Each year, the Victoria’s Secret Angels supposedly descend from heaven in honor of the lingerie giant’s fashion extravaganza. It is not only the brand’s leggy ambassadors who form a key component of the annual televised runway celebrations – the show also highlights another star in its own right: the Fantasy Bra.
The flamboyant bra that is synonymous with seven figures at least, was introduced by Victoria’s Secret in 1996. Twenty years later the bejeweled Fantasy Bra is still going strong, decked out in dazzling gems.
This year’s Fantasy Bra, named the “Bright Night Fantasy Bra”  the 700-hour creation of American jewelry designer Eddie Borgo is made of 9,000 precious stones and weighing 450 carats of 18K gold. BTW, it carries a $3 million price tag. 
Wearing the fantasy bra is considered an honour and this year, 25-year-old model Jasmine Tookes who joined the Victoria's Secret roster of Angels in 2015 will be strutting the emerald and diamond encrusted piece down the catwalk in Paris, France this month itself. 
I want, I want, I want!!!
Last evening, I was at the KDU University College campus in PJ's Damansara Jaya. Originally, I was only intending to sit back and relax and enjoy the meeting given that the speech slots and/or meeting roles were full.
But lo and behold, I had a speaking opportunity just before the meeting commenced. Not one to turn down this lucky chance, I took it and delivered a CC #2 speech titled "The Indian Virus" – my CC round #39. Thank you, Henry Fu!
