Irina Shayk is an internationally recognized model from Russia who is known for her appearances in the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Back in 2011, Shayk became the first Russian model to grace the cover of the magazine.
Shayk, who previously had high profile relationships with Cristiano Ronaldo and Bradley Cooper, began modeling in 2017. Along with Sports Illustrated, she has appeared in the Victoria’s Secret catalog, and worked in ads for Lacoste, Cesare Paciotti, and Morellato.
She was discovered by Intimissimi in Moscow.
“It’s been so many years. They are actually the ones who discovered me, in Moscow. I was shooting a campaign for this department store and they came on set because they were looking for a replacement for Ana Beatriz Barros,” she said in an interview with W Magazine. “They saw me and asked me if I wanted to be the new face of the campaign. I was like, ‘Of course.’ They signed me for six months and since then, I’m still here. For the past four years, I’ve been an ambassador. I’ve been with them for 10 years, I think.”
During her marriage to Cooper, Shayk gave birth to a daughter, Lea De Seine. Shayk and Cooper separated in June 2019.
