She’s a face we all remember from Australian reality TV series ‘Make Me A Supermodel,’ is dating American model Tyson Beckford, and currently stars in a fierce new feature for Lurve magazine. Meet FashionTV’s Model of the Week, Miss Shanina Shaik!

Age: 22
Fashion Fact: Shanina named her two dogs Ralph and Lauren.

Shanina Shaik is an exotic mix of Lithuanian heritage and Pakistani roots, but spent her life growing up in Melbourne Australia.

Her model journey began at the tender age of 8, when she joined a local agency. But carrying her mother’s words of wisdom — to match her looks with her brains — took a break from modeling to focus on her studies before returning to her natural gift when she was 15.

She later appeared on Australian reality TV series ‘Make Me A Supermodel’ in 2008, and though taking the title of runner-up to winner Rhys Uhlich, the show opened a window of opportunities for the smoking Australian.

Shaik made her debut catwalk appearance on the Fall 2009-10 fashion week runways, starting with lesser-known designers, and followed by her second runway season where she featured in shows for Betsey Johnson, Project Runway, Just Cavalli, and many more.

It was, however, 2011 that marked a breakthrough in Shaik’s model career, when the honeyed skin beautiful brunette was signed to NEXT Models and selected to walk on the sexiest catwalk of the year, the Annual Victoria’s Secret Show, which she has since starred in for a second year running.

But Victoria’s Secret aside, Shaik is taking the high fashion industry by storm, landing precious catwalk moments in the prestigious Chanel, Tom Ford, Stella McCartney, and other fashion shows.

Shaik is also building a breathtaking editorial portfolio for herself with Vogue Italia, W Magazine, GQ, and other spreads dedicated to the gorgeous 22-year-old.

So we can understand why the Victoria’s Secret model is hot in demand both at work and in her personal life. Particularly when it comes to American model Tyson Beckford, best known for his work with Calvin Klein, as Shaik’s boyfriend, and the man that claims to have “made” her career, as well as revealing intimate details about their sex life, which resulted in a short split. But all is forgiven, and today the fiery two keep their private life private, while Shaik continues to conquer the fashion world!
