Updated November 15, 2017: With only two weeks to go until the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Taylor Hill, Josephine Skriver and Lais Ribeiro (who wears this year’s Fantasy Bra!) are among the crew of supermodels who have packed their bags and jetted off to Shanghai. If there’s anything these girls have in common (other than their Angel status, of course), it’s their effortlessly chic airport style, with a few even going sans makeup—or should we say fresh-faced. Of course, the lovely ladies prove you can look just as radiant on a 14-hour flight as you do during your commute to work, thanks to an easy update of your fashion essentials (think an of-the-moment color or a pretty pair of weatherproof boots—and that’s not an oxymoron). Here, the Angels demonstrate how to get your wardrobe ready for takeoff.

You Have To See The Insane New Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra
Original post November 1, 2017: It's almost here: The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is less than a month away, and as the Angels pack their bags for Shanghai, one model must prepare for a major responsibility—that is, wearing the $2 million Fantasy Bra. This year's honor goes to Lais Ribeiro, the 27-year-old Brazilian beauty who officially earned her wings in 2015. In the cheeky announcement shoot for Vogue, she wears the Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra designed exclusively for the brand by world-renowned jeweler Mouawad.
Hand-embellished with diamonds, yellow sapphires and blue topaz, the cage-front decorative bra got its pairing with matching gold-leaf panties that Lais beautifully models in the video. (Fun fact: It took almost 350 hours to make the bra, which not only weighs in at more than 600 carats, but is adorned with nearly 6,000 precious gemstones—no small figure.) "You just feel so powerful wearing it, like all the hard work has paid off," she shared with Vogue on set at Pier 59 Studios. Beauty and humility—we'd say Victoria's Secret made the right choice.
