It's been an exciting year for Jasmine Tookes. She wore the coveted $3 million Fantasy Bra on the Victoria's Secret runway in Paris. Just last week, the model took home the inaugural Face of the Year award by the Fragrance Foundation for her work on the Victoria's Secret Scandalous and Scandalous Dare perfume campaigns. (Both Victoria's Secret Heavenly and Crush are up for consumer choice awards, should you feel inclined to go vote). We got a few minutes with Tookes before the award ceremony to get a quick lesson in how to train, fuel, and smell like an Angel.
HB: Fitness is obviously so important to you. People are always commenting on your Instagram account, Joja, wondering what your schedule looks like. What is your fitness routine?
JT: "I switch it up. I'll do one day with legs and abs, lower body. The next day I will do an upper body day. And then one day I always dedicate to my butt. A whole butt day for like an hour. And then I'll take a break on one day. And then the next day I do a full body. Then I am off the rest of the days."
HB: What is your go-to pre and post workout snack?
JT: "I definitely like to have something in my stomach before I otherwise I'll get nauseous and have no energy at all. I'll have a protein shake or, I normally workout in the morning, so I'll have a breakfast sandwich or omelet. After a workout I love to have a lot of protein like grilled chicken, veggies, and rice. Or steak, if it's in the evening."
HB: Other than the fact that it's your job, how do you motivate yourself to get up and get to the gym?
JT: "Oh my god, it's so hard. I think the easiest way to motivate myself is to go with a friend. Josephine, for example, we workout together all the time. She texts me like, 'Hey want to go to Dogpound?" And you like, can't say no. You feel like, crap! If she's going I gotta go. You have to find a friend to motivate you."
HB: You go to Dogpound in New York, but what about other cities? For example if you're in Miami or L.A., do you have go-to gyms there?
JT: "I like to try out different classes in different cities. For example in California I go to a place called The Studio MDR, which is a pilates class. Or I'll do Physique 57, which I know is all-over. That's one of my favorite barre classes.
HB: We imagine one of the best perks of your job is getting a ton of Victoria's Secret swag. Do you have a jillion workout classes and perfumes laying around your apartment?
JT: "I do. My apartment is like a Victoria's Secret store! I love it."
HB: How do you keep it all organized?
JT: "I don't. I try my best?" [laughs]
HB: You're receiving an award from The Fragrance Foundation, which is very exciting. Tell us more about that.
JT: "Yeah, it's super exciting. I am receiving an award or face of the year for Victoria's Secret Scandalous. It's just super cool, and it was my very first solo campaign that I shot for the brand."
HB: If you could name a Victoria's Secret perfume, what would you name it?
JT: "Jasmine! And it would smell like Jasmine."
