How rich could a Nigerian woman be to budget N360million, which is the equivalent of $1million, just to purchase a bra, and what impact would it make, since it is an inner wear, meant for few, private eyes?
But that is exactly the amount she would have to pay to take delivery of the new Victoria’s Secret new sensation, the blinding diamond bra, which would be shown to the world on Thursday during the 2018 fashion show of the lingerie makers.
Twenty-nine-year-old Stockholm-born model, Elsa Hosk, would be stepping out on that day to model the creation, described as “a cropped bodice and body chain affixed with 2,100 Swarovski Created Diamonds set in sterling silver,” that took more than 930 hours to fashion the pieces, consisting of more than 71 carats.”
However, there is a consolation, for those who may not be able to cough out the $1million price tag, because a similar, Swarovski-studded style would be available on November 29 for $250, according to reports.
Hosk, was quoted to have said on Tuesday that when she tried on the bra during a fitting, “it was just a sensation that I’ve never felt before. My body was violently shaking. And it wasn’t because I was nervous, I was just excited. It was a cool feeling that I’ve never felt before. And it was definitely a moment that I’ll never forget.”
She added that it was “very cool, very simple, modern and so sparkly. If I would have designed it, it would have looked just like this. I put it on and I was like, ‘It looks like someone just made magic and put it on my body.’”
