World-renowned jeweler Mouawad was once again chosen to design and produce the Fantasy Bra
for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. This year’s highly anticipated creation, named the Fireworks Fantasy Bra
, illustrates its name with more than 6,000 gems in a spectacular display of color.
Valued at $2 million, the bra and matching belt took more than 685 hours to make by hand, and feature 6,808 gemstones, including diamonds, yellow sapphires, blue topaz and pink quartz, set in 18-karat gold. The bra was inspired by the Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Flirt
bra, which debuted in stores and online Nov. 11.
Victoria’s Secret Angel Lily Aldridge was given the honor of wearing the Fireworks Fantasy Bra
for the first time in the “Fireworks” section of the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, the televised version of which airs Dec. 8 on CBS. Other models walking the runway also wore Mouawad jewels, worth $15 million in total.
