You may not know who Jasmine Tookes is at this very moment, but after the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, you should.
Tookes will once again grace the runway at this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. She’ll be sponspored by Swarovski Sparkles. She officially became a Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2015. A year later, she was the angel chosen to wear the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Fantasy Bra (worth a whopping $3 million) at the 2016 show.
Jasmine Tookes, born February 1, 1991, is an American model who was raised in Huntington Beach, California. Tookes has a younger sister, who is 19 years her junior. She did gymnastics for ten years and was also active in volleyball and softball before she became a model at about the age of 15. Her mother is a celebrity fashion stylist, which was beneficial for Tookes, as she was discovered at one of her mother’s showroom appointments.

The 25-year-old model may have the biggest job in the entire show: modeling the $3 million Fantasy Bra. Tookes has also been harassed by trolls, as many prominent women and women of color have, who recently accused her of bleaching her skin. She responded with grace on Twitter. “Just CRAZY!!! I love my skin! It’s my favorite thing about myself,” she tweeted.
