Get Stuff We Love
Now that November's here, we're already starting to think about December — which means, not only the holiday season, but one of the most fun and glamorous spectacles on television all year: The Victoria's Secret fashion show.
Whether you're a guy or a girl, a fashion lover or hater, it doesn't really matter; between the eccentric designs and the musical performances, there's probably something to catch your eye.
And while the show might be just more than a month away, Victoria's Secret is already preparing for the big night to be. On Monday, model Lily Aldridge announced on Instagram that she would be following in the footsteps of famed faces like Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Claudia Schiffer, Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio and Gisele Bundchen by wearing this year's Fantasy Bra.
This is particularly exciting for Aldridge. While she's been cast in the fashion show for the past seven years, the veteran Angel has never been selected to wear the Fantasy Bra until now.
This year's Fantasy Bra is called "Fireworks," and as Vogue reports, it includes 6,500 precious gems of 14 different varieties all set in 18K gold, as well as 375 carats of diamonds. With so many jewels, the bra is estimated at $2 million, according to Vogue. There's guaranteed to be a lot of glitz and glam.
Jewelry brand Mouwad, which has made a name for itself creating previous Fantasy Bras, had the honor of putting together this one for Aldridge. And creating such a bejewled and bedazzled masterpiece wasn't exactly easy. As Vogue said, it took a whopping 685 hours (or just over 28 and a half days) to make.
We can't wait to see Aldridge spread her Angel wings and walk down the catwalk in this gorgeous number!
