Shanina Shaik shocked to be back for Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

She’s one of the world’s most beautiful women, but Shanina Shaik wasn’t expecting to be cast in the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this year.

After failing to make the cut for the last two years, the runway regular was surprised when she got the call for the upcoming 2018 show.

‘I didn’t expect that I would be doing the casting this year, in all honest truth,’ the 27-year-old admitted to news.com.au this week.

‘I was confident within myself and I was happy whatever the result,’ she continued, before adding: ‘I worked hard for it.’

Shanina didn’t make it into the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show until 2011, her third year trying.

She made it back in the following year in 2012, and walked again in 2014 and 2015.

However, the Australian stunner failed to make the cut for the next two years, before getting the call for the upcoming 2018 show.

The 27-year-old is currently focused on her fitness to ensure that she’s in tip-top shape for the runway come November.

Taking to Instagram this week, the star said: ‘I would like to share my #fitnessgoal for the upcoming #VSFashionShow.

She finished: ‘I’m not at all very good at them, but i love a challenge.’
