(CBS NEWS) The bra costs how much?
Victoria's Secret has unveiled this year's Fantasy Bra ahead of the 2015 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, and as usual, it has a hefty price tag: $2 million.
Lily Aldridge did the honors of modeling the bra, made by jeweler Mouaward. She wore the bra with blue panties and both the top and bottom feature starburst-like arrays of multicolored gemstones.
hat makes the bra $2 million?
6,500 gems, including blue topaz and yellow sapphire.
685 hours to make the Fantasy Bra.
375 total carat weight of the bra.
126 diamonds used on the panties.
18 karats gold.
With all of the glitter, bling and hefty price tag, the bra is probably more of a fantasy for women than it is for men.
Believe it or not, this year's design isn't even close to Victoria's Secret's most expensive Fantasy Bra. Last year, there were two $2 million bras, worn by Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima. In 2013, Candice Swanepoel wore a bra that was $10 million -- still nothing compared to 2000's Fantasy Bra, which was $20 million, worn by Gisele Bundchen.
This year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show will be filled with celebrities, including Rihanna and The Weeknd as performers, and Gigi Hadid as a new model for the brand.
The show will air on Dec. 8 on CBS.
