Needless to say, she’s pumped about it. “I never cried so much in my entire life — and I have a baby,” Lais disclosed. “It was so emotional. I couldn’t believe it when they told me. It was so beautiful.”
Well.. this is no ordinary bra. Jeweller Mouawad covered it with 600 carats of diamonds, yellow sapphires, and blue topaz in a process that took almost 350 hours. It’s valued at $2 million, which is a million dollars less than last year’s Fantasy Bra.
