Irina Shayk may be dating one of the world’s most famous athletes, but the Russian model seems to be the one getting all the attention lately.
The girlfriend of Real Madrid footballer Cristiano Ronaldo made waves when she showed up to a beach in Miami for Swim Week sporting a small bikini. The 27-year-old spent the day relaxing under an umbrella and swimming in the warm ocean water in a Brazilian cut bikini bottom with a braided leather trim.
She was without her boyfriend for the Miami trip, but Irina Shayk wasn’t alone. She was seen with her agent and friend Ali Kavoussi, laughing and chatting as they tested the waters together.
Being active is nothing new for Irina, who told GQ Russia that it takes a lot of work to maintain her figure.
“I really do love to work out! My favorites are pilates and running along [the] West Side Highway when I’m in New York,” she told the magazine. “It’s hard though when I travel because I get lazy and I love to eat so I just try to find a good balance.”
The trip wasn’t all fun and games for Irina. On Friday she was the guest of honor at the Beach Bunny parade, but held out of actually appearing in the label’s show.
Irina Shayk has also been tearing up the modeling world lately. She was recently spotted in Ibiza, Spain, wearing an unbuttoned orange sun dress and no bra for a photo shoot.
“Not much was left to imagination as she exposed her sexy curves while being pampered by staff during the shoot,” ANI reported.
Because she was born to an ethnic Tatar father and Russian mother, Irina said she has an unusual look that is sometimes mistaken for South American.
“My father was dark-skinned, because he was Tatar, sometimes Tatars can look Brazilian,” she said. “I get my light eyes from my mother.”
