Models have become a rare sight on mainstream American fashion glossies. (The last time a model graced the cover of Harper’s Bazaar was over a year ago.) But U.S. Harper’s Bazaar just broke its no-model streak by featuring Irina Shayk on its digital edition. The Russian beauty has quite a few covers under her belt, including Vogue Brazil, Vogue Japan and Vogue Turkey. She’s also recently appeared in campaigns for Versace and Moschino. Photographed by Zoey Grossman, Irina wears a pink Brandon Maxwell creation (picked by Charles Varenne) for the online cover.
Members of our forums were quick to share their thoughts about the cover. “Hate the font. And I suppose despite her breakup with Bradley she’ll still be showing up everywhere?” questioned marsnoop2.
“As she should! She is a successful working model,” fired back Lola701. “And let’s not act like a lot of famous models didn’t have a boost in their careers after a successful relationship with a high profile celebrity.”
“She practically invented Bradley Cooper,” laughed A.D.C.
“Irina is absolutely stunning and doesn’t need a man to get her the spotlight,” noted jorgepalomo.
SLFC felt exactly the same way: “It’s good to see Irina getting a lot more work. She’s drop-dead gorgeous.”
“This editorial is amazing. Sexy, luxurious and Irina looks absolutely great,” raved GivenchyAddict.
“That editorial is stunning!” declared MON.
