It’s that time of year again.
Halloween is over, there’s a hint of festivity in the air, snow — dare we say — is on the way, and it’s all leading up to the one magical moment merrymakers young and old look forward to all year: The Victoria’s Secret Fashion show.
The highlight of the show, the Fantasy Bra, was revealed Wednesday, and, as expected, it’s fantastic.
The bra, designed by world-renowned jeweler Mouawad, is valued at US$2 million and is set by hand with nearly 6,000 gemstones: diamonds, yellow sapphires, and blue topaz in 18 karat gold, Victoria’s Secret revealed. It took 350 hours to create.
Model Lais Ribeiro will wear the 2017 Champagne Nights Fantasy bra for the first time on the runway, Victoria’s Secret announced Wednesday.
Ribeiro, 27, is the fourth black model to don the bra, Teen Vogue reports. Tyra Banks wore the bra in 1997 and 2004, Selita Ebanks had the honour in 2007, and Jasmine Tookes rocked the runway in last year’s version.
I’ve been holding this secret for too long and I am beyond honored to announce that I will be wearing the Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra this year! I am very happy and thankful for my Victoria’s Secret family for trusting me and all the support from my on family, friends and fans! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! 😭😭😭 its official!! 💎😭
Being chosen to wear the Fantasy Bra is a career-making moment for a Victoria’s Secret runway model, also known as an “Angel,” according to Refinery29.
Ribeiro is “beyond honoured,” she wrote on Instagram.
“I am very happy and thankful for my Victoria’s Secret family for trusting me and all the support from my on family, friends and fans,” Ribeiro said.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs Nov. 28.
The new collection will feature bras, underwear and lingerie in shimmering champagne shades.
