Cracked's Luisa D'Oliveira is the new 'Toro Woman'

-- CBC/Toro

For a TV cop like Cracked's Poppy Wisnefski, the height of glamour is a new kevlar vest.

Luisa D'Oliveira, the Vancouver actress who plays the the Psych Crimes detective, is similarly practical when it comes to her personal style. (Her favourite item of clothing is even something she snagged from the Cracked set: a pair of comfy, Frye leather boots.)

But since Toro Magazine recruited D'Oliveira as their latest "Toro Woman," she's had to find the glam side of being a T-shirt and jeans kind of girl.

The star features in a photo spread for the men's magazine, playing up her "inner rock star" in ripped cut-offs, vintage concert tees and a few ultra-luxe accessories courtsy Lucian Matis and David's shoes.

"I don't usually walk around in leather hooker boots and T-shirts," D'Oliveira told the magazine. Check out her photo feature, shot by Dave Gillespie, at And for a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the shoot, check out the video below:
