In a stunt designed to drum up publicity for The Victoria's Secret Fashion show next month, VS Angel Adriana Lima recently hit the pink carpet in New York to model the lingerie giant's latest Fantasy Bra: a diamond-studded creation worth $2 million.

The Bombshell Fantasy Bra contains over 3,000 jewels, including 142 carats of white diamonds, sapphires, and topazes. Italian jeweller Damiani designed the astoundingly expensive garment and Victoria's Secret reports that it took craftsmen 1,500 hours to create the bling bra. Though diamonds, which are the hardest natural substance on Earth, don't sound particularly cozy, Lima said that the bra was "very comfortable."

Adriana will don the bra once more for The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show taking place in New York City on November 30.

This is the second time Lima was chosen to model Victoria Secret's Fantasy Bra, a bejeweled garment designed to promote the annual fashion show and serve as the event's centerpiece. In 2008, Lima wore the Black Diamond Fantasy Miracle Bra which was valued at $5 million. The most valuable Fantasy Bra was the Red Hot Fantasy Bra/Panties which were valued at an astounding $15 million.
