Update, November 5: Who could use some eye candy to brighten up their Monday? This should do the trick: This year's Victoria's Secret Dream Angels Fantasy Bra has officially been revealed. Elsa Hosk is the lucky Angel to wear the bra this year, which was made by Atelier Swarovski and boasts a whopping 2100 Swarovski-created diamonds totaling 71 carats. Per a press release, the bra took four craftsmen 930 hours to make and is valued at an impressive $1 million. 

Previous wearers of the Fantasy Bra include Gisele Bündchen, Tyra Banks, and Heidi Klum, so you know Hosk is in good company. If you don't have a $1 million lingerie budget, Victoria's Secret has announced that a version of the Fantasy Bra will be available in stores and on its website on November 29. The bra will boast Swarovski crystals and will retail for $250. Scroll down to see the million-dollar sparkling bra for yourself.

Originally published on September 10, 2018: You've just started accepting the fact that summer has come and gone, and now Victoria's Secret wants you to look ahead to the holiday season. The retailer has already confirmed a handful of models to walk in its annual fashion show extravaganza in December, and it's getting us excited for the over-the-top event.

One of the highlights of the announcements: Winnie Harlow has officially secured her first-ever spot in the show. "I had a break down before I walked into the most nerve wrecking casting of my life," she explained on Instagram. "I asked my driver to go around the block twice before I could walk into the @VictoriasSecret offices so I could recoup, and remember (while my trainer @bodybymato reminded me on the phone through sobs … how hard I’ve been working!"

I had a break down before i walked into the most nerve wrecking casting of my life. I asked my driver to go around the block twice before i could walk into the @VictoriasSecret offices so i could re coup, and remember (while my trainer @bodybymato reminded me on the phone through sobs - thank you lol) how hard I’ve been working! I went in and made new friends and saw old friends and it already felt like home! We patiently waited while @ed_razek @johndavidpfeiffer @monica.mitro @10magazine carefully took time to get to know each girl. When it was finally my time, within my nervous storm of anticipation i changed into a black Victoria Secret set and stepped out!!!! I spoke to them about Jamaica, @nick_knight , my abs, and how i was beyond honoured to be given the opportunity to try out.. then I walked for my life!!!! I can’t believe this!!
