Amethysts, rubies and diamonds - oh, my! Victoria's Secret's annual blinged-out brassiere reveal has finally come.
Lucky for us, DIY Fashion's own Amber Milt was on hand this afternoon as Angel Alessandra Ambrosio unveiled the brand's $2.5 million Fantasy Bra at the Herald Square storefront in New York City.
Looking glamorous as ever in a plunging gold gown, the busy mom of two took time to chat with us about sporting the luxe lingerie piece, and also let fans in on her one must-have cosmetic item.
On what it feels like to wear a $2.5 million bra?
I feel so honored to be wearing the Floral Fantasy Bra by London Jewelers. It feels, like, incredible! I feel really beautiful and I can't wait to wear it in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show on December 4.
On its comfort:
It actually it is! It's built on the Very Sexy Push Up Bra, that gives you beautiful cleavage, so it's comfortable, it has the extra 5,200 precious gems on it.
On whether it came with a security guard:
I don't know, good question. I'm sure it does! If you don't have the $2.5 million to spend on the bra, you can always go with the Very Sexy Push Up that we have. They give you beautiful cleavage and they make you feel just as sexy.
On preparing for the fashion show:
Well, there's workouts, there's eating healthy. All the Angels try to be as healthy as they can. For me, you know, I want to give a good example to my kids. At home, we always have a lot of salads and fruit, here and there we'll have sweets, 'cause of the kids. But, I try to eat very healthy. And I hit the gym, too. I try to do three times a week, four times a week. I've been doing a lot of spinning lately, that's really fun to do and Pilates.
On how getting ready was different this time around:
This year, because I'm wearing the Fantasy Bra, I've been working out my upper body. [Because] usually, as a Brazilian, Brazilians only workout the lower body. And this year, for the first time, I'm like doing arms and I'm doing chest and back. I'm doing all this for the bra.
On one last minute beauty tip for women:
Well, my beauty tip for women, is, I love bronzer. So, I think a nice bronzer gives you a nice glow to get out of the house.
