Who is Irina Shayk?

Shayk was born in Yemanzhelinsk (Chelyabinsk Oblast region) in the Soviet Union to a Volga Tatar Muslim father, Valery Shaykhlislamov, a coal miner, and a Russian Orthodox Christian mother, Olga, a kindergarten music teacher. Tatiana Petenkova, her only sibling, is her only sibling. Tatiana’s three daughters, including a niece called “Irina” after her, are her nieces. Her father died of pneumonia-related complications when she was 14, leaving her family in financial straits and forcing her mother to work two jobs to make ends meet.

At the age of six, Shayk started playing the piano. Her mother pushed her to learn music, so she enrolled in a music school when she was nine years old and studied piano and choir for seven years.

In 2007, Shayk succeeded Ana Beatriz Barros as the face of Intimissimi, and she made her debut in the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue the same year. After three years as the brand’s face, Shayk became the official ambassador for Intimissimi in 2010. She also posed for Beach Bunny Swimwear and Guess for the spring/summer 2009 season.

Shayk was the face of Armani Exchange’s advertising campaign for the spring/summer 2010 season. She also starred in Marco Brambilla’s film “Power,” directed by Kanye West. Shayk was unveiled as the cover model for the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in an episode of the Late Show with David Letterman on Valentine’s Day.

Complex magazine placed her #1 on their list of the “50 Hottest Russian Women.” She featured on 14 Cosmopolitan spring covers globally in 2012, including Esquire UK, Harper’s Bazaar Arabia and Ukraine, Marie Claire Ukraine, Spain and Russia, GQ Germany, and Glamour Russia. In 2020, she even walked in the last Jean Paul Gaultier fashion presentation. She walked in the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show at six months pregnant with her daughter Lea de Seine Shayk Cooper.

In the 2014 picture Hercules, Shayk made her acting debut as Megara alongside Dwayne Johnson. She opposes Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022, has expressed her plan to donate to Unicef and the Red Cross to help their humanitarian operations in Ukraine and has encouraged her fans to do the same.
