Victoria's Secret beauty Jasmine Tookes doesn't have to keep her big news under wraps anymore: she's been chosen to wear the brand's $3 million Fantasy Bra while working the runway at the 2016 show in Paris! The 25-year-old model has hidden her excitement since finding out five months ago, finally announcing the news on Wednesday (Oct. 26).
One special person who also had to keep mum? Jasmine's mother! "I definitely called my mom," she told Hello! during the reveal event at the new Victoria's Secret 5th Ave location in NYC. "I FaceTimed her and she was like ‘What can Jasmine possibly be FaceTiming me for with Ed [Razek] next to her, what did she do?' and then she dropped into tears."
Jasmine, admitted that she had the support of her fellow Angels during the overwhelming moment when she found out, but it was one special Fantasy Bra veteran who gave her the best advice. "I did speak to Lily Aldridge, and I'm like 'How do I walk? What do I do? How do I pose.' I’m still to this day thinking about how I’m going to walk down the runway. Do I smile? Do I blow a kiss? and she’s like, 'Just be calm. It’s one of the best nights of your life, just embrace it and be happy.'”
The "Bright Night" Fantasy Bra was designed by Eddie Borgo and hand-crafted with jewels by AWMouzannar. The emerald-and-diamond laced Beautiful by Victoria’s Secret bra, which was tailored just for Jasmine, features 9,000 precious gemstones and took almost 700 hours to make, weighing in at more than 450 carats. Past Fantasy Bra veterans include Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks and Miranda Kerr, who wore the bra just months after giving birth to her and Orlando Bloom's son Flynn.
As Jasmine and the other ladies prepare to jet to Paris, two Angels have instead been spending mommy-and-me time at home with their new babies: Behati Prinsloo and Candice Swanepoel. The California native shared whether she plans on donning her wings for the show: "I wish I knew. I feel like that would be tough to really get into it and come back, you know? I would just love to spend time with my baby."
Jasmine continued: "I spoke to them and they are just like 'I haven't been more in love with anybody in my whole life,' and I'm just so happy for them."
Even though Jasmine joined the ladies as an Angel in 2015, she has long been a fan of the production. "The show that sticks out to me the most is the one with Justin Timberlake when he did SexyBack because I’m such a big fan of his" she said. "I just remember Gisele [Bündchen] walking out the runway and she has the most amazing walk. That’s my show when I think of Victoria’s Secret."
On Monday it was announced that Bella Hadid will be joining Jasmine in Paris for fashion's sexiest night. Her debut comes a year after her older sister Gigi took her first walk while boyfriend The Weeknd serenaded the ladies. There is still no word on this year's performers, but check out Jasmine and Bella in fashion's main event on December 5 on CBS.
