Irina Shayk's already landed the cover of Jalouse and a career-making spot in Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue from 2007-09. She's also the face of Intimissimi and Guess, but she just now signed to IMG and they're celebrating their new girl with much more than your basic measurement holding model card. The video above is the most fun way we've ever learned of an agency's new hire and we think it should be the only way from now on. IMG even wrangled (we're sure it was difficult) their very own elevator operator to star alongside the Russian babe.
Irina Shayk Goes from Swim to High Fashion Model Thanks to Kanye?
Irina Shayk is best known as a swimsuit and lingerie model. And the girlfriend of football star Cristiano Ronaldo. She's graced the pages of Sports Illustrated wearing nothing but a laptop (really) and modeled lots of lacy barely there lingerie but now, a curious press release points out, she's going high fashion. "She has now made a change from being sexy lingerie and swimsuit model to high fashion model with a spread in Harper’s Bazaar Spain and has msot [sic] recently graced teh [sic] cover of Elle Spain for tehir [sic] September issue," the typo-riddled press release reads. The release then goes on to explain Shayk's rising profile: She 'had a mention in Kanye West’s new song ‘Christian Dior Denim Flow.’" Could it be? Is Kanye's model name-dropping in 'Christian Dior Denim Flow' a game changer? We're sure he'd like to think so.
