With less than three weeks to go until the Angels take Shanghai, Victoria’s Secret revealed their highly-coveted fantasy bra today. The “Champagne Nights Fantasy” bra featuring handset diamonds, yellow sapphires, blue topaz in 18 karat gold, designed by Mouawad, costs $2 million dollars and will be worn by Lais Ribeiro.
The 6-foot-1 Brazilian-born stunner who has been working with Victoria’s Secret since 2010, officially became an Angel in 2015, and has appeared in every fashion show except 2012 when she sprained her ankle during rehearsals and was unable to walk the show.
Ribeiro began modeling in 2009, just a year after giving birth to her son Alexandre. Her friends urged her to pursue modeling in her native Brazil and quickly became one of the most booked models during Sao Paulo fashion week. A year later Ribeiro was walking the runways from New York to Paris, working with designers like Jean Paul Gaultier, Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford who made her the face of one of his fragrances.
The model stays in tip-top shape by training with Dogpound fitness like many of her fellow angels including Jasmine Tookes and Josphine Skriver.
