Shanina Shaik part of Tony Bianco family
Shanina Shaik is thrilled with her new modelling job with Tony Bianco.
The 24-year-old beauty is already known in the fashion world thanks to her role as a Victoria's Secret Angel, which she landed in 2011.
Now Shanina's striking looks have gained her another big job with footwear brand Tony Bianco, as she fronts its Spring/Summer 15 campaign. She shared her happiness at the job alongside a sexy snap of herself from the ads on Instagram.
"Excited to be the new face of @tonybianco !! ???? Thank you for welcoming me into the family. Photographed by @edward_mulvihill#tonybianco #campaign #shoeaholic#heels (sic)" she gushed.
Fans were quick to congratulate her, with Tony himself also commenting on his new model.
"so excited to have you on board! #MegaBabe xx (sic)" he wrote.
Photographer Edward Mulvihill shot the pictures, while Trevor Stones was creative director.
Trevor shared some snaps on his own Instagram page, such as one of Shanina wearing a light blue playsuit with a slashed front and a lightly chequered blazer. The heels on show in this shot are extremely high nude platforms, which elongate her flawless legs.
In another picture the brunette beauty is wearing a dark green jacket with a dark grey skirt and strappy black stilettos with a thin golden heel.
It's an especially meaningful job for Shanina as both she and Tony Bianco are Australian.
The model didn't always have a great deal of confidence growing up with her naturally tanned skin from her parents, but her Lithuanian and Australian mother taught her to embrace her appearance.
"She told me to always be proud of who I am because the people who stand out are the ones who go on to do amazing things with their lives, while bullies will always be one step behind," she previously told Elle Australia.
