The Victoria’s Secret Angels Descend Upon Rome

Models Jasmine Tookes and Taylor Hill chime in from behind the scenes of the brand’s biggest campaign of the year.

Jasmine Tookes

“Mentally, I prepare by trying to get a lot of sleep before the shoot so I’m well-rested. And physically I prepare by trying to work out every day. It gives you more stamina throughout the day—you know you can handle a lot because you work out like a bad ass.” – Taylor Hill
