Bradley had to be insane to overlook such beauty. Just take a look at Irina’s thin figure wearing a bikini.
Irina Shayk is firmly at the top of the list when it comes to bikini stars. She has achieved international fame thanks to her bikini body and has appeared ten times in the pages of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. The supermodel debuted in the magazine’s classic issue in 2007, progressed to the coveted position of cover model in 2011, and was the first Russian-born celebrity to receive the distinction in 2012.
Irina was raised in Chelyabinsk, Russia, where she was born. She continued her education after high school at a beauty school, where a scout from a nearby modeling agency was captivated by the green-eyed beauty. Irina started a modeling career after being persuaded to attend the Miss Chelyabinsk 2004 pageant, which she won. Irina became the face of the lingerie and underwear company Intimissimi in a matter of just three short years, a position she still retains today as a global ambassador. This was made possible by her incredible swimsuit body, which also helped her land a spot in Sports Illustrated. She landed work with Victoria’s Secret and Beach Bunny Swimwear before signing with elite IMG Models in 2009.
Irina started moving away from swimwear and toward high fashion tasks after landing the cover of the SI Swimsit Issue. She has appeared on the pages of several fashion publications and walked the runway for renowned designers all over the world. Nothing has stopped Irina from strutting her stuff; in fact, she participated in the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show while six months pregnant with the daughter she shares with her ex-partner Bradley Cooper, Lea de Seine Shayk Cooper.
“I frequently remark that becoming a mother is among life’s finest experiences. My life hasn’t changed, in my opinion. It did alter in a way that improved me. Family is the most significant thing in the world, Irina said in an interview with W magazine in January 2019.
Irina denied that having children had altered her personal style. In no way. People will occasionally say, “Oh, she’s a parent, and she’s wearing this?” Give me a break, girl, I’m like. We are in the twenty-first century, once more. You don’t need to alter and dress differently just because you are a mother and have a baby. Keep being yourself and expressing it.
