The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is finally upon us. The show will be staged this Thursday (don’t miss our backstage coverage!) and won’t air until December 2, but we’re getting a sneak peek of this year’s Fantasy Bra — and the wearer.
Since 1996, Victoria’s Secret has been selecting one or two Angels to wear a glamorous and luxurious lingerie set. Past Fantasy Bra wearers have been Tyra Banks (1997 and 2004), Heidi Klum (1999, 2001 and 2003), Gisele Bündchen (2000 and 2005), Adriana Lima (2008 and 2010), Miranda Kerr (2011), Alessandra Ambrosio (2012 and 2014), Jasmine Tookes (2016) andLais Ribeiro (2017). After much rumor and speculation, Victoria’s Secret has announced via Instagram and Twitter that the chosen Angel this year is Swedish model Elsa Hosk.
Living up to its name, this year’s Fantasy Bra and body chain are valued at $1 million and feature over 71 Swarovski diamonds and responsibly sourced topaz. It took 930 hours to create and, for the first time ever, customers will be able to purchase a version of the bra with Swarovski crystals by for $250 in select stores and online.
Stay tuned for all the runway looks right here and watch the show on December 2. In the meantime, see all the looks from the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show below.
