Each also includes arm, leg, stomach and neck pieces.New York--Every year before its fashion show, Victoria’s Secret unveils a gem-adorned “Fantasy Bra,” many times created in collaboration with renowned jeweler Mouawad.

For 2014, the company has announced that for the first time it is doubling up on the fantasy, having had two Dream Angels Fantasy Bras crafted.

Both are valued at $2 million each and together are adorned with more than 16,000 gems total. Accompanying the bras are arm, leg, stomach and neck pieces of fine gemstones, strung together on 18-karat gold chains.

Victoria’s Secret said that the bras took more than 1,380 hours to create, as each is handset with rubies, diamonds, and blue and light blue sapphires.

Also for the first time, two different models will wear the bras and body pieces. Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio will walk the runway in them for the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which is set to air on CBS Dec. 9.

Both Lima and Ambrosio have worn the Fantasy Bra before; Lima did it in 2008 and again in 2012, while Ambrosio was chosen to wear the bra in 2012.

Other supermodels who have donned it include Candice Swanepoel, Tyra Banks, Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Klum, and Claudia Schiffer.

Last year’s bra was adorned with more than 4,200 precious gemstones including rubies, diamonds and yellow sapphires and a 52-carat pear-shaped ruby, valued at $10 million.
