The stars aligned and angels took the stage at the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and as usual there were some great moments such as Adriana Lima kicking off the show with its Circus theme, Dangerous Liasons, Calendar Girls, and Rihanna‘s vocals, and moments we could have done without — yes Justin Beiber, I’m talking to you.
Like last year’s show, this was taped at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City and featured a total of 40 angels including Alessandra Ambrósio, Miranda Kerr, Karlie Kloss, Candice Swanepoel and Doutzen Kroes — just to name a few.
Besides gorgeous models and top stars, the yearly show also features a model who is chosen among the Angels to wear a bejeweled bra dubbed the “Fantasy Bra,” which was first advertised in the Victoria’s Secret catalog, but since 2001 has been worn in the Fashion Shows.
Prior to each Fashion Show, Victoria’s Secret contracts a renowned jewelry designer to craft the bra to be used as a focal point for promoting the fashion show and as a centerpiece within it. The company offers the bra for sale as “the ultimate holiday” gift, although none have sold to date.
This year’s bra entitled “Floral Fantasy Bra & Gift Set” was worn by Alessandra, and prices for $2.5 million.
Alessandra follows in the footsteps of Heidi Klum — who has worn the Fantasy Bra in three previous shows, Gisele Bündchen, Tyra Banks, Karolina Kurkova, and Adriana Lima — who have each worn two Fantasy Bras.
