Victoria’s Secret, along with Angel Adriana Lima, hosted an intimate luncheon yesterday for fashion bloggers to showcase the $2 Million Bombshell Fantasy Bra that Lima will wear during next month’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion show.
The bra, designed by Damiani, is comprised of over 3000 white diamonds in an Old Hollywood-style star burst pattern set in 18 karat white gold. (If you can’t swing $2 million for a diamond encrusted bra, Victoria’s Secret is offering a Swarovski crystal version for just $250.)
“It’s very elegant and 1950′s–definitely my style,” Lima told us, also noting that this incarnation of the Bombshell Fantasy bra (which she has worn once before) was not “vulgar” and very comfortable.
Lima, who had a baby just last year, is not worried about her body being back in Angel shape (she was wearing a skin tight leather mini dress, and it was hard to believe a baby ever came out of that body), but she admits she still gets nervous before she walks.
“Every year I get nervous–it’s like the first time every year,” she said. Her trick? Wearing the same perfume (a VS scent, of course, called “Very Sexy”). “It’s a ritual–it helps me feel comfortable and sexy.”
But back to the baby thing. It seems like there’s something in those Angel wings. Miranda Kerr and Doutzen Kroes are pregnant. Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio, Karolina Kurkova, Claudia Schiffer have all had babies recently.
“I think the whole world is having babies right now,” said Lima. “Not just the Angels, but all models and I heard Beyonce might be pregnant? I think fashion is embracing pregnant women.”
But would she have walked pregnant?
“Of course I would walk pregnant–it’s a natural, beautiful thing. I really felt like i was a goddess [while i was pregnant].”
In fact, Lima says she was approached to walk in a show while pregnant.
“I was only three months at the time and they wanted me to be further along,” says Lima.
There you have it: Pregnant models, still so hot right now.
