First look: Alessandra Ambrosio in $2.5 million bra!


The Brazilian supermodel is all set to don the pricey lingerie for the much-hyped Victoria's Secret annual fashion show next month.

Each year, lingerie giant Victoria's Secret has a special edition bejewelled Fantasy bra created for their annual showing, which is arguably the biggest innerwear event in the world -- and the honour of modelling this beautiful creation falls to one VS Angel.

Tthis year, it happens to be Alessandra Ambrosio.

The 31-year-old mother-of-two will walk the runway in the Floral Fantasy Bra Gift Set, designed exclusively for the brand by London Jewelers; it consists of a push-up bra embellished with precious stones set in gold and a matching belt.

The sexy set features approximately 5,200 gems -- amethysts, sapphires and rubies, with a floral 20-carat diamond centrepiece -- and is priced at an eye-watering $2.5 million.

Speaking to People, Alessandra revealed that she was delighted to learn that she would be modelling the jewelled ensemble back in May, just three weeks after the birth of her son. "I just wanted to scream," she was quoted as saying by the magazine. "But I won't lie, I was really worried. I was in total mother mode."

After the go-ahead from her doctor, she started walking and doing yoga for the first two months, then moved on to daily sessions of cardio and Pilates.

And now that she's back in top shape, we're all looking forward to watching her blaze on the runway in a couple of weeks!
