Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima have both been working the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show runway together for 15 years. For more than a decade, they’ve worked together very closely and are now close friends. On Tuesday night, the two partnered up to wear the Fantasy Bras, which cost more than $2 million each.
One in red, the other in blue, the lingerie sets mirror each other. They contain 16,000 gems and are accompanied by 18-karat-gold-strung jeweled body pieces. While the looks are certainly special, wearing a one-of-a-kind ensemble is even better with your BFF by your side.

The pair, who are both 33 years old and come from Brazil, have known each other since they’ve been teenagers. “I’m just glad that I’ve always had a friend and a companion to share this amazing experience we’ve had,” Ambrosio said on the show Tuesday night. "We are good friends, moms, and from Brazil, so it has been amazing sharing this experience with her.” The two have grown up together and have two kids each, who are doing the same.
Ed Razek, the Senior Creative for Victoria’s Secret, called them two of the greatest models in the history of the world and noted on the show that the contributions they’ve made to the brand over the years is incalculable. Razek also added that Victoria’s Secret’s way of thanking the two models is by outfitting them in the extremely expensive lingerie together.

Ambrosio and Lima proved that they were more than deserving of the honor when they walked out together to Ed Sheeran performing his hit “Thinking Out Loud.” Opening up the Exotic Traveler segment, they held hands as they strutted the catwalk and even high-fived. They each wore silk capes that dramatically trailed behind them with the help of a wind machine, and at the end of the runway, each blew the signature Victoria’s Secret air kiss to the crowd.
Not only was the audience roaring when they walked out, social media was all-abuzz with how amazing Ambrosio and Lima looked. Their names were even trending worldwide on Twitter during the show’s broadcast.
Year after year, the designers at Victoria’s Secret attempt to top themselves with a better Fantasy Bra; but as many have noted, these two will be hard to beat.
