We love beautiful women, whether they're strutting the Victoria's Secret catwalk or taking in the sun on the beaches of St. Barths, but here's a secret: We have a special soft spot for Irina Shayk. The Russian supermodel and former Maxim cover girl somehow manages to star in the steamiest photo shoots we've ever seen, from freeing the nipple for Givenchy denim to stripping down for former Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld's 2016 fashion book.
On Wednesday, Shayk signaled a return to what she does best: posing in lingerie. Shot by famed photographer Sante D’Orazio for Intimissimi, Shayk writhes in black lace underwear in a seductive black-and-white video. As Vogue notes, Shayk first made a splash in the fashion world with a 2006 campaign for the Italian brand. Nearly a decade later, she's returning to her lingerie roots with the brand that made her career.
“It is such an honor to come full circle with the brand that I started with,” she told Vogue. “So much has changed in my career since I worked with them, and I am happy to be a part of the Intimissimi family again.”
We're happy for you, Irina. But after watching this video, we're probably even happier for Bradley Cooper.
