The much-anticipated sexiest night on television, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, is quickly approaching, and there are a few surprises in store for the 10 million faithfuls that tune in every year for a glimpse of intimate beauty.
For starters, the lavish event, full of A-list celebrities and leading musical performers, will be held this time around in London, not in New York City. “It’s fun to do it in a new place. It’s going to be a fun trip for Victoria’s Secret Angels,” says Alessandra Ambrosio, who will be modeling the show’s pièces de résistance—the jewel-encrusted Dream Angel bras—with Adriana Lima. The supermodels have known each other for more than 10 years since their early days in Brazil. “It’s such an honor and I am very happy to be with Adriana, the two Brazilian girls,” Ambrosio tells Vegas Rated.
Now in its 14th year, the show’s ultimate surprise will be not one but two jewel-encrusted, multimillion-dollar Dream Angel bras. Valued at $2 million apiece, the fantasy bras come with body pieces studded with 16,000 sapphires, rubies and diamonds set in 18-karat gold. “The body chains gives it an exotic touch,” Lima says.
Renowned jewelry designer Mouawad created the gleaming intimate wear with inspiration from the design team of the Dream Angels bra collection. “These bras are very unique and very delicate,” he says. And a dream to behold, even as you watch them from a screen in your living room.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs December 9 on CBS. victoriassecret.com
