Victoria's Secret Angel Lais Ribeiro gets emotional about wearing this year's $2 million Fantasy Bra

Lais Ribeiro is one lucky Angel!

In less than a month, the Brazilian bombshell will walk down the 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show runway in this year's "Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra." The $2 million bra, designed by Mouawad Jewelry, features diamonds, yellow sapphires and blue topaz with a caged-front effect thanks to a decorative necklace.

The 27-year-old model sat down with AOL Lifestyle at a celebratory dinner that took place at the iconic Gramercy Park Hotel to talk about "the biggest moment" of her career.


Lais revealed that she had absolutely "no idea" that she was chosen to wear the Fantasy Bra because they fitted her for the iconic bra without her realizing it. The design of the breathtaking bra is actually based on and inspired by the lingerie brand's new Demi bra. Designers gathered her measurements using the Demi bra, with the excuse that it was for another segment of the show.

Once Lais did find out, however, she was absolutely speechless: "I cried a lot, I couldn't believe it! I feel very honored and thankful."

She added: "Out of 60 girls, I was the one that was chosen. That means a lot."

The first people she told the life-changing news to? Her family.

"I called my family right away on the way home -- and they were all so excited. I was crying. They were crying. We were all crying. It was unbelievable."

This year's show will take place in Shanghai, China, for the first time, and Lais revealed she's especially excited to have more time in China to explore. The brunette beauty's whole family will be in attendance to watch her walk down the runway in the "Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra," making the momentous occasion that much more special.

Jasmine Tookes, Karlie Kloss and Taylor Hill are just some of the gorgeous models that will walk alongside Lais later this month.

Of course, Victoria's Secret models have some of the fiercest runway struts in the industry, so we had to ask Lais which model's walk she would love to emulate -- but she couldn't decide!

"It’s impossible to pick one. Adriana [Lima]. Alessandra [Ambrosio]. And, oh, Candice [Swanepoel]! ... It’s so hard to decide because we're all so different and we all bring our own personalities to the catwalk."
