Lais Ribeiro to Wear $2 Million Fantasy Bra at This Year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show
I have some wonderful news to share with all of my fellow Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show watchers. It has been announced that Brazilian model and Victoria’s Secret Angel, Lais Ribeiro, will be wearing this year’s fantasy bra!
This year’s fantasy bra, called the Champagne Nights bra, was designed by Mouawad jewelry and is worth $2 million. Take a look at what Lais had to say below:
“I never cried so much in my entire life — and I have a baby. It was so emotional. I couldn’t believe it when they told me. It was so beautiful.”
“Who doesn’t dream about wearing the Fantasy Bra — I mean it’s an honor to be among Gisele Bündchen, Candice Swanepoel, Adriana [Lima], and all the big top models who have worn it in the past. I get too emotional talking about this. I have to work on that.”
Weighing more than 600 carats, and features diamonds, yellow sapphires, and blue topaz in 18 karat gold on a custom Victoria’s Secret Dream Angels Demi Bra. The ornate design took almost 350 hours to create and is embellished with nearly 6,000 precious gemstones.
Lais serves as the 4th black model to wear following Tyra Banks (1997 and 2004), Selita Ebanks (2007), and Jasmine Tookes (2016).
The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will be held on November 20 and will air on November 28 at 10/9c on CBS.
This year the show will be in Shanghai, China at the Mercedes Benz Arena, which holds more people than any of the previous Victoria’s Secret Fashion show venues. The runway will also feature the debut of the Victoria’s Secret x Balmain collaboration.
