More Pictures of Irina Sheik from Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011
Well guys as I’m sure all of you already know Irina Sheik also known as Irina Shayk has made the cover of the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue and boy do we love it! I guess with a last name as Shaykhlislamova given at birth it just makes sense to shorten it to either of them above but dam girl pick one.
Irina Shayk started her career relatively late for a model, at the age of 19, when she began modeling in Paris. In 2007 she replaced Ana Beatriz Barros as the face of Intimissimi and in the same year debuted in the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, gaining international recognition as a rookie. Since that time, she has appeared in every annual edition, attending photoshoots in such places as St Petersburg, Naples, Grenada and Chile.
After being the image of Intimissimi for three years (six seasons), Shayk was made the official ambassador for the brand in 2010. Her other modeling contracts include Beach Bunny (2009), and Guess spring/summer 2009. Her magazine covers include Annabelle Germany may 2005, Switzerland’s Bolero june 2005, Woman Spain july 2005, Greek magazine Jalouse february 2006, and french magazine Paris Capital 2009.
On February 14, 2011 The Late Show with David Letterman revealed her on a billboard to be the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl. This is the fifth time she’s been featured in the magazine, but the first time she’s been on the cover, as well as being the first Russian to have been given that prominence.
