Recession, what recession?

Victoria's Secret is charging full speed ahead, despite the state of the economy, with its Fantasy Bra. This year's diamond masterpiece is a $3 million dazzler.

The lingerie giant just announced that Marisa Miller will be modeling the annually commissioned diamond-encrusted bra -- this is Miller's first time filling the million dollar cups.

Specially created by Damiani, "The Harlequin Fantasy Bra" will be featured in both the 2009 Victoria's Secret Christmas Dreams & Fantasies Catalogue, arriving in mailboxes today, and on the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show runway Dec. 1.

Suffice it to say, the California beauty will be worth her weight in diamonds, as the revealing bra features a whopping 16-carat heart-shaped champagne diamond pendant and 2,350 brilliant-cut white, champagne and cognac diamonds embroidered onto the Very Sexy Plunge multi-way bra.

Created by a team of 15 designers and craftspeople, the pricey bra took 100 hours of research and development in addition to 800 hours of labor to complete.

How's that for attention to detail?
