Victoria’s secret, the most awaiting fashion show will be hosted in Shanghai, China this month. One of the biggest parts of the show is the Fantasy Bra, and each year a different model has the honor of wearing the diamond and gem-encrusted design.
The show is one of the biggest fashion catwalks of the year. This year, it is rumoured Harry Styles and Taylor Swift will be performing on the catwalk. Taylor previously performed for VS in 2014. Lais Ribeiro will wear the Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra, worth £1.5 million, for 2017.
Victoria’s Secret are famed for their extravagant designs and many luxury bras have made it down the runway. So which is the most expensive Fantasy Bra ever made?
There has been a Fantasy Bra designed every year since 1996, and supermodels such as Tyra Banks and Claudia Schiffer have been photographed in the iconic underwear.
However only one model gets the accolade of wearing the most expensive of all time, and that is Giselle Bündchen.
The Brazilian model has worn the Bra twice, once in 2000 and again in 2005.
It was her first run that saw her don the most expensive ever. The Red Hot Fantasy Bra and Panty set was worth an eye-watering $15 million (£11.3 million).
However, the luxurious ruby lingerie was not seen on the catwalk, as the Bra was not sent down the runway from 1997 – 2000.
It has appeared every other year since, barring 2004, when Tyra Banks slipped into the Heavenly “70” Bra for promotional photos only.
Tyra has walked down the catwalk in a Fantasy Bra before though, as she wore the first ever version in 1996.
The Million Dollar Miracle Bra was worn by Claudia Schiffer in the billboard advertising, but Tyra modelled it for the catwalk.
Heidi has not walked for VS since 2009, whilst Adriana is set to appear once again this year in China.
Alongside Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana has walked the most for the brand, with each woman clocking 16 appearances each.
