They were tasked with strutting their stuff down the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Show in the dazzling $2 million Dream Angels Fantasy Bras. And Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima certainly did the extraordinary items justice as they took to the catwalk at London’s Earl’s Court on Tuesday evening for the lavish event.
Each of this year’s designs was made by Mouawad jewelers using 16,000 rubies, diamonds and sapphires, all of which are strung together with 18 karat gold. The ornate ensembles took the designers more than 1,380 hours to make.
The stunning Brazilian models proved their worth as they displayed the skimpy and elaborate creations, revealing their slender and shapely figures for the eager audience.
The highlight of the annual Victoria’s Secret catwalk event is always the reveal of the Fantasy Bra, of which this year there were two, each of them designed and made by Mouawad for the lingerie brand.
Adriana, 33, wore the blue and silver version of the swanky lingerie, her toned body bedecked in intricate jewelry across her décolletage, down her torso and also over her slim hips.
Alessandra, also 33, had the pleasure of wearing the red bra, and was covered in even more body jewelry than her colleague, accentuating her enviably trim shape, flat stomach and muscular yet lean thighs.
Each of the women – who have been Victoria’s Secret Angels for years (Adriana since 2000, Alessandra since 2004) – were adorned with large, flowing capes matching the color of their underwear, adding to the drama of the moment.
