One thing that I struggle to understand is when clothing is insanely expensive. For example, a t-shirt at Wal-Mart that’s $6. You can take the exact same shirt, made from the exact same fabric, and used for the exact same purpose, and just throw a designer name onto it and all of a sudden it’s worth $3000. That just doesn’t make much sense to me. Is brand recognition THAT valuable? For the amount of money that these designer brands charge, my clothing better be dipped in gold and covered in diamonds.
Well, that’s what Victoria’s Secret finally did! According to Vogue, their newest bra took 685 hours of labor to make and features 6,500 precious gems, ranging from blue topaz and garnet to yellow sapphire, all set in 18-karat gold. In total, the combined weight of all the stones is just under 1,364 carats. Even the panties are dotted with 126 diamonds and 400 other precious stones.
The cost for this bad boy? Only a measly $2,000,000.
And who else would they get to model this work of modern art than the absolutely stunning Lily Aldridge. That’s got to be quite a task; wearing $2 million worth of jewelry on your private parts. Check out the photos and start stashing away some coins in your piggy bank if you want this piece. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with Lily wearing it.
