Shanina Shaik, of E! Network's New York Fashion Week mini-series Model Squad, got some amazing news while on her latest photo shoot. She will be walking the runway for Victoria's Secret at their upcoming annual fashion show. The news came from a pair of her friends, Lisa Marie Benson and Jasmine Tookes, who met her on the set of her shoot to deliver the news she had been waiting for, as seen on Twitter.
Victoria's Secret usually performs their final cut for their annual fashion show during the beginning of New York Fashion Week each year after 20 or so models make their final test run at VS headquarters in Manhattan, per Harper's Bazaar. This year, better than 40 models were called back in that timeframe, leading some to believe that maybe there would still be another cut-down. Instead, they went with almost half of the batch that showed up, and Shaik was one of the lucky ones.
At 27, the native of Melbourne, Australia, is currently busy walking for New York Fashion Week still but will soon be getting ready for the VS show, which is quickly approaching. On her currently airing show, Model Squad, she shares the screen with a host of other models, including Olivia Culpo and Daniela Braga. The show follows them through the ups and downs of being a model.
