On Wednesday, Hoda showed off her new bra (she was not wearing it at the time). It was a feathered, bedazzled custom piece from the charity FestiGals, which asks celebrity designers to create bras for a cause. Inspired by Hoda's Egyptian heritage, artist Janet Falciglia created the beaded number, and named it "The Jewel of the Nile."
FestiGals will auction off the bras during its weekend benefit for the Cancer Association of greater New Orleans. Notable designers include Martina McBride, chef Susan Spicer, and, as Hoda noted specially, CNN political correspondent James Carville.
"Eww," said KLG. "I don't want a bra made by James Carville!"
Sorry, Ragin' Cajun. On the bright side, it's for a good cause, and you probably don't have to model it.
