The Mouawad-designed Heavenly '70s Fantasy bra contains 2,900 diamonds. Yeah, but do the straps stay up on the shoulders?
The model shows off this year's Heavenly '70s Fantasy bra from Victoria's Secret, a $10 million creation from jewelry designer Mouawad.
The brassiere's weighty highlight: a flawless 70-carat pear-shaped diamond in the center. The jeweled bra also is adorned with 2,900 diamonds set in 10-karat white gold. It will be featured in Victoria's Secret's Christmas catalog, due in mailboxes Friday.
This is Banks' second time introducing the dream bra, an annual event for nine years. In 1997, Banks, host of UPN's hit reality series America's Next Top Model, launched a $3 million bra made by Harry Winston. Heidi Klum has been the model three times, including 2003, when she was newly pregnant with her daughter, who was born in May.
This year's bra isn't the most expensive one ever. That honor goes back to the economic heyday of 2000, when Winston created a $15 million bra.
