Angel alert! Victoria’s Secret model Jasmine Tookes will flutter into our midst Tuesday. Reason? You need a reason? Actually the 23-year-old Californian is introducing the lingerie retailer’s latest scent, Scandalous.
“It’s very warm,” says Tookes of the sweet-meets-spicy perfume. “It kind of reminds me of sitting by the fire in a cabin.”
Not that South Floridians would know much about that experience. Still, Tookes believes Scandalous won’t disappoint. And, hey, if you don’t like the way the fragrance smells, you can still get to meet this gorgeous specimen at two separate appearances, from 1-2 p.m. at the Lincoln Road store and 6-7 p.m. at the Dadeland Mall location.
Tookes likes traveling to South Florida because the beach reminds her of being home in Huntington Beach.
Never miss a local story.
“I love the ocean, so that’s the first place I go to when I get to Miami,” says the New York City resident.
She may be homesick, but Tookes is living the dream. Her goal since she was a little girl was to strut for Victoria’s Secret.
“I was obsessed!” she says. “I had pictures of Heidi [Klum] and Tyra [Banks] and Gisele on my wallpaper on my desktop growing up.”
To stay in fighting shape, Tookes’ other obsession these days is P90X, a 90-day home fitness system that combines various workouts including weight training, cardio, martial arts and yoga, along with a nutrition plan.
But — sigh — being genetically superior helps, too.
“I have always been really athletic,” says the Pinkberry aficionado, “but I’m lucky in that I have a really fast metabolism, and I kind of eat whatever I want.”
Access the VIP line, in which you get to take a photo with Tookes, by purchasing an Eau de Parfum of 1 oz. or greater or a Scandalous bra.
