A recent Victoria's Secret photo shoot has the internet buzzing, but it has very little to do with the lingerie being featured in the photos.
Model and Victoria's Secret Angel Jasmine Tookes did a photo shoot promoting the upcoming annual lingerie show. The shoot features this year's Fantasy Bra, an undergarment that features an array of diamonds and emeralds. The price tag for the bra comes in at a hefty $3 million.
However, when the photos were released people didn't care about the bra as much as they cared about Tookes' stretch marks being visible in the photos.
Tookes became even more of a sensation for proudly showing off her imperfections.
@JasTookes has stretch marks and that 100% makes me feel better about mine— erin. (@erindaniellex3) November 1, 2016
When you can look at pics of a model & say 'her stretch marks are just like mine'. Love the way VS is changing the game with Jasmine Tookes pic.twitter.com/uTfaC9MOXN— Nola Marianna Ojomu (@NolaMarianna) November 1, 2016
Cannot get over the photos of Jasmine Tookes wearing the VS fantasy bra. Ohhh my😍— han (@hannahwatkinsxo) November 1, 2016
Did we also mention that Tookes is the third woman of color to sport the Fantasy Bra since the show has existed? This fact in combination with the shoot has made Tookes a symbol of empowerment overnight.
It's unknown if Victoria's Secret intended on releasing the untouched photos, but either way it's brought about a great deal of positivity. We can't wait to see Tookes walk in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, wearing this amazing outfit and all the many others she will be sporting that night!
