111SKIN AT THE FASHION AWARDS 2021: BEHIND THE SCENES WITH SHANINA SHAIK
We sat down with our guest Shanina Shaik as she prepped ahead of The Fashion Awards 2021 to talk everything skincare and wellness. The model revealed her secrets to glowing skin, as well as the treatment she likes to indulge in after a long-haul flight.
Having risen to fame on the Victoria’s Secret runway and walking for some of the most prestigious names on the Fashion Week roster, the 30-year-old Australian model knows a thing or two about having to look and feel good, even with an impossibly busy schedule. Crediting Pilates and a healthy, balanced diet as her pillars of wellbeing, Shanina also describes how important it is to keep hydrated, and if you can, enjoy a facial after a long-haul flight or event to rehydrate skin and achieve flawless makeup application.
Before the awards, our guests were welcome to the BVLGARI Hotel in London (home to our 111SPA concept), where they were treated to a signature 90-minute Celestial Black Diamond Non-Surgical Face Lift Facial that harnesses science-led formulas from our Intensive range. Integrating fine diamond particles to ensure maximum absorption of active ingredients into the skin, the 10-step treatment is the most potent within our offering and uses surgically-inspired masks and aesthetician-grade exfoliating acids to help lift, contour and ease any fine lines.
Speaking of her skin fixes and beauty secrets, Shaik explains, “I’m a huge fan of the masks. I have to have a 111SKIN mask before any event, and I’ve been doing this for so many years.” A fan of minimal makeup and a naturally glowing complexion, Shaik describes, “It’s all really about hydration, so eye masks are really important for me, and a simple face mask.” Post-event, the idea is the same – hydration, hydration, hydration. “After a big night to restore my glow, I’m going to hydrate my skin with moisturiser,” says Shaik.
While skincare was the topic of the evening, it was difficult to ignore the stunning gown Shaik chose to wear. The high-neck style dripping in Swarovski crystals was designed by Kuwaiti designer Yousef Al Jasmi, who is best known for couture silhouettes and hyper-embellished details. Falling into the fashion industry by accident (after draping a scrap of gold fabric over a mannequin, and creating a one-should mini dress that sold instantly), Al Jasmi’s gowns are known to take hundreds of hours of delicate handiwork to finesse by his 150-strong team.
