Jasmine Tookes will wear '$3 million worth of emeralds' Bright Night Fantasy Bra at Victoria's Secret Fashion Show
Jasmine Tookes is set to wear the "$3 million worth of emeralds" Bright Night Fantasy Bra at this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion show.
The 25-year-old model is set to grace the catwalk for the brand's upcoming fashion show, which will take place on December 5 in Paris, France, and has been selected to wear the highly coveted piece of underwear that took A. W. Mouzannar "700 hours" to handcraft the "9000 precious gemstones" into the garment.
Alongside an image of Jasmine, which was shared to Victoria's Secret Instagram page, it read: "Here she is...@jastookesin the 2016 Bright Night Fantasy Bra: $3 million worth of emeralds, diamonds & more, designed by @eddieborgo & hand-crafted by @awmouzannar.

"9,000 precious gemstones. 700 hours in the making. Not bad for a $3 million bra!@jastookes is one lucky Angel in this year's #VSFantasyBra, created by@eddieborgo & @awmouzannar.
The brunette beauty also shared the news on social media with a picture of her wearing the dazzling undergarment, which was moulded to fit her petite frame.
Jasmine - who made her debut on the lingerie giant's glamour runway in 2012 and acquired her angel wings last year - captioned her Instagram post: "The 2016 Bright Night Fantasy Bra (sic)."
The star took to social media earlier in the week to reveal how excited she is to be starring in the highly-anticipated show, alongside Bella Hadid and Stella Maxwell.
Alongside a video, she wrote: "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 @sbermoodFor 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!!!! (sic)."
