Adriana Lima dons Victoria’s Secret’s 3,575 black-diamond bra

Filed by Lucire staff/October 24, 2008/11.03

Adriana Lima modelling Victoria's Secret Black Diamond Fantasy Miracle Bra, featured in Lucire
Jeweller Martin Katz, who specializes in rare gems, has created a $5 million brassière for Victoria’s Secret, called the Black Diamond Fantasy Miracle Bra.
   Unveiled earlier this week, and modelled by Adriana Lima, the bra features 3,575 black diamonds, 117 certified 1 ct round diamonds and 34 rubies. There is a total of 3,900 gems weighing 1,500 ct on the bra.
   Katz says, ‘This year, I’ve really enjoyed working with non-traditional gems. So, what better avenue to showcase nearly 3,600 black diamonds than on the most extravagant holiday gift: the Victoria’s Secret Black Diamond Fantasy Miracle Bra? And designing it for a gorgeous Brazilian supermodel wasn’t exactly a let-down either.’
   Lima will model the bra in the Victoria’s Secret catalogue and in the telecast on CBS on December 3.
   Victoria’s Secret has been releasing Fantasy Bras for 12 years, beginning with a 1996 edition modelled by supermodel Claudia Schiffer and valued at a comparatively low $1 million. The 2005 bra, valued at $12·5 million, was modelled by another supermodel, Gisèle Bündchen, and perhaps stands out as being one of the most memorable. The 10th anniversary version in 2006 featured 2,000 diamonds weighing 800 ct, was valued at $6·5 million, and was modelled by Karolina Kurkova.
