Guess which VS angel will be wearing the $3M Fantasy Bra this year?
After the news broke that the 2016 Victoria's Secret show will be held in Paris for the first time in VS history - we knew this year was going to go big. And it seems even the fantasy bra has had a revamp, transforming the iconic lingerie piece like we've never seen before.
Marking another first for the show, model Jasmine Tookes was announced as the lucky VS angel to wear the 2016 fantasy bra. Tookes will follow in the footsteps of legendary supermodels Giselle Bündchen , Tyra Banks, and Heidi Klum who have all rocked the push-up in previous shows. Speaking to Yahoo, the Huntington Beach native explained the news came as a total shock, "I just immediately started crying. It was such a shock to me. I couldn't believe that it was my chance to wear the bra."
According to Vogue, this year's bra was designed by Eddie Borgo, who completely reinvented the sexy push-up, giving the bra a "cool girl" revamp. Alongside creative director of the show Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou, it took the team seven months and over 700 hours to create the fantasy bra, but the result is *mind-blowing*: a total of 9000 precious gemstones used, weighing over 450 carats, set in 18-Karat gold, and worth a shy $3 million.
You can watch Tookes wear the million-dollar bra alongside the rest of the VS angels, on Dec 5.
