(Newser) – The wearer of this year's Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra has been revealed—after a bit of an "oops." The company had planned to unveil Alessandra Ambrosio as the lucky gal in its SoHo store tomorrow, but Ambrosio was accidentally seen wearing the bra—a bejeweled contraption worth $2.5 million—last week in an online Victoria's Secret video, the New York Post reports. The clip has since been cut, but apparently Victoria's Secret decided to just go with the flow, because Ambrosio tweeted yesterday that she will indeed wear the Fantasy Bra in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, airing Dec. 4.

“I just wanted to scream" upon being named to the coveted spot, Ambrosio tells People. "I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time." She describes the bra, which is crammed with amethysts, sapphires, rubies, and diamonds, as "very romantic." The bra and matching belt include more than 5,200 precious gems, the New York Daily News reports.
