Looking at Jasmine’s shots we see money. This beauty is a can do girl – from Sports Illustrated to Italian Vogue (which she just shot with Ellen von Unwerth), Jasmine has a versatile look that crosses over all aspects of the industry. Blessed with a great personality as well as a great understanding of fashion (mom is a celebrity stylist/personal shopper), Jasmine is already clocking up top notch bookings. From DKNY with Craig McDean to Gap Jeans and Abercrombie & Fitch, this California girl has the range to reach super stardom… and you can run and tell that!

    what a hot new face… good to see a beautiful new African American girl in the biz, the industry needs more color.

    great face.. wow, but isn’t she not tall enought? does somebody know how old is she? amazing agencies

    to wow: I don’t know if she’s shorter than 5’9″ but it’s crazy if anyone thinks 5’9″ isn’t tall enough to be a model. The best models have always been somewhere around 5’9″.

    Sorry but 6’0″ and a model is what is causing our too skinny problems.

    I hope Jasmine can seal the fine line between high fashion clients and high commercial clients!

    I think her height is fine especially considering her measurements. What a beautiful face! I wish her the best

    Ahh, Jasmine is great, but she is NOT a new face. She’s been working for a while now & works quite a lot. Slow model week due to fashion week wrapping up I suppose?

    I like her, very fresh.. but its not like “wooow!!” for me….

    she is what u call a white girl dipped in chocolate. it seems like there are two different categories of black models; the african ones, dark skin,full lips/nose, kinky hair(ajouk,alek etc) and then light skin/brown mixed looking girls…long hair, more petite features ( jourdan,iman)

    I like her. I want to see how she is in editorials. Her tests are very clean and fresh.

    To the comment about her “newness”–most of the “new faces” and “top ten newcomers” are not “new” to the industry at all just new to the radar.

    Jasmine is as sweet as genuine. You can check her out and judge for yourself in a video:

    I fancy her,

  16. Yasmin says:

    Very commercial!
    Imo, she’s too short (def. shorter than 1.75)& too thin…

    The site could do without racist remarks

  18. BMD says:

    Mostly agree with comments made here. She’s been successful out there for a long while. and you’re trying to call her a new face/new to the radar? One would hope Models.com would have a more finely-tuned radar than that.

    Also, must say, so TIRED of people commenting on models being too skinny. Models. Are. Skinny. End of story- get behind it or GTFO of here.

    She was born to be a model.

    Absolutely stunning! She is going to be huge. I’ve seen her in Sephora, Gap, Ugg, dkny and most recently sports illustrated. I look forward to seeing much more of her. She will be the next big thing. Gorgeous.

    I love her photos I’m an inspiring colored model and i find motivation in her photos seeing these stunning shots makes me more confident in myself to go out there and peruse my career as a model . thank you Jasmine

    It’s true, she could work in different areas of modeling.

    she’s pretty but she’s not new. she has been around for a bit.

    Jourdan is not light-skinned.
    Besides, fashion has always loved extremes, regardless of race. Hence why eastern european women make up the bulk of white models.

    I just auditioned for ANTM and they said im too short!! -__- is 5;6 too short to be a model?? and is there a supermodel that is 5;6?

    A model can work extensively in their home market and still be considered a new face. MDC caters to an international audience. Jasmine just turned 20. She’s only worked in the US. Ellen von Unwerth loves her. The rest of the world awaits. Arizona Muse, Carola Remer, Kasia Wrobel, Fabiana Mayer, Monika Sawicka, Anais Pouliot, and countless other girls who are currently classified as new faces have been on one scene or another for years.

    She’s brazilian, west indian, white and black. May be shorter than 5’9″ from what i remember but I guess it’s working for her …Vouge, Gap, Elli Tahari, She’s working it.

    I can see why SI booked her, she’s appealing.

    Jasmine is a great model and has an excellent personality… I mean look at the recent jobs and campaigns she has booked… I don’t think anyone needs to justify her as a model! She is definitely 5’9 and you really don’t have to be 5’9 to be a great model… I mean Kate Moss….
