$2.5 million for a push-up bra?!
Whoever wears that piece of lingerie better strut around in it with pride. And in public.
Enter new mommy, wife of Orlando Bloom, and cutie patootie supermodel Miranda Kerr. On Wednesday, Victoria's Secret announced that Kerr will model the 2011 Fantasy Treasure Bra in the company's Christmas catalog, as well as on the runway of the VS Fashion Show. Kerr follows in the footsteps of past Angels Tyra Banks, Claudia Schiffer, Gisele Bundchen, and Heidi Klum.
Meanwhile, we have the details on the Fantasy Treasure Bra, which was supposedly inspired by an underwater "dreamland" of "aquatic Angels."
The bra, by the numbers
- Valued at $2.5 million
- Handset with nearly 3400 precious gems, including white and yellow diamonds, pearls, citrines and aquamarines, all set in 18 karat white and yellow gold
- The centerpiece tassel is adorned with two white diamonds (each over 8 carats) and two yellow diamonds (each over 14 carats)
- Overall, the bra includes over 142 carats of diamonds. Whoa.
- Each stone was hand placed by master craftsmen in 500 hours of work.
The annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is set to air on Nov. 29. on CBS, as we announced last week. Kanye West and Maroon 5 will perform.
We project plenty of bling, and a pretty awful glare off our TV screens. Fab!
