The Soviet Union-born model and actor Irina Shayk, 35, became the face of lingerie company Intimissimi in 2007 after winning a 2004 beauty contest. She went on to become the official ambassador of the brand in 2010.

Also, in 2007, Shayk made her debut in the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and continued appearing in the magazine until 2015. In 2011, she graced the cover, becoming the first Russian model to do so.

Shayk received international attention after the campaign and switched to high fashion. She also made other appearances, including modeling for the summer 2010 Armani Exchange campaign and rapper Kanye West’s music video for “Power” as an angel.

The model went on to walk the runways for well-known high fashion brands, including Marc Jacobs and Victoria’s Secret, became the 2015 L’Oréal Paris International Spokesperson, and has over 20 Vogue covers.

Shayk previously dated Bradley Cooper; now linked to Kanye West

In 2009, the model had a high-profile relationship with Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, until 2015. She began dating actor Bradley Cooper in the same year, and the couple welcomed their daughter Lea De Seine in March 2017.

Shayk memorably walked the runway in the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show while six months pregnant. The two later announced their split in June 2019. In a March 2021 statement to ET Online, the model called Cooper “the most amazing dad” but refused to speak on anything else related to her ex-boyfriend.

Rumors began swirling that West and Shayk began “secretly dating” each other in May 2021 following his breakup with the television personality Kim Kardashian. Other than her appearance in his music video, he also name-dropped her, amongst several models, in his 2010 single, “Christian Dior Denim Flow.”

Toward the end of the first verse, West rapped, “I’m wilding, I’m on a thousand. I wanna see Irina Shayk next to Doutzen.” Neither has confirmed or denied the dating rumors.

In addition to modeling, Shayk voiced the character Mila Belova for the video game, Need for Speed: The Run (2011). She also appeared in the music video for Romeo Santos and Marc Anthony’s “Yo También” (2014) and made her film debut as Megara in Hercules (2014).
