Lais Ribiero is set to wear the Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra in this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
The 27-year-old model, who acquired her angel wings in 2015 after gracing the runway for the lingerie giant for over five years from 2010, has announced on social media she has been granted the greatest honour as she has been handpicked to wear the highly coveted, embellished underwear set at the annual catwalk extravaganza this month, which will take place on November 20 in Shanghai, China.
And the star has revealed she has kept the exciting news a secret for ''too long'', but she is ''beyond honoured'' to wear the showstopping centerpiece, which will be made of gold leaf and have sapphire embellishment.
Alongside a picture of the brunette beauty in an bedazzled bra, which she shared on her Instagram account on Wednesday (01.11.17), she wrote: ''I've been holding this secret for too long and I am beyond honored to announce that I will be wearing the Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra this year! I am very happy and thankful for my Victoria's Secret family for trusting me and all the support from my on family, friends and fans! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! its official!! (sic).''
Lais - who has son Alexandre - has admitted she feels ''so powerful'' wearing the unique design, which will come with its own belt attached.
She told Vogue Online: ''You just feel so powerful wearing it, like all the hard work has paid off.''
However, Lais has revealed she had ''no idea'' she was going to be asked to wear the outfit and take centre stage on the runway later this month, but when she found out about the news during her bra fitting she broke down and cried.
Speaking about her reaction, she said: ''I had no idea that [the fitting] was for the bra. I came in and when I tried it I cried, it was unbelievable.
''I love the colours on my skin tone and the big stones.''
