Jasmine Tookes Will Rock The Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra During 2016 Fashion Show

October 29, 2016  |  

If anyone out there keeps up with the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, they know two things: it’s seriously one of the most coveted gigs ever and if you ever get to model the Fantasy Bra – the brand’s highest honor – you’ve reached nirvana or something pretty damn close to it.

This year, that crown of an accomplishment goes to model Jasmine Tookes, who just signed a contract that made her an official Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2015.

“I never thought I would have this opportunity to wear a $3 million bra, so this is still mind blowing to me,” Tookes said, both excited and shocked about rocking the Eddie Borgo-designed bra. “I just wanted to be on the runway and be an Angel, so now that I get to do this — it’s insane.”

This announcement makes Tookes the third ever woman of color to do so in Victoria’s Secret history, following Selita Ebanks and Tyra Banks, whom Tookes says she looked up to growing up.

 “I feel like it’s such a milestone for Victoria’s Secret to have a woman of color wearing the fantasy bra, because there’s only been two in the past, and the last one was almost 10 years ago,” she continued. “It’s major, and I think it’s awesome I get to represent that.”
Congrats, Tookes!
