Every October, Victoria’s Secret Angel fans have something to look forward to-the annual Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra Reveal. There, we find-out which lucky VS Angel gets to wear the six-figure gem studded bra on Angel Game Day. The Reveal event is great pre-press for the real headliner, the December 4th Victoria’s Secret Runway Show.
This year, Alessandra Ambrosio will wear the $2.5 million fantasy bra set designed by London Jewelers. The bra is a custom fit Very Sexy Push-Up bra decorated with 5,200 precious gems. Rather than the confetti pattern I’d been expecting, the Reveal features beautiful pink and yellow roses fashioned from rubies, white, pink and yellow diamonds set in 18 karat rose and yellow gold. The flower pattern is akin to Van Cleef & Arpel’s art deco Roses Bracelet and Brooch created in 1924. The Van Cleef piece is set in platinum, but both share a floral style focused on nature and are lovely collectibles.
The Reveal comes with some clever extras, two removable diamond flower pins, weighting in at 12.5 carats and 20 carats, respectively. The matching belt is stunning and would make quite the statement necklace for the lucky woman who will eventually get to wear it.
The $500K bottle London Jewelers created to house the the Bombshell Fantasy Fragrance [ V.S. Bombshell Eau de Parfum] looks like an immense cushion cut diamond accessorized with the same roses and vines as the bra. Most remarkable is the one of a kind, hand carved tourmaline butterfly perched next to the large diamond in the center. The Bombshell Fantasy Fragrance encompasses notes of purple passion fruit, Shangri-la peony and vanilla orchid.
There’s a few ways the rest of us can participate in the Fantasy reveal for significantly less moolah. Pick up a bottle of Victoria’s Secret Bombshell fragrance for [under $70], a Very Sexy Push Up Bra [$58-68], and put your creative genius to work. All you need are some pretty beads [Swarovski crystals are best] and a glue gun. Why not indulge in a little D.I.Y. and create your own version of the Fantasy Reveal as you tune in on Tuesday night, December 4th, 10:00p.m., EST, on the CBS Television Network when they air the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion show? Don’t forget to spritz yourself with some Bombshell.
Enjoy the show!
