20 Things You Can Buy For The Same Price As The Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the world’s sexiest catwalk: the Victoria’s Secret fashion show! And with babein duo Kendall and Gigi confirmed to walk, 10 new angels taking part and a stellar musical lineup confirmed including Selena Gomez, Ellie Goulding and The Weeknd it looks like this year won’t disappoint. Aside from the glitzy wings and runway glamour the most talked about part of the show is always the grand, diamond encrusted Fantasy Bra. Acting as the glitzy annual centrepiece to the event, the Fantasy Bra has been worn by the likes of Miranda Kerr, Gisele Bundchen and Heidi Klum and ranges in price from $1 million to a whopping $15 million - talk about luxe!
This year’s bra has been dubbed the ‘Fireworks Fantasy Bra’ will be worn by mega babe Lily Aldridge. Designed by Victoria’s Secret traditional jeweler Mouawad, the bra took 685 hours to create and is adorned with over 6,500 diamonds and gems weighing over 375 carats. Inspired by fireworks, the bra and blue knickers feature a design to look like sparks created out of pink quartz, sapphire and topaz to name a few. And the cost of this year’s spectacular bra? A staggering $2 million USD (around $2,780,000 AUD) To put things into perspective, Stylight calculated all the other ways you could spend a cool two million dollars…
Want to channel your inner Victoria’s Secret angel? 2 million could take you a long way… 28,600 waxes (that’s one a month for over 2,000 years!) it’d also get you more than 11 thousand spa days, a hell of a lot of lip gloss, hundreds of thousands of angel inspired fancy dress party wings, 100 years of personal training and over 400,000 selfie sticks to capture your makeover on.
As the show has moved back to New York from London this year, why not spend the cash on 8 return private jet flights from Sydney to the Big Apple. And what about some champagne for the ride? The cost of the bra is equivalent to 191 Olympic sized swimming pools of Dom Perignon!
Since the bra is inspired by fireworks we even calculated that the value would get you 571,400 firework rockets and costs the same as lighting up London on the 5th of November! And ultimately the cost of the Fantasy Bra is the same as 38,100 regular Victoria’s Secret lingerie sets - that’s a new set of underwear everyday for 104 years!
So… what would you spend the cash on?
