Award-winning actress, best-selling author, model and cultural icon, Brooke Shields will host The Finalists’ Luncheon on Friday, April 7th, where the top five finalists in all categories and winners for Editorial Excellence, Social Media Campaign and 360-Degree Marketing will be announced. Known for iconic roles in film, television and theater, Shields’ career began at 11 months of age, when she was selected as the Ivory Snow Baby. She received instant fame after starring in the films “Pretty Baby,” “Blue Lagoon” and “Endless Love,” and went on to star on television in “Suddenly Susan” and “Lipstick Jungle.” She is currently the host of “Brooke Shields Now” on Sirius XM radio and is an advocate for women’s rights and keeping the arts alive in schools.
Olivia Palermo will be awarded the first-ever “Instagrammer of the Year” award. With 4.7 million Instagram followers, Palermo is a trendsetter for her generation, noted for her savvy sense of balancing high and low fashion and her many collaborations with fashion, accessories and beauty brands.
Victoria’s Secret Angel Jasmine Tookes has been selected as the inaugural Face of the Year. Tookes, who launched Victoria’s Secret Scandalous in 2015 and was the face of limited edition Scandalous Dare in 2016, has had a meteoric rise since being discovered in 2012. In 2016, she received the honor of wearing the coveted “Fantasy Bra” – worth an estimated $3 million – at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. In 2012, Tookes became a brand ambassador for the intimate apparel behemoth, walked its annual supermodel-filled runway show, and appeared in print and television advertising campaigns shot and directed by Russell James and Michael Bay. In addition to her duties for Victoria’s Secret, Jasmine has walked in shows for Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Versace, Balmain, Tom Ford, Ferragamo, Oscar de la Renta and Ralph Lauren.
“This year’s race is one of the most exciting in the history of The Fragrance Foundation,” said president Elizabeth Musmanno, “We’re thrilled to have Brooke Shields host the Finalists’ Luncheon and we look forward to celebrating with Olivia Palermo, Jasmine Tookes, and all of the honorees on April 7th.”
Both Palermo and Tookes will be féted at The Finalists’ Luncheon on Friday, April 7th. The 2017 Fragrance Foundation Awards presented by Hearst Magazines will be held on Wednesday, June 14th, 2017 at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center in New York City.
