Miranda KerrVictoria's Secret angel Miranda Kerr gave a preview of the handmade, $2.5-million bra that she will wear during next month's Victoria's Secret catwalk extravaganza. The bra (shown on a mannequin -- most people will have to wait until the show, slated to air Nov. 29 on CBS, to see Kerr model it) reportedly took London Jewelers in Long Island, NY 500 hours to hand-sew on 3,400 gems -- including  diamonds, pearls, citrines and aquamarines. It also has a tassel centerpiece adorned with two 8-carat white diamonds and two yellow 14-carat diamonds.

Fashionable First Lady Michelle Obama explained her wardrobe philosophy: “I have to wear what I love,” she said. “I have to feel good in it. My day-to-day wardrobe choices are very practical. I’m like, ‘What’s the temperature?’ ‘Am I going to be sitting in the grass?’ ‘Will I be playing with kids?’ ‘Can I sit on the floor?'" [People]
