VS Angel to debut emerald and diamond lingerie in Paris fashion show

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion show may be taking place in Paris this year, but one piece of lingerie screams Emerald City.

The “Bright Night” Fantasy bra, designed by Eddie Borgo, is encrusted with diamonds and emeralds. A.W. Mouzannar constructed the bra which costs a cool $3 million.

VS rookie Jasmine Tookes will be modeling the bra in Paris at the VS Fashion show, People.com reports.

“I don’t think I’ve worn any item worth $3 million, especially on my breasts — which is even more cool,” Tookes said. 

The moment Tookes learned she’d be wearing the bra was caught on film. She later posted the two videos with her reaction to Instagram.

Words can not express my excitement for this day. I have been waiting 5 months to share this amazing news with you! As a little girl every year I would sit and watch the vsfs and would always say to myself and my family one day I will be up there. I worked my ass off to be able to accomplish that goal and that dream came true 5 years ago. Never in a million years did I imagine myself wearing a 3 million dollar fantasy bra. It blows my mind that I am joining a list of women(Tyra, Gisele & Heidi) who I have looked up to my whole life and it is truly an honor to follow in their footsteps. It is also a milestone for Victoria’s Secret to have a woman of color wearing the bra this year because there have only been two in the past & I am so happy to represent that for the brand and women out there. I hope that I can be as much of an inspiration to young girls as these girls were for me. Every time I see this video I begin to cry… this truly means the world to me and it is proof that with hard work, dedication & a positive attitude that you can accomplish anything you want in your life. @ed_razek I don’t know how many more times I can thank you but I’m going to be saying it again and again for a very long time☺️ THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.. You have made my childhood dreams come true over and over again. I still pinch myself everyday!!!! The day this was announced you really got me 🙈 I was so overwhelmed with emotion and love from my whole VS family. I love you all so much!!! Also, a huge thank you to all my girls and @imgmodels @sbermood For being the most supportive and loving people out there. I couldn’t do this without you all!! Thanks again to @ed_razek, Monica Mitro & everyone at Victoria’s Secret for giving me your constant support!!!!
