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”. (more…)
