Irina Shayk was born on January 6, 1986 in Yemanzhelinsk, Russian SFSR, Soviet Union. She studied music at a young age, having been enrolled in a music school for seven years. After high school, she studied marketing but became bored and decided to enter a beauty school instead where she was discovered.
She then joined the Miss Chelyabinsk 2004 beauty pageant and won. As a model, she became known for her appearances on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She went on to venture into acting where she made her feature film debut in 2014’s Hercules.
Has Irina Shayk had Plastic Surgery?
The Russian model has earned mainstream success in her own right, thanks to her high-profile appearances in prominent magazines showcasing her head-turning figure and ferocious beauty. As she continues to achieve recognition abroad, Shayk also attracts the attention of observers critical to her physical transformation. As she appeared in the 2011 cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, her appearance was put to further inspection. Known for her voluptuous body, particularly her prominent cleavage, it is believed her full breasts are natural and not a result of breast implants.
But this doesn’t mean she hasn’t had something done on other parts of her body. Fans and critics alike think her lips could have been a product of a cosmetic procedure, specifically a lip augmentation. Plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer said: “I don’t think that Irina Shayk has had any breast enhancement cosmetic surgery. Her body seems in natural proportion. Her lips are very full and may have been enhanced with dermal filler injections such as Restylane or Juvederm.”
