Modern Glamour Girl
Let's learn a little bit about the delightful Jasmine Tookes.
Jasmine was born on February 1, 1991, in Huntington Beach, California. She was a gymnast and volleyball player, but one day her mom, a celebrity fashion stylist, brought her along on a showroom appointment and somebody noticed the pretty girl.
That was it! Jasmine Tookes was on her way.
Jasmine's ancestry is European, African, Brazilian and West Indian.
A veteran of the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows, Jasmine has appeared in the 2012, 2013, 2 2015 and 2016 shows.
She has starred in advertising campaigns for Victoria's Secret, and became an Angel in 2015.
For the 2016 show, Tookes was chosen to wear the $3 million Fantasy Bra, one of the highest accolades an Angel can receive.
Jasmine has been on some top covers:
- 2011: French Revue de Modes, Fall/Winter 2011
- 2012: Lurve #6, September
- 2013: Elle France, 22 February
- 2016: Vogue Spain; Harper's Bazaar VN 5th Anniversary
Jasmine does several top editorials every year. Those include Vogue Italy (several times), Numéro France, Elle France, Elle UK, Elle USA, and Vogue Spain, among others.
Jasmine's advertising campaigns, besides Victoria's Secret, include Ugg, Gap, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Jimmy Choo, DKNY, and Kate Spade.
Jasmine learned that she had been chosen to wear the Fantasy Bra a full five months before it was announced in October 2016:
It was so hard to keep this a secret because it's something so exciting that you want to share with everybody, so for me to keep my mouth shut I literally had to bite my tongue every time I wanted to say it.
Jasmine's favorite Victoria's Secret Fashion Show as the 2006 one, when she was just starting out in modeling. She loved one moment in particular:
when Justin Timberlake was performing and he did 'Sexyback' and Gisele walks out. That's my favorite ever!
The third woman of color to wear the fantasy bra - after Tyra Banks (1997, 2004) and Selita Ebanks (2007) - Jasmine says that Banks is her personal heroine. Of course, Brazilian Adriana Lima (2008, 2010) also has worn the Fantasy Bra, so it depends how you define things.
Commercials were Jasmine's start at the upper tiers of the business. She later appeared in the Ready to Wear - Spring/Summer 20009 show for Lauren Conrad and Tulle & Cloth Logic. After that, she landed campaigns for Gap and DKNY in 2010. In 2011, Jasmine did DKNY again, and a special for Italian Vogue. After that, she was booked for the Spring 2012 runways.
