Mouawad Designs Victoria's Secret 2015 Fireworks Fantasy Bra
It is that time of year, when the eyes of the world turn to the glittering finale of the greatest catwalk on earth. As has been customary almost every year since 2001, Victoria’s Secret Show featured today the 2015 Fireworks Fantasy Bra designed exclusively by world-renowned luxury jeweler, Mouawad.
Stunning American Angel Lily Aldridge, who has been a Victoria’s Secret model for years, sauntered down the runway in Mouawad’s bejeweled and elaborate creation, revealing her slender and shapely figure for the eager audience.
This is the first time Lily has been given the prestigious honor of wearing a Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra and follows in the footsteps of other top Supermodels who have sported the Mouawad Fantasy Bras over the years including Heidi Klum, Karolina Kurkova, Tyra Banks, Selita Ebanks, Gisele Bündchen, Candice Swanepoel, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio.
For this year’s all-new design, Mouawad went all the way combining contrasting gemstones in an urbane and timelessly glowing lingerie suite that pays tribute to positive energy and joie de vivre.
Valued at $2 million, the bra and matching belt took more than 685 hours of labor to be handset with 6,808 dazzling precious gems totaling 1,300 carats, including diamonds and swirling strings of blue topaz, yellow sapphires and pink quartz all set in 18-karat gold.
Victoria’s Secret super models were also adorned with Mouawad’s exquisite masterpieces, some of the world’s most stunning and beautiful high jewelry. The jewels, valued at $15 million, were specifically selected to complement the intricate designs and respective theme of the lingerie worn by each model.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs December 8 at 10/9C on the CBS television network.
