Irina Sheik appeared in the magazine Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. March 2012.
We are here to introduce a woman who strives for beauty and compassion, and who is not an ill-willed gossip but a stunning reality.
Irina Shayk (Sheik) is a Russian model known for her 2007 – 2012 appearances in the “Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue”. Irina was the cover model for the 2011 issue. She inherited her competitive spirit and her gorgeous look from her Russian mother and her Tatar-(Mongolian) father.
Irina started her career relatively late for a model. When she was 19 years old (and working at a beauty salon in Russia) she was discovered by her future manager, and soon after that she began modeling in Paris.
In 2007 she worked for “Intimissimi” and in the same year debuted in the annual “Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue”. Other works include the “Victoria’s Secret” catalog, “Lacoste” and “Cesare Paciotti”. Her magazine covers include “Annabelle”, “Bolero”, “Woman”, “Vanity Fair” “Jalousie”, and “Paris Capital”. On May 2009 she signed with the modeling agency IMG.
In the spring and summer of 2010 Irina modeled for “Armani Exchange”. She ranked first in the “50 Hottest Russian Women” list by Complex magazine, and “Glamour” Spain awarded her “Best International Model of 2010”.
Her Heart Is Pretty, Too: Irina and her sister Tatiana are running a charity campaign “Pomogi”, (which translates as “Help”). Irina Sheik is helping a maternity hospital in her hometown where she is trying to rebuild the children’s ward of the hospital. Currently Irina raises money on the behalf of a Russian charity which provides care to hundreds of sick children. Irina is the official ambassador for “Pomogi” charity in Russia. She has recently become involved in the Red Cross, lending her support to improve health worldwide.
This is a great example of compassion- an ability to remember your own roots, an ability to feel the pain or happiness of others as your own, and an ability to give back to those who are less fortune. Compassion is a global concept and we have no intention of discriminating against anyone by attributing this concept to only one person, one nation, particular religion or a minority group. But we are terribly sorry for those who aren’t in the proper alignment with this universal principle and who still struggle with understanding compassion. We hope that you will get well soon, regardless of your age, origin, profession, or stage of your personal and mental development. We also wish you some luck with your endeavors.
