PIX: 10 oomphalicious models to wear the Fantasy Bra

Last updated on: November 07, 2017 15:09 IST

Presenting the lucky few who got a chance to wear the Fantasy Bra on the runway. 

The annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show features a showstopping 'Fantasy Bra' crafted from real jewels and worth millions of dollars.

The bejewelled Fantasy Bra has been part of Victoria's Secret's catalogue since 1996 and the first one that cost a million dollars was modeled by Claudia Schiffer.

Between 1996 and 2000 they were only part of the catalogue and didn't make it to the runway. Since then (barring the 2004 Fantasy Bra) all of them have appeared as part of the annual Victoria's Secret fashion show.

Presenting the models who wore the Fantasy Bra at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show from 2010.

Take a look!
