Although it hasn’t been all that long since Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk called it quits (they broke up in June, 2019), one scroll through her IG would make you wonder if the model was even sad about the break-up. We do have to praise her work ethic though, given that she did not seem to take any time off, but we wonder if this was something that the former couple had been talking about for a while.
The Russian model and A Star is Born actor and director dated for about 4 years, and although there were some murmurs that the two had gotten engaged, neither of them ever confirmed anything. They do, however, co-parent their daughter Lea, and have both said that she is their top priority.
We don’t doubt that Bradley’s main focus nowadays is his daughter, but we do have to wonder if he misses his ex at all. When your ex is as gorgeous as Irina, there are no doubt some feelings still there... Here are 20 photos of Irina Shayk that probably make Bradley Cooper miss her. Enjoy!
20 Fashion Show In Verona
Irina recently attended the Intimissimi Fashion Show in Verona, Italy, and she certainly looked the part. She wore a black, shirt dress on the night, but her shoe-wear was the real showstopper; those black thigh-high boots set her apart. She may have showed up alone, but we’re sure she received a lot of attention that night.
19 Legs For Days
How is this 33 year old a mom? Your guess is as good as ours. Irina definitely knows how to steal the spotlight, and we wonder how Bradley Cooper used to feel when he stepped out with the model by his side. One thing is for sure, she fits the model description to a T. Her green dress in the photo above is stunning, but we think her perfectly toned legs are the real focus here.
18 Look Away, Bradley
We seriously don’t know how Bradley Cooper was able to let this girl go… We know that looks are not everything, but photos like this one must really make him want to pull his hair out. Irina posed for the Italian intimate clothing brand Intimissimi in 2017, and we completely understand why the brand uses her for a lot of their campaigns, and has her walk runways for their shows.
17 Simply Gorgeous
It’s clear that Shayk does not need a team of makeup artists or a curve-hugging gown to look breathtaking, as evidenced by the photo above. All Irina is wearing in this shot, which she posted to IG, is a white cotton t-shirt and a pair of boxer briefs. She captioned the photo” 'Staying cosy in my @intimissimiuomo ☕️❄️ #IntimissimiUomo.'
16 On The Runway
This is a shot of Irina strutting her stuff on the runway just one week after her split with Bradley Cooper was announced. Did she look fazed? We think not. The model looked like a total badass walking a catwalk in Florence, Italy, for the CR Runway Luisaviaroma 90th Anniversary Show. She looked more confident than ever in her latex-style dress.
15 Behind The Scenes
If there’s one thing fans love, it’s celebs posting photos of what they’re doing behind the scenes. This model is not afraid to give normal folks a glimpse of what it really takes to be a model, and we’re glad she does. In the photo above, Irina looks absolutely focused, but for some reason, we can’t help but stare at her perfectly plumped lips.
14 With Daughter Lea
If you’ve seen photos of Bradley Cooper with his daughter Lea, you’ve probably spotted the resemblance between the two immediately. After all, she’s got her father’s eyes. When looking at this photo of Irina with Lea wearing matching Burberry outfits though, it’s obvious she’s her mother’s daughter. Bradley and Irina are said to be on good terms when it comes to co-parenting, but we can’t help but wish the two were still together.
All we have to say is “wow!” Although Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk are no longer a couple, we are certain Cooper still enjoys scrolling through his ex-gf’s IG account just to get a glimpse of selfies like this. The 33 year old model is an absolute beauty, and this selfie just proves why she’s one of the most sought-after models today.
12 In Cannes
Look away, Bradley… Shayk showed up to the 70th Cannes Film Festival for the screening of the film Hikari, wearing a figure-hugging yellow gown. As if this model wasn’t already stunning enough, the dress she chose seemed as though it was made for her, as it accentuated her curves in all the right ways. Oh, and did we mention this was only 2 months after she gave birth to her daughter?
11 With Her Ex
Irina dated professional soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo for about five years, and the two seemed inseparable since they got together in 2010. In fact, Ronaldo has said; “She’s the one that got away,” when speaking about his ex.
Although both went on to have serious relationships with other partners after they called it quits, we’re certain Bradley Cooper doesn’t like to be reminded of their relationship.
10 Those Eyes
Not only is Irina perfectly bronzed all year long (just look at her skin color...), but this girl's eyes are beyond mesmerizing. We wonder how Bradley Cooper got anything done around her. She posted this selfie to IG, and it really proves why she earned her Sports Illustrated accolades in 2011. Anyone who looks this good in a bikini (and without any makeup on) deserves a cover.
9 Those Legs
Irina doesn't need to only dine at high-end restaurants, because she's sure to steal the show no matter where she goes. No matter which fashion brand the model is collaborating with, it seems like she becomes very dedicated to the brand. Case in point, she posted this photo to her IG and captioned it: "Fun night with my @falconeriofficial family store opening."
8 All Smiles (While Eating Pasta)
Whoever said that models DO NOT EAT CARBS was sorely mistaken. It's clear that Irina is one of the most popular and ground-breaking models in the industry today, and if she could indulge in a delicious plate of pasta, then we don't know why other models could not.
7 Sports Illustrated
Irina gained fame when she graced the cover of the iconic Sports Illustrated Magazine Swimsuit Issue in 2011, and when looking at the photo above, it’s obvious why she earned the coveted spot. Although it has been close to 10 years since Irina first appeared on the magazine cover, it seems as though she hasn’t aged a day since then.
It might come as a shock to some, but modeling wasn’t always the plan for Irina. In fact, her mother wanted her to go to school and study music. We’re not saying that she would not have been a successful musician, but we seriously could not picture Irina as anything other than a successful model, and photos like the one above really prove that.
5 Blonde Bombshell
Irina took a lot of her fans by surprise when she seemed to suddenly become a blonde bombshell overnight. She posted this behind the scenes photo to offer a sneak peek of her Vogue photoshoot. Although the new look was for the shoot only, it’s safe to say that the Russian model looks amazing no matter what her hair color is.
4 Lady In Red
Although Irina is often said to be from Russia, she was actually born in Yemanzhelinsk, Soviet Union. When she began to gain recognition after appearing on the cover of Sports Illustrated, it’s safe to say that she became unstoppable. When looking at a photo like the one above, it’s no wonder that she is ranked as an “industry icon” by Models.com.
3 The Cold Doesn’t Bother Her
Irina posted this photo shortly after the news broke that her and Bradley Cooper had officially called it quits. They say that time heals all wounds, but it looks like working can do the trick, too. Shayk was quick to get back to the modeling game after her relationship came to an end, working a photoshoot in Iceland for the brand, Falconers.
2 Working It On The Elliptical
We don't know how it's even possible, but looking at this photo of Irina makes us want to work out... The model posted this photo to her IG during Paris Fashion Week. We get that attending Fashion Week means celebs need to look polished and stylish from head to toe, but wearing a red mini-dress with red, high heels to work out does seem like it's a little much... Regardless though, we're still digging this pic.
1 Another One With Ronaldo
We already talked about the high-profile relationship Irina was involved in prior to meeting Bradley Cooper, and although it ended a while ago now, in 2015, we still think these sort of photos would bother her baby daddy, Bradley. After all, Cristiano Ronaldo IS one of the World's most marketable athletes. That's pretty intimidating, to say the least.
