For many famous faces, it’s the high-profile Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show that created and launched their super-model-turned-household-name status. Since the first Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show at New York’s Plaza Hotel in 1995, its catwalk creations have sparked careers for Stephanie Seymour, Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Giselle Bündchen and Alessandra Ambrosio.
Once a catalog-only bra starting at $1 million in 1996, the Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra has kept consumers on the edge of their seats in anticipation of the bedazzled, multi-million dollar marvel, as each year becomes more embellished with precious jewels including rubies, sapphires and diamonds.
The outrageous fashions on the Victoria’s Secret catwalk never disappoint and are notorious to be water cooler discussions the next day.
