Victoria’s Secret Unveils 2016 Fantasy Bra
Victoria Secret may be an apparel company, mainly known for their undergarments, but once a year the world-famous corporation straddles the border between the world of fashion and the world of jewelry when the much-anticipated Fantasy Bra is announced. This is because this particular piece of lingerie is literally like no other on the planet. Embedded with an array of precious gemstones, the bra is designed to be the highlight of Victoria’s Secret’s annual fashion show. Each year a new miraculous piece is created by a different designer and showcased by the designated supermodel of the year. 2016’s lucky winner is Jasmine Tookes, who will proudly display the $3 million bra, the product of designer Eddie Borgo.
Studded with 9,000 Stones
Dubbed the “Bright Night Fantasy Bra,” the newest addition to the Fantasy Bra collection is styled after the new Beautiful style by Victoria’s Secret and consists of 450 carats worth of emeralds and diamonds. The $3 million dollar price tag not only pays for the incredible amount of precious gems but also for the 700 hours of work that it took to put this work of art together. The top quality AWMouzannar stones are set in 18K gold for a polished and sophisticated finish.
About Jasmine Tookes
Every model who is chosen for this prestigious role is extremely lucky, but Tookes is even more fortunate considering how new she is to the industry. Jasmine only joined the Angel squad in 2015, so this early honor is almost unheard of. She will be following in the footsteps of Adriana Lima, Lily Aldridge, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Candice Swanepoel who modeled Fantasy Bras in the past.
The bra will make its official debut on the runway during the December 5 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Paris. It was originally revealed on October 26 at the flagship store in New York City. Jasmine was almost as excited to stand next to the bra as it was photographed as she was when she first heard she would be modeling the Fantasy Bra as well as when she saw it for the first time. The excitement will only prepare her for the exhilarating feeling she will experience when she walks the catwalk in a few weeks’ time.
