    Is it just me for has Irina Shayk professional/work related behaviour/decisions been a bit odd recently?

    First off a few weeks back she was due to be the special guest at the Desigual fashion show in Barcelona but that (she?) cancelled last minute and Bar Refaeli did it instead when Irina wasn’t doing anything in NYC (okay she had a Avon photoshoot a couple of days later but she easily had time for both or rescheduled the Avon shoot which isn’t exactly a big job – especially when you consider how much exposure/column space Bar received from it and may of been paid a decent amount to be the ‘special guest’)

    Also in NYC recently she has been trying to cover her face in candid photo’s – odd from Miss “I love the paps”

    Lastly in this SI she hasn’t done any of the promo/interviews work in the launch week yet (okay, neither has Cintia Dicker yet but she didn’t arrive into the US until mid afternoon yesterday and Irina had been back for quite a few hours before the Letterman filming so could of taken part) and last night she was only at the SI NYC party for 1hr-1hr30mins before going to the CR fashion book party for the rest of the night (considering that big names like Alessandra Ambrosio and (cough) Big Ang didn’t turn up it certainly wasn’t mandatory and considering how good SI have been to her over the years – by featuring her in SISE since 2007 which was her 1st major exposure in the modelling world/her 1st real big break and then gave her the cover in 2011 (which really should of been Anna V’s that year if not for a certain soccer bf) triggering off contracts like Rampage, Replay and XTI as well as many other covers – I think the least she could of done was to give them the whole of the evening, not just a small fraction – it is impolite in my eyes to say the least.

    Also she is the only SI model that is not accounted for on social networks as not being on the SI plane to Vegas last night (my guess from her social sites going on posting times is that she is still in NYC for some reason – but that is a guess). Also I don’t think she is friends with many of the SI girls (only Anna V whom she shares an agent with and prehaps jess gomes.

    Anyway I thought I’d mention it – see what happens today. But it’s been known for a while that her WAG status has inflated her head and made her feel more important and relevant in society then she probably is.

    I for one would be interested to see what would happen to her (career wise) if she and Ronaldo were to part ways – the WAG tag is a double edged sword for models especially – it can get you massive exposure = magazine work and ad campaigns but it also gives you a label that some brands don’t want to attach themselves with (Victoria’s Secret insider Sophia Neophitou once said about Kate Upton – “She’s like a Page 3 girl,” Neophitou continued. “She’s like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy.” – the thing is that Kate Upton isn’t a WAG so doesn’t have that label which may be a major reason why Kate Upton has done so much more with her SI cover aftermaths than Irina did with hers) – i don’t know if anyone has wondered the same :)

  • K R

    All gorgeous girls !

    I love the shoes Anne is wearing.

  • K R

    Irina is featured in the new CR fashion book. So maybe she had to go to both parties and ended up dividing her time. After all CR is very importsnt in the fashion world.

  • Nikki


    I agree with most you say. She got her fame from Ronaldo and anyone who thinks different is an idiot. 3/4 of the covers she got mention Ronaldo . It isn’t hard to figure out. She isn’t Gisle so she won’t get top fashion covers especially in the US. She gets covers in europe and places where soccer/Ronaldo is famous. She got the CR fashion book and Vs cover because she has to share with another model and they have the same agent. Im sure he struck a deal to get her. I can go out on the street and ask 100 people who she is and maybe 5 know. All my guy friends don’t know who she is but sure know who Kate Upton is. I don’t think Anne should of got the cover in 2011 I think Izabel should have or Alyssa. I don’t understand why she is even with SI still because usually after the cover they come back once and then they move on to bigger and better things but imo it is because she really has nothing else to do. I don’t see the appeal of her without Ronaldo.

    Where did you get that information about Barcelona fashion week?
    I’m a huge Irina Shayk fan (she’s the sexiest lingerie model right now) and I agree with you on most parts and I also wondered why she didn’t do as much as Kate after getting a SI cover …I think the whole Ronaldo thing actually worked against her…before she met him she worked for better brands like Guess, Armani, Intimissimi, La Senza and she even worked for VS (I really don’t understand why VS doesn’t hire her because she’s hotter and has a better body than 98% of models currently working for them..but then again their casting choices have been very…strange this year.I mean they hired Cara and a bunch of look-alike blondes, so what else to say) and now she’s doing campaigns for stuff I never heard of (except Replay)…I think if she hadn’t started dating him she would actually get more prestigious campaigns or at least she would have similiar career like Adriana, Izabel or Ana Beatriz..after meeting him, she did get more fame and SI cover and work mostly in Spain, but I think that it kind of ruined her chances of getting more respect and work in fashion business because she is seen as a wag…
    now, when it comes to swimsuit modelling I don’t know if it’s true or not, but I read somewhere that Ronaldo said that he doesn’t like it when she’s half naked all the time and Irina said herself in one interview that she would like to do more high fashion work instead lingerie so if that’s true then that’s why, I guess, she spent more time at CR event instead of SI, she said on her Facebook profile that working with Bruce Weber and Carine was a dream come true for her..

    The girl who talked about the Desigual catwalk forget Irina had a photoshoot more important. Avon came later. There are priorities Desigual wasnt important.
    Talking about SI, its the same better attend CR event. And today working with the amazing Carlyn Cerf is a priority.
    And come one the huge isnt a supermodel but she is getting great opportunities like the VS cover or getting an ed in CR fashion book working with Bruce Weber. She got Twelv cover recently too, getting to work with Mario Testino for Vogue. I cant think she even would have dreamt about that. Good for her.
    All the girls are looking amazing. Anne is stunning Chrissy too.
    By the way judging by IG they are all getting along very well, Chrissy, Irina, Anne, Jess Gomes…

    Quick follow up:

    It’s getting odder – a few hour back Irina posted a pic on instagram with herself in neon makeup and short black hair do with Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele but a few hours later it was deleted.

    I can’t remember a recent year where a SISE model skipped out early out of the nyc launch party and wasn’t on the plane to vegas (as of yet) – my belief is that it is impolite to drop a prior appointment when something ‘better’ comes along (if you arrange something you turn up….unless you have a high fever or something) but i don’t know the whole situation – either way I’ll be surprised if SI ask her back if my thought process on this is along the right lines.

    One thing I will say is that the girl has a talent in making the right friends in the industry (in terms of the friendship connections bringing in the fruit). I think her agent has done a lot of work with/good friends with Carlyne whom in turn is a bit of a go to stylist for high fashion mags/jobs. I think these connections/friendships are the major reason for some of these high fashion jobs she’s been getting – not that she actually is suited to high fashion. I think the girl is a lot cleverer than people give her credit for (in terms of she knows how to get what she wants from others).

    @Nikki – Izabel and Alyssa were rookies that year so that wasn’t going that year – it was a bit of slim pickings that year with anna and brooklyn being the only real comp for the cover that year. Really hope Alyssa gets the cover at some point – i got a feeling she could do a “Kate Upton” if she got it as her look is so versatile: she can do both high fashion and commercial

    @bcb – the original source was on twitter but it is no longer there (a photographer that works on the barcelona fashion week tweeted both times) – i think a fansite facebook may have those posts somewhere.

    Anne looks gorgeous!!!!!! That’s all. Thank You!! :)

  • LI

    Why do you care so much about Irina’s options when you obviously dont like her work? dont you have anything better to do?

  • http://twitter marley06

    @Amanda: same here. i love anne v. and i miss her and adam together. they are such a perfect couple. there was really love between them…

  • http://twitter marley06

    @coc: i agree with you. i could see the happiness on adam eyes when he was with anne, and he was the one clinging on her. i just miss them together. as for behati, she should not surface, im tired seeing her following adam anywhere he goes…

  • bcb

    I saw that photo too and I hope that working with Carlyn means that she’ll get a Vogue cover she deserves or some campaign..I can totally see her in the Dolce&Gabbana or Blumarine campaign or in a fragnance campaign. And I quite liked her high fashion work and hopefully she’ll shoot with Testino again and I liked that editorial for L’Express by Vivanco. Also, you seem to know about her and I saw recently that she shoot for GQ Turkey but I haven’t seen those pictures out yet. Do you know if she’ll be on thecover or is it just an editorial and when will it be released?And do you know when will the CR editorial be out because I’m really curious to see how these pictures look.
    Honestly I think that SI parties aren’t mandatory. I’ve seen some of Irina’s interviews and I got the impression that she’s smart. I also like her sense of humor because she is witty and more sarcastic while other models tend to have “bubbly” personalities which I find annoying. She seems very grateful for every job she does and I think that she wouldn’t avoid any work related commitments for SI or others. Plus I think that SI only cares that Kate does the promo since she’s the cover girl and Irina did appear at NY party even if it was only for an hour.

  • Laura

    I dont get the ” concern ” about Irina’s work coming from a girl who obviously dislike her I dont even understand why she is following her career. I mean the girl does whatever she wants. She doesnt do much runway so she had this opportunity to do Jeremy Scott runway and working with Carlyn Cerf of course she skiped the SI party.

    Anyway Anne V is looking flawless these days I love her. I love Irina and Chrissy too. The girls are stunning
