Irina Shayk’s Style Evolution, From Bombshell to Fashion Darling and New Mom

Hollywood has a new stylish mom. Over the weekend, it was revealed that Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper welcomed a child, the first for both, two weeks ago, making Shayk the latest Victoria’s Secret model to give birth (Behati Prinsloo and Candice Swanepoel both had their first children late last year.) Born in Yemanzhelinsk, Russia, Shayk had her breakout in 2007 after appearing in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Since then, she’s appeared in campaigns for Givenchy, Alberta Ferretti, La Perla, and Roberto Cavalli, among others, countless magazine covers, including W‘s, and walked scores of runways—including last year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. As a regular at the Cannes Film Festival, Met Gala, and other high-profile events, the model has developed a taste for slinky, body-hugging gowns in black and white. Here, a look back the the new mom’s best red carpet style moments.
