She modelled a cream dress with a crocheted lace design and a ruffle hem and trim circling the large cut out, which showed off her stomach and chest before coming into a string halter-neck. 

Matching the theme of the auction Shanina added a draping, detailed veil to her slick back brunette locks.

The beauty cradled her bump while modelling, adding a pair of satin cream court heels to the ensemble - which also featured a backless design. 

She sported a glowing makeup look which naturally highlighted her features, with a pink toned blush and lip.

French model Noémie Lenoir stunned as she presented another bridal-themed look, consisting of a dramatic puff skirt and a loose, sleeveless shirt.

The skirt portion of her ensemble cinched in at the waist into a tight-fitting band, while the shirt only contained one button - falling open to reveal Noémie's abs.

She added a heavier veil over her head to match the material of the rest of the look, keeping her makeup subtle and dewy.
