>It’s safe to say that once you wear the Fantasy Bra on a runway for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, your career’s in a pretty solid place (at the very least). But in a little game of Fashion Firsts, we asked last year’s VS show honoree, Jasmine Tookes, to walk us down memory lane to recall some of her very first milestones in the business. And you may be left surprised.
>The 26-year-old shared that her first-ever photo shoot was for none other than the iconic teen mall brand Abercrombie & Fitch—with legendary photographer Bruce Weber, of course. Meanwhile the first item she ever purchased with her hard-earned modeling paychecks was a Prada bag. Chic, non? Tookes says she bought it because “it was a bag that could also fit my book as I was running around to castings.” Clearly this supermodel has a pretty practical head on her shoulders, too.
>Watch the complete video to learn more about Tookes’s other fashion firsts. Then, up next, meet the style icon who’s convinced the dog walk is so much cooler than the catwalk.
