Irina is of course best-known for her work with Italian lingerie company Intimissimi and her many appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
In fact Irina is the first and so far the only Russian model to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s famous Swimsuit Edition. She appeared on the 2011 cover after having made a number of earlier appearances inside previous editions.
Irina’s new Beach Bunny swimsuit collection features a variety of different designs and colours and the photos have been shot in what appears to be a beautiful remote beach location.
As you would expect Irina looks quite stunning in these promo photos although we have to say that it does put the pressure on anyone who buys one of these swimsuits as we doubt there are many bodies in the world that would look as good as Irina’s in this collection.
Not content with modelling for Sports Illustrated, Intimissimi, Morellato, Lacoste, Victoria’s Secret and Guess Irina is also now looking to pursue a movie career.
She is to appear as the wife of Hercules in the movie Hercules: The Thracian Wars. The title role of Hercules is to be played by Dwayne The Rock” Johnson in the Brett Ratner directed action movie. If things run to plan then the movie is set to go on general release in July next year.
Dwayne appears to be a fan of her modelling work and said on his Facebook page ‘Excited to work w/ Irina Shayk who’s making her big screen debut as the wife of Hercules. Cool and hard-working girl. Makes a mean Baklava for Hercules too.
If you think that you can fill out one of these swimsuits even half as well as Irina then the Beach Bunny swimsuit collection goes on sale this autumn.
If you think that Irina looks great in these photos then the readers of the Hungarian magazine Periodika would certainly agree with you as they voted her the Sexiest Woman in the World in 2011. As if she hadn’t already got enough going for her she is also dating the man that many believe to be the world’s best footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo.
