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!

    @Party One: I noticed that too! SI just really likes to promote the semi-popular girlfriends of international superstars. Just like Brooklyn and Bar, Irina is definitely going to be more famous now.

    Wanna see who is f***ed by Celebrities….
    Seriously, SI credibility ended in 2008 with Marisa Miller’s cover, and the past *real* supermodels!

    I agree, these semi popular girlfriend covers cheapify the covers and the reputation of the magazine. Soon it will be like the cover of the Hustler or so. Don’t get me wrong, Irina is extremely beautiful, absolutely gorgeous, even if she is pretty much cookie-cutter pretty, rather generic. But her pose looks cheap, and wh*rish, no?

    he shot his mouth off to ryan seacrest how his ‘girl’ was getting the cover…ryan tweeted it instantly….also heard adam tweeted at SI themselves telling them to have her be the cover model. the difference about what @party one listed is that some of these couplings actually fit together; he? not so much. he thought being all up in her events was gonna make them take notice; guess not. maybe next time he should keep his fat mouth closed and think before he tweets and let her get her title based on who she is and all that she’s done and not because she’s with him.

    @Shannon: HA!!!!!!!! Did he really? What a friggin toolbox. That guy is a douchelord.

    Shannon Says:


    yeah he sure did and ryan couldn’t have tweeted about what he said fast enough…he also was tweeting about how awesome it was being at all the SI events that were representing for the super bowl; comparing himself to jerry macquire or something like that. i think his tweet to si was something like ‘i think anne v should get the 2011 swimsuit cover’.

    what also must be stinging big time is that she won’t be the first; since she too is from russia. have you seen any of his recent interviews at all? always putting his little gloat bits in on how he’s always wanted to be with a super model, etc, etc, how it’s always been his dream to get one.
