Throwback: It’s Not Hard To See Why We’re Still Obsessed With Irina Shayk

Our love for Irina Shayk needs no explanation...but here’s one anyway!

Oh, sorry! We didn’t see you there. We were too busy daydreaming about our girl Irina Shayk! We’ve had so many amazing times with this Russian babe, we don’t even know where to begin when it comes to explaining why we love her.

To say she’s a pro in front of the camera would be an understatement. The ten-time Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model has truly done it all, from posing in nothing but body paint, to swimming with sharks and stingrays to get the perfect shot.

After she joined the SI Swimsuit family in 2007, we knew we’d always have a soft spot for this goddess. Something tells us you probably feel the same way, but, in case you need a refresher, here are five reasons to be obsessed with Irina. 

1. She’s a total star.

2. She’s great at making new friends. 

3. She is the definition of sexy. 

4. She always has a smile on her face. 

5. She even makes getting hit by a wave look good.
