Irina Shayk's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover Unveiled

Irina Shayk heats up the cover of the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, which was revealed Monday on The Late Show with David Letterman.

The 25-year-old Russia model, who’s dating soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, wore a Sauvage by Elizabeth Southwood bikini with an Ettika bracelet while posing for photographer Bjorn Iooss on the beaches in Hawaii and the Philippines.

“There were 10 models there to do [Letterman's] Top 10 List, and nobody knows until the last minute who the cover will be,” Irina said. “And then I saw it, and I couldn’t believe it.”

Also featured in SI’s 2011 Swimsuit Issue, currently on newsstands: last year’s cover girl Brooklyn Decker, Chrissy Teigen, and Anne V.

FYI: Irina is the magazine’s first Russian cover model and is making her fifth appearance in the annual issue!
