Jasmine Tookes has just been confirmed as the lucky model set to wear the Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra at its annual fashion show this year. It is the crowning jewel in the 25-year-old's glittering fashion career.
The bra, which is adorned with over 9,000 precious gems, has been handset with diamonds and emeralds in 18-karat gold and weighs more than 450 carats. Jasmine supposedly had to sit in plaster for three hours so VS could create a mould they could design around.
But the California native is no stranger to wearing beautiful creations. As well as her high-profile role as one of the U.S. lingerie brand's Angels, a title she has held since 2015, she has also carved out a successful career in high fashion, walking for Chanel, Oscar de la Renta and DKNY during the spring/summer 2017 season earlier this fall. Her all-American appeal has previously seen her take to the catwalk for brands including Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein, as well as edgier labels such as Reem Acra and Public School.
She has featured in high-profile advertising campaigns for Lancome, Jimmy Choo, and of course, Victoria's Secret, and her magazine covers include Spanish Vogue and French Elle. She is represented by the agency IMG, which counts fellow superstars Gigi Hadid and Gisele Bundchen on its books, and with 1.3 million Instagram followers and counting, we can expect to see a lot more of her in the future.
