Um, is it just us or was the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show ~seriously~ next level this year? Not just ‘cos of the epic performances by Lady Gaga and The Weeknd.
Not just ‘cos of the stellar line-up (Gigi, Bella and Kendall were lookin’ fiyah!).
It was something else...
And we’ve figured out what the something was… it was this:
Yep, it was the dollar dollar billz.
VS Show executive producer, Edward Razek told The New York Times that they upped the budget majorly this year, spending over $20 million to make the show spectacular.
While that number may sound ridic, you can totally see where the money went.
The event was held at the Grand Palais which sure ain’t cheap, plus the 43 pairs of delicate wings, the infamous $3 million fantasy bra and of course all of the gorj models and performers.
VS has worked with leading jewellery designer, Mouawad, for 16 years but this year, a lot more dosh went into the designs.
The brand tizzed the girls up in real jewelled appliqués, for example, Lily Aldridge (below) rocked Mouawad’s Blue Iris Diamond and Sapphire suite, including earrings, a necklace and bracelet made with 18-karat white gold.
The entire ensemble is valued at a whopping $892,000.
These epic jewelled pieces can contain up to 150 carats and can take months and months to prepare.
Victoria’s Secret wanted to enhance the magic this year and if you ask us, ~mission accomplished~!
