Sexy Shanina!

Shanina Shaik victoriassecret.filminspector.com

Shanina Shaik is a supermodel who first walked in the 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. She followed that up by appearing in the 2012, 2014, 2015, and 2018 shows. Shanina also has done print work for Victoria's Secret.

Shanina (born 11 February 1991 in Melbourne, Australia) has an interesting family history. Her mother's family, of Lithuanian descent, is from Jamaica, having moved to Australia after World War II. Her Pakistani/Saudi Arabian father was born in Singapore. So, Shanina is of Saudi, Pakistani, Lithuanian, and Australian descent but now lives in the United States after having spent time in England. The sun never sets on the Shaik family!

After living in London for a year during the pandemic, Shanina received her visa to return to the United States in February 2021. She proudly displayed her visa on her Instagram page. But she's no stranger to the U.S., having lived there previously for a decade.

After purchasing a home there, Shanina now lives in Hollywood.

Unfortunately, Shanina had to leave her pet French bulldog Choppa behind in London. She appears to have gotten it back to live with her by now, though. This became a continuing drama on Shanina's popular (2.4 million followers at last look) Instagram page. Choppa also apparently has its own Instagram page.

Shanina was a child model who got her first work at the tender age of eight years old. Among her other early achievements was being in a television commercial for a major car company.

However, Shanina focused on her studies in high school and gave up the limelight for a while. In fact, she focused so hard that she graduated a year earlier. Now that's a go-getter!

However, she didn't give up on her dreams. At the age of fifteen, Shanina entered the Girlfriend Model Competition. Instead of entering the modeling world right away, which was very interested in her, she joined the Australian reality show Make Me A Supermodel. Shanina finished as runner-up.

After that, Ralph Lauren model/actor Tyson Beckford, host of Make Me A Supermodel, convinced Shanina to move to New York City. There she was quickly signed by New York Models.

From a Muslim background, Shanina says her father is 100% behind her career choices.

All of the top magazines have had Shanina grace their covers. She snagged her first Vogue cover, Vogue Australia, in May 2012. Here's a sample of some of her recent covers:

2021
  • March Vogue Arabia
  • January Harper's Bazaar Singapore
2020
  • June CR Fashion Book
  • March Manifesto Asia
  • January Harper's Bazaar Arabia
2019
  • July L'Officiel Ukraine
  • June L'Beaute
  • May Maxim USA
2018
  • July Vogue Brides Australia
  • June Vogue Arabia
  • May Moments
Married for only a year to Gregory Andrews aka DJ Ruckus (Lenny Kravitz's cousin) before seeking a divorce, Shanina has not soured on marriage. She's still on "great terms" with DJ. They married on 28 April 2018 in the Bahamas in a high-profile ceremony, split on 25 June 2019, and were officially divorced on 23 January 2021.

Despite her rocky experience with marriage, she says that "I'm not against it... and I would love to get married again one day." Since Shanina is constantly linked with one suitor or another, that shouldn't be difficult for her to pull off.
Shanina Shaik victoriassecret.filminspector.com

A personal goal is to have children. "I love children. I'm very maternal. I hope to have two kids... one fine day."
Shanina Shaik victoriassecret.filminspector.com

In addition to being a supermodel, Shanina has branched out into acting. For instance, she appeared in "The Mummy" (2017) and "Greed" (2019). These, of course, are in addition to her numerous appearances as herself on numerous television shows and other venues, in some of which she talks about her social causes, mental health.
For me it is really important to educate my followers and show compassion to mental health issues. I would hope that I am succeeding in helping people by doing so.

Although what is happening right now in terms of diversity isn’t amazing, we are on the right track. And this development of everyone towards being inclusive is just amazing.
Shanina Shaik victoriassecret.filminspector.com
It is really important to believe in yourself. Secondly, to have a team behind you that would support you in everything you do and guide you through it. Another necessary thing to survive in the modelling industry is to be strong and have confidence, to push forward and take what you want when it is tough.

Dutch Delight!

Lara Stone.

Lara Catherina Stone appeared in the 2008 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. She was in Segment 2: Dangerous and Segment 6: Black Tie Holiday.

An agent spotted Lara on the Paris Metro in 1995 while on holiday with her family. Ah, sweet serendipity! She was 12. Lara's mother has said she began wearing tight, provocative clothing by the age of 10-11:

My mother tells me of when I was 10 or 11 and I'd wear really tight, short skirts and crop tops. All the local men would wolf whistle and stop and stare, but I didn't realize why at the time.

Lara was expelled from school for "rude" behavior toward her teachers.

This chance encounter apparently led to some modeling assignments. In any event, it spurred her interest in the fashion world. This led Lara to enter the Elite Model Look competition in 1999 when she was 15.

Elite Modelling Agency executives at the competition decided that Lara had "the look." Even though she didn't win the competition, they signed her up. She switched to IMG in 2006.

Lara is notorious for her bad behavior back in the day. She has said:
I used to love slapping people in the face when I was drunk. I thought it was really funny, so I did a lot of that. I'd pick fights with doormen and bouncers a lot. Ex-boyfriends. But nobody ever punched me back.
She also apparently has a violent temper backstage at shows.
