Well that's certainly one for the resumé. Irina Shayk, a Russian girl from a modest-sized town in the Urals who was once more interested in practicing piano than obliging the boys that lusted after her, led Team Russia into Sochi's Fisht Olympic Stadium at today's Opening Ceremonies.

As for the outfit, the neckline may be higher and the hem lower than Irinatypically prefers, but she has never looked so proud. And while all the other women leading their respective countries donned the same "ice queen" get-up, none of them came close to topping that supermodel strut.
