This model-turned-actress is more than just swoon-worthy selfies!
You might not know Jasmine Sanders’ name, but we’re sure you recognize her face.
The 25-year-old model/actress, whose nickname is Golden Barbie, has worked the catwalk for Miu Miu, Moschino and Ralph Lauren, just to name a few. She’s also besties with those Jenner girls (Kendall and Kylie) and quite the social media maven.
But beyond taking the fashion world by storm and snapping swoon-worthy selfies, Sanders loves a good workout — which is why she was the perfect person to model Reebok’s latest clothing collaboration with graffiti artist Tristan Eaton.
The colorfully printed ine of yoga gear — including tank tops, pants, shorts and sprots bra are perfect for the gal who isn’t afraid to stand out while getting her namaste on.
And speaking of standing out, we got the chance to chat with Sanders about working with Reebok, what beauty products she’s into, what #BlackGirlMagic means to her, and more. Check it out!
ESSENCE: What was it like working with Reebok and Tristan Eaton?
Jasmine Sanders: It was an amazing shoot and a great team to work with. This shoot stood out most because I was able to get a full body, one-on-one yoga workout along with some amazing shots.
What’s your favorite way to workout?
I really enjoy workouts that involve a lot of high energy cardio. I also enjoy group workouts with my friends so we can catch up and get healthy while doing it.
If you could go shopping with anyone (alive or deceased) who would it be?
Anna Wintour. There’s a lot that can be learned from someone so dedicated to fashion as the editor-in-chief of Vogue.
What’s the best fashion/beauty advice you’ve ever received?
My mother is a makeup artist and she always told me to wash my makeup off at the end of the day to be sure to let my skin breathe.
Sneakers or heels?
I love an awesome pair of sneakers but you can’t ever go wrong with the right heel. I’d love to be in a nice sneaker, but depending on the occasion, the heels win over.
Jeans or a dress?
I prefer jeans but I really do enjoy dolling myself up and throwing on a dress on the special occasion.
Describe your style in 3 words.
Comfortable. Sexy. Sporty.
If you weren’t a model/actress, what would you be?
If I wasn’t a model or an actress I would be doing something in the medical field. I’ve always loved helping people and I’ve been fascinated with learning about how the body works.
If you had to wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I really enjoy being stylish and comfortable at the same time so if there was one outfit I had to wear for the rest of my life it would be a cute, comfortable leggings with a nice top and my favorite sneakers.
What’s the one thing you would never wear?
There’s not really something I would never wear because I’m always willing to try new styles and experiment with different looks.
What are the three beauty products you can’t live without?
I have to have use perfume, rosewater spray, and make-up removing wipes daily.
What does #BlackGirlMagic mean to you?
#BlackGirlMagic means to me standing fully in the way you were created without apologizing to anyone for who you are. #BlackGirlMagic is knowing that nothing is wrong with how your body looks or how your hair grows and that you were created with no mistakes.
