Just felt the temperature soar a few degrees higher? You can probably thank reality TV star-turned-Victoria’s Secret Angel Shanina Shaik, whose latest set of images are generating enough heat to thaw out even the southernmost parts of the globe.
Shot in sunny Tulum for Revolve Clothing’s Summer 2013 lookbook, the pictures are a white-hot combination of Shaik’s ridiculous genetic code, photographer Chris Shintani’s camera and Quintana Roo’s world-famous beaches. There is also some clothing of the denim cut-offs and swimsuit variety, though that tends to take a backseat to the rest of the action.
Since appearing in Make Me a Supermodel back in 2008 Shaik’s star has been rising steadily. She’s not only walked for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show but for Chanel, Jason Wu, Stella McCartney and L’Wren Scott, as well as starring in advertisements for General Pants, Revlon, Seafolly and Urban Outfitters. Her latest shoot bears a striking resemblance to the one lensed for Vogue Australia in January, but sometimes you can’t have too much of a good thing.
If you listen carefully, you can hear Tyson Beckford crying low-sodium tears into his protein shake.
