Blinged Out Bras: A Look Back At 14 Years of the Victoria’s Secret Multi-Million Dollar Fantasy Bras

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, in all of it's boob-ed and winged splendor, airs tonight at 10 p.m. on CBS. This year, Adriana Lima wears the coveted fantasy bra, which rings in at a whopping $2 million and took craftsmen over 1500 hours to make. Of course, $2 million is nothing compared to the $15 million ruby and diamond encrusted bra and panty set that Gisele Bündchen wore during the Victoria's Secret show in 2000. That lingerie set holds the Guiness Book record for the most expensive underwear in the world. In fact, this year marks the cheapest fantasy bra Victoria's Secret has shown since they started the fantasy bra in 1996. Claudia Schiffer got the honor that year of wearing the very first million dollar fantasy bra. Since we've already singled out the 10 most ridiculous looks from tonight's show, without further ado, a look back at 14 years of the Victoria's Secret fantasy bras.
