The 2015 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show taped in New York City on Tuesday night, and it was truly the most glamorous event I have ever seen — at least it looked that way from the endless photos and videos posted to social media. Fashion's favorite rookies, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, may have garnered a ton of buzz, but all eyes were definitely on a VS veteran. Lily Aldridge debuted the Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra at last night's show, and the sparkly piece was even more magnificent than what you probably imagined.
This year's signature bra, designed by Mouawad, was themed around fireworks. According to The Daily Mail, the $2 million piece was encrusted in 18-karat gold and over 6,500 gems including red garnet, blue topaz, yellow sapphire, and pink quartz, all designed in the shape of delicate fireworks bursting outwards.
Aldridge was dressed in a set of brightly colored "wings," which were really more like beautiful flowers, in similar shades to the Fantasy Bra. The yellow, pink, and turquoise florals emulated the shape of exploding fireworks, to further highlight the theme of the festive look. It looked completely awe-worthy.
Feast your eyes on the stunning look.
One word: wow.
Here is a closeup of the bra:
That intricate beadwork is seriously impressive.
Being chosen to wear the Fantasy Bra is kind of like getting inducted into the VS Angels hall of fame — it's a huge honor. Modeling legends including Adriana Lima, Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Klum, and Tyra Banks have all been given the prestige of rocking it on the runway. Let's take a look at past years' Fantasy Bras on fashion legends.
