untitled-7Reuters: Victoria’s Secret angel Jasmine Tookes earns wings and diamonds for the 2016 runway show.

The model has been selected to wear the $3 million dollar fantasy bra during the companies’ annual show and gave the press a sneak peak on Tuesday (1).

“It is such an honor to be wearing the Bright Night Fantasy Bra this year. It is more stunning than ever and I feel so blessed to be joining a list of supermodels in the past,” said Tookes, who only became an angel last year.

Models who have worn the bra in the past include Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum and Lily Aldridge.

The brassiere is adorned with emeralds and diamonds weighing more than 450 carats, set in 18-karat gold and was custom made to fit Tookes. “First I had a molding of my upper body were I had to sit for three hours and be still, I could barely even breath so that it would be perfect. And then they take that molding and build a bra on top of it. And then my first time seeing the bra, I saw it without actually diamonds,” said Tookes.

“Then when I saw it without diamonds I was like, ‘oh, my gosh, this bra is so beautiful, it sparkles from every angle,’” added Tookes.

This year, the U.S. based company will hold the show in France’s captiol.

“We’ve been in a lot of exciting places but Paris seemed like the perfect place for us to go this year and this time. It’s the capitol of fashion, it’s an exciting city, our models know Paris, we know Paris. It’s just a very exciting place for us to be,” explained co-executive producer, Monica Mitro.

w, Bruno Mars and The Weeknd will share the runway with the models for special performances.

“We’re really excited to work with all three of them and it’s going to be a great collaboration. So we’re working out which songs, and which sections, and who’s coming out when. There is always some interaction with the models and the musical artist, so there is still a lot to do,” said Mitro.

Forty-seven models will walk in the show that will feature 75 looks, split into six sections starting with ‘The Road Ahead’ and ending with ‘Bright-Night Angel.’

The runway show will be taped at The Grand Palais des Champs-Élysées on November 30 and air on the U.S. network CBS on December 5, eventually broadcasting in 190 countries.
