She must be on Santa’s good list! Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr has been chosen by the brand to model the iconic Fantasy Treasure Bra — a $2.5 million diamond-studded piece — in the Christmas Dreams & Fantasies catalogue and during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in November.

“It’s such an honor to wear the bra,” Kerr tells PEOPLE. “And it’s such a piece of artwork! It’s absolutely stunning — it kind of feels a little mermaid-like — but I can’t believe I’m wearing $2.5 million on my chest.”

The aqua push-up brassiere, created in part by Long Island’s London Jewelers, is handset with nearly 3,400 precious gems, including 142 carats of white and yellow diamonds, pearls, faceted citrines and aquamarines, all set in 18-karat white and yellow gold. The centerpiece features two white diamonds — each more than 8 carats — and two 14-plus-carat yellow diamonds.

“We put a lot of love into this bra,” jeweler Candy Udell tells PEOPLE. Adds daughter Randi, “We put a lot of our most favorite elements into it, such as the tassel — it’ll be wonderful with her walking down the runway, the tassel swinging with her body. We thought about the runway show, and what would catch everyone’s attention.”

The runway show will be a very special moment for Kerr: aside from wearing the Fantasy Treasure Bra, she’ll be returning to the Victoria’s Secret catwalk after taking a one-year hiatus while she was pregnant with son Flynn. “It’s very special,” she says of rejoining the show. “And now I feel better than ever. I feel healthier than I’ve ever felt. It was wonderful to have a bit of time off after I was pregnant and having Flynn. But now I’m back in the swing of things and it feels good.”

In fact, you could say it feels really good. “I feel like more than $1 million,” she jokes. “I feel like $2.5 million.”

I haven’t come across the idiotic comments questioning Miranda on wearing it, luckily most people have their head screwed on straight per the comments I’ve read – it’s her damn job and it pays her well to look after her family, why would she turn that down? It is an Angel privilege and they’ve had these diamond bras for years. She’s not buying it!

Though as for those moaning about her ‘fake boobs’ and her diservice to women. She’s just had a baby and is wearing a push-up bra. They’re most likely not fake – newsflash some people have boobs that actually look like that. Heck I did a few years ago and I’m no model!

Who cares? on

Meanwhile….millions of people are starving, homeless, destitute….but who cares, cos Miranda Kerr, who is so much more special than those people has been chosen to wear a ridiculous piece of clothing….

(My conscience wouldn’t allow me to wear something so frivolous…)

she looks great after having a baby. she is always beautiful and glad she will be in the victorias secret show again this year. as for the bra- it is something they do every year and i think she is just saying she is honored they chose her to wear it this year. you would feel great if someone choose you to wear something so valuable. that doesn’t make her lame or not “level-minded.” congratulations to her on her happiness. people need to stop being so negative/judgemental.

Come on people, don’t be so harsh with her! She’s just MODELING it, showing it, not that she bought it! And sometimes these pieces are only taken as “art” I don’t think one can really buy it to wear it.

And she’s not so skinny, she’s a mom, so her child really “consumes” her, at least that’s what happens to me with breast feeding.
