The fashion show isn’t until next week. But fans dying to see the Victoria’s Secret Models 2016 do the catwalk will have to find ingenious ways to tide them over til then. And if you think yearbook photos are lame and boring, nothing can be further from the truth.
The models landed in Paris this weekend and got down to work Monday afternoon. Taking the Grand Palais as the backdrop for their big yearbook style snapshot. The 2016 Victoria Secret Angels all wore black shirts reading “Victoria’s Secret Paris 2016.” They paired it with skinny jeans, booties and choker necklaces.
The vets could easily be spotted including Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Lily Aldridge, Elsa Hosk and Jasmine Tookes who’s fortunate to wear this year’s Fantasy Bra. They were surrounded by newbies Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid, per People magazine.
Jasmine Tookes and the $3 Million Fantasy Bra
Come Wednesday evening, Jasmine Tookes will do her catwalk donning the $3million Fantasy bra which is the pinnacle of every Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. The past years the honor was given to British model Lily Aldridge and Brazilian angels like Gisele Bundchen, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio.
When the brand revealed Tookes to be the ‘chosen one’, images from the shoot showed her on a velvet sofa in knickers and the bra. This was crafted from 9,000 gemstones and its weight required her to do back strengthening exercises. But it’s easy to notice in some angles Tooke’s visible stretch marks on the upper thighs. The model nor brand released any public statement about the issue. But if they allowed these photos released, it seemed they do recognize that supermodels aren’t perfect at all, and that yes, that’s perfectly fine.
It’s been nine years since a black woman was chosen to be the model of the Fantasy bra since Tyra Banks and Selita Ebanks. Tookes felt like it’s a milestone for the brand to have a woman of color wearing the Fantasy bra, since there were only two in the past. She thinks it’s major,
and she thinks it is an awesome idea to be able to represent that, as noted by Telegraph.
