Swarovski has revealed a lingerie set featuring 450,000 of its crystals for this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Paris.

Josephine Skriver will model the jewellery brand’s set which will include 3,000 strands of crystal fringe with each sleeve weighing about 4kg.

Entirely hand-made, the outfit includes baguette diamonds and emeralds with the sleeves alone taking about 600 hours of work, Yahoo reported.

The reveal follows the unveiling of a £2.4m, 9,000 gemstone bra which will also feature at the show on December 5.
