The beauty is interviewed by Sarah Horne Grose about her rocket-ship ride at VS, culminated by wearing the brand's Fantasy Bra in Paris at their annual fashion show.
"It's the first time in over a decade [this has happened]. A lot of my followers are African-American girls, and they're excited. It encourages them and gives them hope...If you want to go for something, go for it."
It's a philosophy that's guided Tookes since she was a child in Huntington Beach, California, where her mother was a well-known celebrity stylist. From the beginning, Tookes was dead-set on the runways of New York and Europe. "I was always immersed in the world of fashion. Some girls will say, 'Oh, I wanted to be a doctor,' but all I ever wanted to do was model. I would do fashion shows for my mom. I was always her little assistant on shoots, helping her out. I'm such a girly girl."
Asked about her love life, Tookes is quiet. Her ex-boyfriend is model Tobias Sorensen, who she met shooting Calvin Klein's 2015 Eternity Now fragrance campaign. Elle paired her with Snapchat's senior partnerships manager Juan David Borrero in November 2016.
