Victoria’s Secret Angel Lily Aldridge will wear this year’s Fantasy Bra at the brand’s annual fashion show tonight in New York. Worth $2 million, the piece includes 6,500 precious gems ranging from yellow sapphires to pink quartz and topaz, all set in 18-karat gold, alongside 375 carats of diamonds.

Called the “Fireworks Fantasy Bra”, it was designed by Geneva-based jeweler Mouawad, and took a reported 685 hours to make.

It will be shown this evening at Victoria’s Secret 20th anniversary show, alongside other models including Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, as well as music from Selena Gomez, Ellie Goulding and The Weeknd.

The best thing we’ve spotted about it so far however? The infographic below from fashion site Stylight listing 20 alternative luxe and fun things you could buy for the price of the diamond-encrusted bra. Anyone up for 432,000 selfie sticks? Or how about eight return private jets from London to New York? Plus a serious amount of champagne for the ride – 13,100 bottles of Dom Perignon is the equivalent of filling 191 Olympic sized swimming pools. Or if you replace the Fantasy Bra with 26,000 regular Victoria’s Secret lingerie sets, that’s a new set everyday for 71 years.
