotlight was in 2010, whereas this will be Alessandra Ambrosio’s second Fantasy Bra gig, her first being in 2013 when she modeled an unforgettable $2.5 million floral-designed bra.
Jeweled Fantasy Bras Throughout the Years
Though by far not the most elaborate or expensive Fantasy Bra, the 1996 bra worn by Claudia Schiffer will always go down in the books as one of the most memorable jeweled bras of all times. Other noteworthy bras include the one dubbed as the most expensive bra in the world, worn by Gisele Bundchen in 2000, two $12.5 million bras modeled in 2001 and in 2005 by Heidi Klum and Gisele Bundchen, and the ruby-encrusted $10 million bra displayed by Candice Swanepoel in 2013. Fantasy Bras have made use of some of the finest materials on this planet, including diamonds, color diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and tanzanite, to create the world’s most luxurious bras. At first these bras were just advertised in the catalogue, but were later added to the fashion shows as the centerfold. These fascinating bras are available for purchase, but if they are not sold after a year, they are taken apart. So far only two Fantasy Bras have been sold; the Heavenly “70” from 2004 and the Floral Fantasy Bra from 2012.
From the Diamond Dream Bra worn by Tyra Banks in 1997, consisting of diamonds worth $3 million to the Black Diamond Fantasy Miracle Bra displaying 3,000 black diamonds and 34 rubies worn in 2008 by Adriana Lima to the 2006 Hearts on Fire Diamond Fantasy Bra worn by Karolina Kurkova featuring a 10-carat diamond brooch, Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bras never cease to shock and amaze us. This year’s $2 million bras took over 1,380 hours to make. We can only begin to fathom what they have in store for us next year.
