Staying true to its theme of flamboyance, perfectly toned bodies and, of course, futuristic lingerie, the Victoria’s Secret fashion show held in New York last week got a lot of attention. The one day spectacle of lithe models or angels strutting in expensive underclothes saw model Alessandra Ambrosio walking the ramp in a 2.5 million dollar Floral Fantasy bra, as a part of a yearly tradition by Victoria’s Secret to introduce a Fantasy Bra. This year the million dollar push-up bra featured amethysts, sapphires and rubies, with a floral 20-carat diamond centrepiece. Ambrosio wore it with a delicate belt, strung across the midriff, which sparkled with a further 5,200 precious stones.
The lucky wearer of the fantasy lingerie last year that was also priced at 2.5 million dollars, model Miranda Kerr, also sashayed down the ramp looking hot in a white silk bikini with a black lace overlay, fluffy white wings and black opera gloves. Singers Rihanna and Justin Beiber also attended the show.
