Political Turmoil and Victoria Secret’s Big Reveal

As Muslims and the world at large suffer yet another lone wolf terrorist attack this time in NYC, the folks at Victoria’s Secret are busy with their big reveal, the 2017 fantasy bra, to be worn on the Victoria’s Secret runway in Shanghai on November 20, 2017.

The $2 million dollar jewel-encrusted brassiere, the ‘jewel’ of the show will be entrusted to 27 year old Victoria’s Secret model Lais Ribeiro, a huge honor in the ‘fantasy’ world of lingerie fashion.

Don’t get us wrong, we write about fashion all day long and do see the value of the industry. It is ultimately a very accurate tool in gauging customer confidence and morale. When things get a little ridiculous however we at CIIN get a little cynical…

The Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra designed by Lebanese/Saudi jeweller Mouawad is encrusted with 600 carats and over 6000 precious stones, all set by hand. The $2 million dollar piece is one third less expensive than last year’s bra that came in at $3 million.

Just in case you were wondering, the bra is matched to a pair of gold leaf panties! The show will air on CBS on November 28, 2017.
