It’s that time of the year again, when we get to ogle over the beautiful Victoria’s Secret Angels during the most anticipated runway show of the year. And, the most awaited look of all is the Fantasy Bra, which just wows us every single time.
This year, the coveted spot went to the gorgeous Jasmine Tookes. The 24-year-old model just joined the VS family last year but she was soon awarded the special role. The stunning California native is the first woman of color to don the Fantasy Bra after nine years! Jasmine is the third woman of color to wear the Fantasy Bra, following both Tyra Banks and Selita Ebanks.
In the unveiling, Tookes showcased the $3 million bra named Bright Night Fantasy. The stunning piece features 9,000 diamonds and emeralds, with more than 450 carats of 18K gold. According to designer Eddie Borgo, the bejewelled brassiere took more than 700 hours to create.

Words can not express my excitement for this day. I have been waiting 5 months to share this amazing news with you! As a little girl every year I would sit and watch the vsfs and would always say to myself and my family one day I will be up there. I worked my ass off to be able to accomplish that goal and that dream came true 5 years ago. Never in a million years did I imagine myself wearing a 3 million dollar fantasy bra. It blows my mind that I am joining a list of women(Tyra, Gisele & Heidi) who I have looked up to my whole life and it is truly an honor to follow in their footsteps. It is also a milestone for Victoria’s Secret to have a woman of color wearing the bra this year because there have only been two in the past & I am so happy to represent that for the brand and women out there. I hope that I can be as much of an inspiration to young girls as these girls were for me. Every time I see this video I begin to cry… this truly means the world to me and it is proof that with hard work, dedication & a positive attitude that you can accomplish anything you want in your life. @ed_razek I don’t know how many more times I can thank you but I’m going to be saying it again and again for a very long time☺️ THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.. You have made my childhood dreams come true over and over again. I still pinch myself everyday!!!! The day this was announced you really got me 🙈 I was so overwhelmed with emotion and love from my whole VS family. I love you all so much!!! Also, a huge thank you to all my girls and @imgmodels @sbermood For being the most supportive and loving people out there. I couldn’t do this without you all!! Thanks again to @ed_razek, Monica Mitro & everyone at Victoria’s Secret for giving me your constant support!!!!
