Victoria’s Secret much-awaited fantasy bra encrusted with jewels has made its debut at the Victoria’s Secret 2011 fashion show. The $2.5 Million Dollar Fantasy Bra was modeled by Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr, who flaunted her toned post-baby body much like Heidi Klum’s Victoria’s Secret catwalk back in 2008. This year’s diamond bra named the “Fantasy Treasure Bra,” is aqua colored, and boasts nearly 3,400 precious gems, including 142 carats of white and yellow diamond, pearls, citrines, aquamarines set in bright 18 karat white and yellow gold. The center of the bra holds two large white diamonds each an astonishing 8 carats with two 14 carat yellow diamonds to give it a more opulent look. The bra is made by Long Island’s London Jewelers.
On its comfortable fit, Miranda Kerr says, “Its such an honor to wear the bra. 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.”
