W Magazine got the beauty secrets of Russian Victoria Secret model Irina Shayk who is 5-months preggers with her and Bradley Cooper‘s first child together. Shayk caught my eye years ago when she used to date soccer star Christian Ronaldo and more recently because of her lean lines and penchant for being very strategic in her use of sheer. Recently, the gorgeous brunette scored a major endorsement deal as the face for the Swiss brand Bally’s Spring 2017 campaign. She’s feature din 80’s pop art inspired looks with bold make up.
In their sit down, here are my fave Q&As:
Who is your Eighties style icon?
There were so many that came out of the 1980’s, but I would have to say Madonna.
What decade had the best style and why?
I don’t think there is a best or a worst decade for style. Fashion is all about self-expression. Something that was once a fashion faux pas is the trend of the season in the future.
Describe your personal style
Simple chic. Less is more.
Where is your favorite place to shop?
Whenever I’m in a new city I like to explore the local shops, so I can find any place to shop. But, I would have to say that Paris is still my favorite city for shopping.
All black and comfortable shoes. Right now I love the iconic Bally men’s tennis shoes. I think it’s cool to mix menswear in to your daily look.
Who is your style icon and why?
Elizabeth Taylor. Not only was she a fashion icon that exuded class, but she’s also an icon for me because of her groundbreaking charity work with amfAR and all of the awareness she raised for the AIDS crisis when everyone else turned their backs on an entire community. To me, that’s a true icon and trailblazer.
What are your beauty essentials?
I’m a L’Oreal woman, of course, and using the Pure Clay mask twice a week is a great way to purify your skin after a stressful week or long flight. On a daily basis, I use the Ideal Moisture lotion twice a day and the L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Million Lashes mascara before heading out to a dinner.
