Russian Bombshell Irina Shayk Loves Tight Leather Pants
Irina Shayk (born January 6, 1986) is a Russian model and actress. She is sometimes credited as Irina Sheik, and was born Irina Shaykhlislamova. One can see why the beauteous Irina shortened her name to make it easier on us mere mortals to pronounce.
Irina Shayk is not a household name with lots of notoriety or an aggressive figure, but anyone with eyes can see her natural charm.
Irina was born in Yemanzhelinsk, Russia, in the Ural Mountains just north of Kazakhstan. It is an old coal mining town, and is pretty much as remote as it sounds.
Irina Shayk is of ethnic Tatar and Russian background, and her dark complexion is not unusual for that region of Russia.
Irina went to a local beauty school after high school, where a modeling agency noticed her and encouraged Irina to enter a "Miss Chelyabinsk 2004" beauty contest. Irina entered and won.
From there, Irina Shayk has gone on to adorn the covers of magazines around the world. She began appearing in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2007, and graced the cover in 2011.
Irina Shayk is signed with IMG, and her covers include numerous international glamour magazines such as "Woman," "Paris Capital" and "Bolero."
There is a serious body of opinion that says Irina Shayk is the most beautiful woman in the world. Kanye West picked her to appear in his "Power" video, and she met erstwhile boyfriend Cristiano Ronaldo while modelling underwear at Armani Exchange.
Cristiano, of course, is perhaps the world's best-known soccer player, and those guys don't fool around when choosing their Wives and Girlfriends. If you have any question about Cristiano's own celebrity - he currently sits at 4th on the list of all-time most Instagram followers, with about 110 million. The only accounts that ever have had more than Cristiano are those of Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande... and @Instagram itself.
The power couple stayed together for several years, too, which speaks well of Irina. She has been on various "Sexiest" lists, and was once named "Sexiest Woman in the World" by a Hungarian magazine.
Irina has set up shop in the West Village of New York Street, so she obviously means to pursue her modelling career in the States, where the real action is these days.
She also has begun branching out into acting, with an appearance in "Hercules" a Dwayne Johnson film directed by Brett Ratner released on July 25, 2014.
Irina has done a little television acting in addition to the occasional film role. She was in television series "Inside Amy Schumer" (2016) and "Love Advent" (2015-2016).
Irina voiced Mila Belova on video game "Need for Speed: The Run" in 2011.
Irina had a daughter, Lea De Seine Shayk Cooper, with actor Bradley Cooper on March 21, 2017.
Irina was No. 4 on Maxim magazine's 2014 "Hot 100" list.
Irina has an Instagram account for herself, Cooper and daughter Lea.
I love traveling. I hate jet lag, but I love, love, love, love traveling, to meet new people, to try different foods because I'm a big foodie.
|Yes, there are several different versions of this shot here - it's worth it.|
Stay away from the sun and remember the skin on a woman's neck, hands and face is sensitive and ages easily, so apply a high SPF sunscreen on those areas.
My ideal man is faithful, honest, and a gentleman who knows how to treat women.
I travel around the world, and there are so many beautiful girls, but that's not going to make you a supermodel. You have to have something more than just a pretty face.
Sometimes I wake up and think I look horrible. And sometimes I see a strong woman.
