9,000 Precious Gemstones, 700 Hours.
“When they told me, I was so caught off guard, I thought I was just doing an interview, and Ed (Razek, Victoria’s Secret chief marketing officer) kind of sprung it on me, It’s such an honor for me to join a whole group of women who are icons, and who I grew up watching over the years.” – Jasmine Tookes.
Victoria Secret Angel Jasmine Tookes is the chosen one. Jasmine is gonna prance on the runway of the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this year in the “Bright Night Fantasy Bra” $3 million dollar Fantasy bra. Joining the likes of Gisele Bündchen, Adriana Lima, Tyra Banks and more!
There’s a gag, this year’s Bra is different than any that Victoria’s Secret has done before. This year’s edition received an update courtesy of designer Eddie Borgo, who brought a downtown cool to the project, reimagining the piece as a sexy push-up covered in a series of spikes and studs.Eddie Borgo and his team worked for 7 months to create a design that combined his personal work with the Victoria’s Secret aesthetic.
The final piece handcrafted with jewels by AWMouzannar took 700 hours to complete, and fully lives up to its extravagant reputation. With 9,000 precious gemstones set in more than 450 karats of 18K gold.
“The energy is going to be amazing in Paris, everyone is so excited—it’s going to be one of the best VS shows yet!” – Jasmine Tookes
