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 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. She 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 future and current 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. They have been together for several years, too, which speaks well of her. She has been on various "Sexiest" lists, and was once named "Sexiest Woman in the World" by a Hungarian magazine. 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 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 even has begun branching out into acting, with an appearance in "Hercules" a Dwayne Johnson film directed by Brett Ratner set for release on July 25, 2014.
Some things are just better explained with pictures. Below, shots of the glamorous Irina Shayk weaing leather.
