Jasmine Tookes (born February 1, 1991[2]) is an American model.

Early life[edit]

Tookes was born and raised in Huntington Beach, California.[3] She has a younger sister, who is 19 years her junior.[3] 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.[3] Her mother is a celebrity fashion stylist.[3] Tookes was discovered at one of her mother's showroom appointments.[3]

Career[edit]

Tookes' first commercial ad campaigns were in 2010 for Ugg boots and Gap.[3] Before breaking out on the international scene, she booked a Spring 2011 DKNY campaign and a layout in Vogue Italia.[3] According to Page six of The New York Post, when Oprah Winfrey saw Tookes perform on the catwalk in October 2011 at the "Lincoln Center Presents: An Evening With Ralph Lauren", Winfrey extolled Tookes' buttery soft skin and requested that Tookes "Rub your face against mine."[4] Models.com named Tookes as one of the top 10 new models in a September 27, 2011 fashion week post.[5] Tookes was selected by Style as its top new model in November 2011 based on her work for the Spring Fashion Shows.[6][7] She was one of eleven new models for the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 2012.[8] The 2012 show was taped in November and broadcast on the CBS network on December 4.[9] The night before the airing of the fashion show, Tookes and fellow Victoria's Secret models Behati Prinsloo and Jacquelyn Jablonski guest starred on the December 3 "Ha'awe Make Loa" episode of CBS' Hawaii Five-0.[10] French Vogue named her as one of its 10 New faces from fall/winter 2012-2013 Fashion Week.[11] Her runway experience includes Calvin Klein, Tom Ford, Prada, Miu Miu and Versace.[5]
