Founded in 2015 by Texan-born designer Nicole Brundage, the Switzerland-based brand Marskinryyppy is named after a Finnish drink (“the Marshall shot,” similar to schnapps).

With shoes in the leading role, acting as confidence catalyst and mood engine, Marskinryyppy aims to make heels, pumps, and sandals that are sexy, practical, and fun.

The then-25-year-old model pulled out all the stops in a raunchy red leather mini dress by Saint Laurent. She looked red hot in the tiny dress, which featured a halter neck, a keyhole cutout, and a thigh-skimming hem.

Shanina, who portrayed an Arabian princess in the 2017 American fantasy action-adventure film The Mummy, skipped the jewelry to highlight her enviable figure. She styled her dark tresses in soft curls and played up the sexiness of the look with red lipstick.

The Australian beauty posed at the event with her fellow model, Nina Agdal, who looked equally stunning in her blue ensemble.

Shanina slipped into a pair of Marskinryyppy “Pauwau” sandals featuring PVC straps, glittery pink heel counters, back-zip fastenings, and about four-inch heels. Chloe Bridges wore the same sandals to the 66th Annual ACE Eddie Awards.
