As has been customary almost every year since 2001, Victoria’s Secret has unveiled the 2017 Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra, designed exclusively by world-renowned luxury jeweler Mouawad.
Stunning Brazilian Angel Lais Ribeiro, who has been a Victoria’s Secret model for years, will be wearing the bra at this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which will take place in Shanghai this November.
This is the first time Lais has been given the prestigious honor of wearing a Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra and follows in the footsteps of other top Supermodels who have sported the Mouawad Fantasy Bras over the years including Lily Aldridge, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Selita Ebanks, Gisele Bündchen, Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, and Karolina Kurkova.
For this year’s all-new design, Mouawad went all the way combining contrasting gemstones in an enchanting and timelessly glowing lingerie suite that pays tribute to beauty, love, and glamour, inspired by history’s most beautiful Greek goddesses.
Valued at US $2 million, the bra and matching belt took more than 350 hours of labor to be handset with nearly 6,000 white diamonds, yellow sapphires, and blue topazes totaling over 640 carat, all set in 18-karat yellow gold. Complementing the bedazzling lingerie suite are a matching bracelet and earrings, set with 75 carat of diamonds, sapphires, and topazes.
Mouawad Jewelry has forged a solid partnership with Victoria’s Secret since 2001, and designed the Fantasy Bras ten times since then, one of which ― the 2003 Very Sexy Fantasy Bra ― was awarded a Guinness World Record as the most expensive bra ever made. Mouawad Jewelry also adorned VS Angels on the runway time and time again during the yearly fashion show.
