Irina Shayk: Swimsuit Model in Manhattan
Irina Shayk gives photographers a thumbs up while running errands on Tuesday (March 1) in New York City.
The 25-year-old Russian model and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl is back home after spending some time in L.A., where she appeared on Chelsea Lately.
Irina recently shared how she first kicked off her career while living in Yemanzhelinsk, a small town in Russia.
“It is a funny story. It is because of my mom. She saw an ad at the bus stop about a beauty school and I went there with my sisters for fun,” she told the WSJ.
“There was a model school next door and that’s how I got discovered. One manager came and signed me. I was 19,” she said.
