Irina Shayk. Miscegenation Feel Good. Read about her background, career and next projects. 2013 is her year!


Irina Shayk is a Russian model (coming actress in the film Hercules) with a very peculiar beauty. Then, she has managed to be magazine cover in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit and (this is not less important) Cristiano Ronaldo’s girlfriend.

She was born in Yemanzhelinsk, Russia, to ethnic Tatar father and Russian mother. Thus, instead of being another blondie Russian girl, she inherited a particular looks and she has said that people frequently think she is from South America.

However, she inherited the light eyes from her mother and this kind of contrasts usually suit very well.

“My father was dark skinned, because he was Tatar, sometimes Tatars can look Brazilian, but I get my light eyes from my mother.” Irina has said.

However, miscegenation is not only the result of her parents’ different skin colors. Her mother was a pianist and her father a coal miner. Then, Irina Shayk started playing piano and singing in a choir at age six… Good start for her future! But her father died soon leaving the family without money. Again, her background saved her. This time, the tough background of her father.

Soon, she entered a local beauty school and soon, she participated in the Miss Chelyabinsk 2004 beauty contest where (not surprise) she won.

Ambassador of Intimissimi and modeling for Beach Bunny, Guess, Victoria’s Secret, Lacoste, Cesare Paciotti and Morellato. This young woman could have finish in trouble but now, she is going to be an actress.

Yes, miscegenation feel good! Any doubt? Look at her.

Have a nice Thursday, Yareah Magazine readers and friends!
