From Victoria's Secret to ChanelShanina Shaik has walked countless runways and starred in numerous brand campaigns. She also happens to be Tyson Beckford's girlfriend, making for a dangerously good looking power couple.

What really made Shaik catch our eye, however, were her off-duty fashion moments. She can make a black gown look unforgettably striking and accessorizes like a pro. The model has a brilliant way of adding an edge to classic looks. In fact, the more we dig into her evening apparel, the more we're inspired to up our game for our next formal function. Scroll through the photos below to see what we mean.

This is a dream of mine, it comes little by little, so I'm very grateful for everything."
