Jasmine Tookes is looking forward to breaking stereotypes associated with being a Victoria’s Secret Angel as she models the Fantasy Bra in this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is just around the corner and the fans already know the line-up for the models and the Angels in the show. This year, the Fantasy Bra will be modeled by the African American model Jasmine Tookes. 

Jasmine has already been in a photoshoot wearing the Fantasy Bra which has been crafted from 9000 gemstones. Reportedly, the Fantasy Bra is so heavy that it required Jasmine to do special back strengthening exercises for the show.

What many fans noticed in the photoshoot is that in some photos, with the light and camera angles, Jasmine’s stretch marks on her thighs were prominent.

Both the Victoria’s Secret and Tookes have not made any official statement about the untouched photos, many are speculating that this must be a part of the “body positive, anti-Photoshop movement” which is taking a hold of the fashion industry. To know that Jasmine is a part of that awareness is a great step towards breaking barriers. 

In addition, she is the third African American woman to wear the Fantasy Bra. The first two being SelitaEbanks and Tyra Banks. Jasmine sites both as her inspiration and admitted that she was proud and excited to be the third woman of colour to wear a Fantasy Bra.

Jasmine also said that she feels great that she inspires people to work out and take care of their bodies, according to Telegraph. She says that being on the Victoria’s Secret platform gives her a way to be able to help people with building a positive body image.
