Irina Shayk on Her Style: “I Prefer to Buy Classic Pieces”


Russian model Irina Shayk, who is currently making headlines for her new relationship with actor Bradley Cooper, has spoken on her refined personal style. The model explains that she hates to waste money on clothes that will go out of season quickly, so she prefers classic items and invests in high quality pieces that are more timeless instead. The model also likes to look quite casual and often spends the entire day in gym clothes. She prefers to go natural with hair and makeup when she’s not working too:

”I’ve been pretty smart with my money. I hate to waste money on clothes. I prefer to buy classic pieces that you can have in your closet for years. My style is very simple; I try to be low-key. I can spend my day in sweat pants or gym clothes. When I’m not working I don’t like to dress up; I hate [doing my] hair and make-up – it’s kind of boring.”

Irina believes feeling good about your body can make a big difference to your style and how clothes look, so she works out regularly as part of her job because she’s often put in skimpy swimwear and lingerie. The model says she enjoys fun-filled workouts and says that’s the key to success when approaching fitness:

”To get into lingerie or a swimsuit for a shoot you have to feel your best, and of course you have to train. Lately I’ve taken up ju-jitsu, which is great fun and also great cardio. You have to find something that works for your body. I get bored very easily, so I’m always trying to find something different.”
