Meet Jasmine Tookes, the ex-Victoria’s Secret model who just got married in a fairy tale wedding and hopes to launch a brand rivalling Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty
Former Victoria’s Secret Angel Jasmine Tookes is now one of the world’s most influential models since starting her career at age 15, and she’s showing no signs of slowing down.
We take a look back at the highlights of Jasmine Tookes’ career, and how her high-profile romance with Borrero unfolded.
Tookes met her future husband back in 2016 when the pair worked together on a Snapchat project. The social media app was getting ready to launch a new feature called Group Stories, and the company hired Tookes to help promote it, according to Vogue.
After publicly announcing their relationship, Tookes gave a glimpse of their cute dates, fancy holidays and day-to-day life together on Instagram, much to her fans’ delight.
In addition to her seemingly blissful romantic relationship, Tookes is also enjoying stellar success in her career right now. As the daughter of celebrity fashion stylist Cary Danielle Robinson, Tookes is no stranger to the fashion industry. In fact, she was discovered during one of her mother’s showroom appointments.
In 2015, Tookes was chosen to become a Victoria’s Secret model and, a year later, she became the third model of colour to wear the US$3 million Fantasy Bra at the 2016 Victoria’s Secret show.
As one of the highest-paid former Victoria’s Secret models, it’s probably no surprise that Tookes was able to sign attractive advertisement deals with Lancôme and Calvin Klein, to name a few, since hanging up her Angel wings. She’s also continued to model for high profile fashion magazines, and, according to Celebrity Net Worth, she is now worth an estimated US$5 million.
