Jasmine Tookes, a Californian model, has been announced as the model who will wear the Fantasy Bra during this year’s Victoria’s Secret catwalk show.
The 21-year-old star will join in the ranks of supermodels including Gisele Bündchen, Claudia Schiffer, and Tyra Banks who have wore the bra historically.
Jasmine was announced as the model of the moment this afternoon, and told Vogue.co.uk: “When they told me, I was so caught off guard, I thought I was just doing an interview, and Ed [Razek, Victoria’s Secret chief marketing officer] kind of sprung it on me.
“It’s such an honour for me to join a whole group of women who are icons, and who I grew up watching over the years.”
It’s rumoured that Tyra Banks is one of those models Jasmine used to aspire to as a child.
The model kicked off her career with commercial ad campaigns for Ugg and Gap back in 2010.
The Californian girl has since appeared in campaigns for Jimmy Choo, Calvin Klein, Lancôme and DKNY – to name just a few.
Jasmine joined Victoria’s Secret as an Angel last year and has flourished since.
Speaking about the addition of emeralds to the classic Fantasy Bra, Jasmine said: “They are one of my favourite gemstones – I have a lot of rings that have emeralds on them, so this matches perfectly with my jewellery collection
“I’m a girl who loves diamonds, so this is perfect for me.”
Designer of the infamous bra Eddie Borgo said: “It was important to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show collection team that the design represented some of the different iconography, shapes, and techniques that we use consistently within my namesake collection.
“I had never worked with traditional emeralds before, and, due to their fragility, they are not used often today.
“The colour of a true emerald is inimitable.”
