Jewelry designer Eddie Borgo created this year’s Bright New Fantasy Bra, which features a row of emeralds and pointy studs covered in diamonds. It was molded to fit Tookes’ body and it took over seven months and 700 hours of labor to create.

The bra has over 9, 000 gemstones which are set in over 450 karats of 18k gold. It’s valued at $3 million.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has become one of the hottest tickets in town and an annual event that sees the likes of Rihanna and Ariana Grande as performers and attendees.

This year’s theme will be Parisian glamour, so it’ll be fun to watch how that’s incorporated with the Victoria’s Secret brand.
