Victoria's Secret fashion show: Viva Bra-zil
Brazilian models Adriana Lima (L) and Alessandra Ambrosio walk the runway wearing the $2.6 million Fantasy bras during the 2014 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show at Earl's Court exhibition centre in London.

It's that time of the year when diamond- and ruby-studded bras become the rage.

Yes, it was the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in London on Tuesday night (yesterday morning, Singapore time).

And as usual, the world's most enviable bodies put up a show that took glitz to another level.

Some 40 models, who are considered the world's richest, strutted the latest lingerie designs in a way only they could.

But it was the US$2 million (S$2.6 million) Dream Angels Fantasy Bras which took centre stage.

There were two of those on display, worn by top models Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima, the Mail Online reported.

Each of this year's designs was made by Mouawad jewellers using 16,000 rubies, diamonds and sapphires, which were strung together with 18 karat gold.

The ornate ensembles took the designers more than 1,380 hours to make.

Lima, 33, wore the blue and silver version of the swanky lingerie, her toned body bedecked in intricate jewellery across her decolletage, down her torso and over her slim hips.

Ambrosio, also 33, wore a red bra, and was covered in even more body jewellery than her colleague, accentuating her enviably trim shape, flat stomach and muscular yet lean thighs.

Ed Sheeran was the lucky performer who got to sing for the sexy stars as they made their way down the runway.

Other favourites doing the catwalk were Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes, Lily Aldridge and Behati Prinsloo.

Kroes looked glorious in a bra top and knickers while covered up in a sheer, peach dressing gown with delicate patterns, as her fellow models donned a selection of fantastical underwear in pale shades.

The 29-year-old Dutch model gave birth to her second child just five months ago, but she proudly displayed her svelte post-baby figure on the runway with panache, with not an extra ounce on her.

Apart from Sheeran, Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande also performed.
