Chocolate-Covered Supermodels HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA-native JASMINE TOOKES and LUANDA, ANGOLA-native MARIA BORGES are two of six Cover Stars for the May 2017 SWIMSUIT ISSUE of ELLE Magazine!!!
MARIA and JASMINE are joined by fellow Supermodels BELLA HADID, CANDICE HUFFINE, ELSA HOSK, and HAILEY BALDWIN.
Here are a couple of interview interludes:
On her passion project:
"My goal has always been to create my own beauty line. I have such a unique skin tone—when I go on set, makeup artists have to use all different mixes of makeup to match my skin. I'dlove to do a line that has tones for everybody."
On the power of representation:
"The fashion industry is here for everyone, [regardless] of color or race. When I was growing up, I never saw someone like me, and now the other girls can see someone like them. It's all about inspiration."
