IN TOUGH TIMES, EVEN FANTASY BRAS COST LESS

Article excerpted from modelsblog.info

Most of us will be taking stock of the credit crunch and gearing up for a looming recession.

But for those still miraculously immune to the financial downturn you could do far worse than invest in this jewel-encrusted bra worth a staggering $5.2million.

Supermodel Adriana Lima is sporting Victoria’s Secret’s latest bra which is encrusted with nearly 3,900 precious gems, thousands of tiny black diamonds, 117 one-carat round diamonds and 34 rubies.

The lavish item is finished off with a spectacular pair of 100-carat black diamond drops. The Black Diamond Miracle Bra is also crafted to give maximum cleavage lift.

U.S. lingerie firm Victoria’s Secret certainly doesn’t do things by half. Their catwalk show is reportedly the sexiest event in the fashion calendar.  This year’s big-budget extravaganza featured live music from top artists and flamboyant accessories, including angel and bird wings.

It saw the reformed Spice Girls take to the stage in Roberto Cavalli gowns and one of the Victoria’s Secret ‘Angels’ Heidi Klum duet with husband Seal.

But, as reports flood in of worried savers stocking up on gold, the bank-busting bra could perhaps be described as a sound investment. This way, women can keep their savings in a Victoria’s Secret hiding place.
