Irina Shayk resets her skin after long-haul travel by using a gold-infused face mask.

The Russian supermodel is one of the most sought-after names in the fashion world, having landed campaigns for the likes of Intimissimi lingerie, Versace, and Burberry.

Irina’s busy schedule means she often has to travel by plane, and in a new interview with British Vogue, explained that she uses luxury skincare products to combat the drying conditions of very long flights.

“I always make sure I moisturise my skin a lot when I travel, as the air on a plane is really dry. To revive my skin after long-distance flights, I use special masks, like Mimi Luzon’s Sparkling Champagne Mask – it moisturises and refreshes the skin and gives it a healthy glow,” she shared. “When I travel for work, I always see my beauty queen, Mimi Luzon, and do 24-carat gold mask treatments for extra glow.”

The Mimi Luzon Sparkling Champagne Mask, which is designed to infuse skin with oxygen and a high concentration of antioxidant botanicals, is priced at $279 (£215), while the Mimi Luzon 24K Pure Gold Dust contains specially formulated powdered cosmetic grade gold leaf that, when added to moisturiser, is claimed to “improve the skin’s appearance by tightening and smoothing wrinkles, improving localised blood circulation and metabolism and giving the skin a natural glow”. The 24K Pure Gold Dust costs $149 (£115).

Elsewhere in the chat, Irina insisted that the rest of her skincare routine is rather minimal. To tackle any puffiness, she will simply run an ice cube over her face, while she avoids wearing make-up when off-duty.

“Usually I don’t wear make-up during the day, or if I do, (I) use a tiny bit of concealer for the under-eye area,” the 34-year-old added.

Irina Shayk would rather receive a tomato plant than an extravagant bouquet of flowers.

The Russian supermodel is one of the most beautiful women in the world, having landed campaigns for the likes of Intimissimi lingerie, Versace, and Burberry.

But while Irina is undoubtedly regularly gifted with flowers, in a new interview for the latest digital issue of Harper’s Bazaar, she explained that she prefers getting living plants.

“Every time people send me flowers, I’m like, just send me a tomato plant!” she laughed to the publication, adding that she is a little old-fashioned when it comes to being courted by potential suitors. “Nobody’s sending letters to anyone anymore. I really believe if you go for dinner with somebody, you don’t have to send them a text or keep them updated on Instagram message. You freaking pick up the phone, call and say, ‘Let’s have dinner.'”

Irina was most recently in a relationship with actor Bradley Cooper, with whom she shares two-year-old daughter Lea De Seine. While the couple reportedly split in June, the model has no qualms about being single, especially as she grew up surrounded by a group of strong women.

“Women are the ones who can handle everything. Women can raise the kids, women can do the job, and when she’s back, she can cook and clean and do the heavy work too!” the 33-year-old recalled of the women in her homeland, adding that she’s not afraid to be hands-on at home. “People think I have a team of like 20 people, but it’s going to make me more nervous to have somebody else to help me. I think I like to be not helped…If I need to put a nail in the wall or move a sofa, oh yea, I can do it.”

Irina Shayk has laughed off reports suggesting she has undergone cosmetic surgery.

The Russian supermodel is one of the most beautiful women in the world, having landed campaigns for the likes of Intimissimi lingerie, Versace, and Burberry.

However, in a new interview for the latest digital issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Irina explained that comments about her features and the work she has supposedly had done always makes her chuckle.

“If I read (a headline) and it’s like, ‘She had injections, her lips look like dumplings,’ I just laugh, because it just makes me,” she told the publication. “I don’t want to say it makes me happy, but I think in this life you have to have a sense of humour.

“With everything that’s going on in the world, you have to take it easy. Some people are going to love you, some people are going to hate you. It doesn’t really disturb my life.”

Irina, who shares two-year-old daughter Lea with former boyfriend Bradley Cooper, went on to insist that she doesn’t judge anyone who decides to get injections or undergo plastic surgery. And she is adamant that she is not too worried about getting older.

“If somebody wants to inject their lips because they feel bad, God bless them. I don’t judge anyone. I always promote natural beauty because I think we live in this perfect world where everyone wants to be perfect. But I’m not perfect. Sometimes I have a double chin. Perfection doesn’t exist,” the 33-year-old mused. “I’m going to have wrinkles and I have wrinkles. You just have to accept the idea of ageing and of bodies at every stage, and just celebrate it. In life, we have to let it go and understand it’s a human process not to be perfect.”

Sarah Jessica Parker has joined forces with lingerie brand Intimissimi for a sexy new sleepwear campaign.

The former Sex and the City star unveiled the new capsule on Tuesday (16Apr19), posing for a series of stunning images to show off the sexy attire – the actress posed sporting the Italian brand’s Triangle Bra collection and pyjama sets in front of a New York city backdrop. Among the new pieces are comfortable bra designs and silk, lace and cotton loungewear.

“With @intimissimiofficial silk pajamas this gorgeous, there’s really no need to change when you wake,” Parker said in a post on Instagram.

The sultry offerings also include the wireless Tiziana Lace Triangle Bra, featuring a plunging V-neck, light padding and an adjustable back and straps. The Emma Silk Triangle Bra is available unpadded and wireless for comfort, while the coral-coloured Delicate Flowers Lace Triangle Bra adds a colourful touch to the line.

“Intimissimi and Sarah Jessica Parker come together to send a strong and positive message: personality and sensuality,” a statement from Intimissimi representatives reads. “Sarah Jessica Parker is the empowering woman that has found the key to success in her own intelligence, charisma and personal femininity.”

The 54 year old has been rather busy with projects outside of acting – last month (Mar19), she announced plans to launch a line of wine products.

Parker will join forces with tastemakers at the New Zealand-based Invivo Wines for the venture and took to YouTube to share her passion for the collaboration.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” she said in a clip ahead of the impending unveiling. “I feel really lucky. It’s pretty freakin’ special!”

Irina Shayk has sent pulses racing with her latest campaign for lingerie brand Intimissimi.

The Russian beauty, who has been the face of the Italian label for over a decade, models an array of pieces for the brand’s most recent collection.

Donning a selection of lingerie and loungewear pieces – including silk robes, underwear, pyjamas, and sweat jackets – Irina takes the opportunity to flaunt her incredibly taut and toned physique in the process.

Speaking to InStyle about her many years of work with the brand, the model shared the key role that the label has shared in the development of her career and explained why she has collaborated with them for so long.

“Intimissimi is a very special brand for me,” the 33-year-old confessed to the publication. “Back in 2007 when I had just started modelling, Intimissimi was the first big brand that chose me for (a) campaign, and I learned a lot from my work with them.

“We’ve worked together for so many years now that the team has become like a family for me.”

Irina went on to declare her love for the brand and claimed that she favours the pieces because they make her feel confident and empowered.

“The lingerie makes every woman feel very sexy, and I love how it looks – especially if I wear a silk blouse or dress over it,” she gushed. “I think that if a woman wears comfortable and beautiful pieces, she definitely feels (more) confident and attractive.”

Intimissimi’s latest collection launched online and in stores on Tuesday (02Apr19).

Irina Shayk eats cake during lingerie photoshoots

Irina Shayk isn’t afraid to eat her favourite cake while shooting lingerie campaigns.

The Russian supermodel rose to fame in 2007 when she was tapped as the face of underwear brand Intimissimi and has since gone on to model for Victoria’s Secret, Givenchy, Versace, and Guess, among many other big name brands.

Irina recently shot new marketing imagery for Intimissimi, and over the course of the day, explained to a reporter at W magazine that she had been snacking on her beloved Russian cake to keep her “energy up”.

“(I eat) a good amount of cake. I’m trying to stay away from coffee because I think it makes you so dry, especially in the winter. When I wake up, I have a hot glass of water and with lemon, and one cup of coffee and definitely some cake,” she said, adding that she doesn’t actually do much baking herself. “I’m a really bad cook. I just eat cakes.”

In spite of indulging in sweets, Irina went on to share that she hasn’t been hitting the gym much lately.

The brunette beauty, who shares 22-month-old daughter Lea de Seine with her actor partner Bradley Cooper, instead prefers to go to Russian saunas.

“Well, I’m Russian, so I do a Russian sauna at least once or twice a week. It’s different because you get hit by a hot broom, and it opens your pores and cleans your skin. Then you jump in a cold plunge and the difference in temperature makes your skin tighter. It’s a Russian ritual that I’ve been doing since I was a kid. And I don’t believe in facials. I really don’t. I don’t believe in going somewhere and pay someone $300 to rub cream on your face!” the 33-year-old smiled.

Elsewhere in the chat, Irina noted that family is the “most important thing” to her. But she is adamant that her personal style hasn’t changed at all since she became a mother.

“No. Not at all. Sometimes (people) will be like, ‘Oh, she’s a mom and she’s wearing this?’ I’m like, ‘Give me a break, girl,'” she sighed. “Just because you are a mom and you have a baby doesn’t mean you have to change and dress different.”

Sarah Jessica Parker has proved she’s still a fan of sex in the city by flaunting her figure for a new Intimissimi lingerie campaign shot on the streets of New York.

The star tapped into her Manhattan roots by donning a silky black pyjama set and a black balconette bra from the new line, while posing on the hood of a yellow taxi cab in one notable shot for the new ads, which feature the 53 year old in seductive poses all over the Big Apple.

Sarah Jessica admits she was inspired by her adventurous Sex and the City character, Carrie Bradshaw, while voguing for the Intimissimi photos, admitting that wearing lingerie as part of casual outfits is something she and her TV and film alter ego share.

“I’m liberated that it’s back,” she told People when asked about the idea of wearing lingerie as casual clothing. “I’m so happy because I never stopped doing it. It’s one thing that we did (on the show) that did overlap with me and that character Carrie.”

Sarah Jessica is thrilled with her new brand partnership, admitting every bit of the collaboration was a joy: “My entire collaborative time with Intimissimi has really been lovely. It’s a great group to work with,” she shared. “They’re creative, exciting, and they don’t mind challenges and, of course, shooting in New York presents challenges – it’s not always easy. It was a total delight to shoot and it’s a thrill to work with this company.”

Sarah attended the Intimissimi fall/winter 2018 line fashion show in Verona, Italy on Thursday (06Sep18), which was also attended by newlywed fashion influencer Chiara Ferragni and British style icon Alexa Chung.

Supermodels Irina Shayk, Anne V and Isabeli Fontana led the runway show, wearing sexy items such as bodysuits, bras and thongs from the collection.

Irina Shayk, Natalia Vodianova and Natasha Poly have been tapped to star on the cover of Vogue Russia to mark the publication’s 20th anniversary.

The fashion publication, helmed by editor-in-chief Masha Fedorova, was launched in 1998 and is credited with helping Russian women keep informed on style and trends.

To celebrate 20 years in circulation, Russian supermodels Irina, Natalia and Natasha have been shot by photographer Giampaolo Sgura, with the cover image depicting them walking barefoot in a grand hallway while sporting floral Saint Laurent minidresses from designer Anthony Vaccarello’s latest collection.

“CELEBRATION! SEPTEMBER ISSUE…..@voguerussia 20th ANNIVERSARY with the most beautiful Russian Girls,” Giampaolo captioned a snap of the cover on his Instagram page. “What can you do when u have to shoot the most beautiful girls in the world together (sic) ????? Ask them to be themselves…..thx (thanks) GIRLS it was a Blast!”

In addition, each of the models were photographed separately for individual cover images, with Franco Gobbi in charge of the hairstyles and make-up artist Helene Vasnier heading up the glam squad.

For her image, Irina is seen posing in a figure-hugging black Versace dress which gives a glimpse of her Intimissimi undergarment.

“So happy wearing my favourite @versace @intimissimiofficial on my second September anniversary cover Thank u @giampaolosgura @mashavoguerussia.. and @tracycohensayag for my magical facial before the shoot,” the 32-year-old wrote alongside an image of her cover.

Natalia, 36, is pictured standing in a black strapless Michael Kors dress and clutching balloons in her solo cover, while 33-year-old Natasha donned a Prada dress with large bow detail on the shoulder.

“Happy 20th Birthday @voguerussia I Am So Proud To Be A Part Of This Celebration Issue. What You Guys Think About My Second Cover? Big Thank You To The Team,” the fashion star added.

Sarah Jessica Parker has been tapped to star in lingerie brand Intimissimi’s new campaign.

The actress is best known for her role as Carrie Bradshaw on hit HBO TV series Sex and the City, on which she was often seen sporting quirky outfits which were matched with designer shoes.

Sarah, 53, has previously shown off her flair for fashion in commercials for clothing brands Gap and Jordache and beauty company Garnier and now she’s about to branch out into the underwear market with a campaign for Italy-based Intimissimi.

Paparazzi photographs taken earlier in the week (begins04Jun18), show the actress walking around Manhattan’s West Village while wearing one of Intimissimi’s signature black “bralette” designs under a pair of navy blue satin pyjamas.

The look was topped off with a blingy necklace and matching bracelets, an embellished purse and a pair of sparkly silver pointed pumps from her SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker footwear collection.

Since then, editors at WWD have reported that Sarah was shooting marketing imagery for Intimissimi and has been confirmed by label bosses as the new face of the brand.

The advertising is due to drop in October. Sarah follows in the footsteps of model Irina Shayk, actress Dakota Johnson, sportswoman Ana Ivanovic and blogger Chiara Ferragni in fronting an Intimissimi campaign.

Sarah has not commented on her latest gig or shared photos on social media. However, on Thursday, she marked the 20th anniversary of Sex and the City by uploading a snap of one of her outfits to her Instagram page.

“Choosing pictures/words, almost impossible. Where to begin? It’s too much. ‘Were those some of the best years of your life?’Abso-f&*#-ing-lutely. X, SJ,” she captioned the snap.

As well as acting in HBO show Divorce, Sarah also runs her footwear and accessories label and most recently unveiled her first bridal range as part of a collaboration with U.S. company Gilt.

Chiara Ferragni has been tapped as Lancome’s latest brand ambassador.

The Italian fashion star has risen to prominence since launching her blog The Blonde Salad in 2009 and now boasts over 11 million followers on Instagram.

Chiara has previously teamed with brands such as Tod’s, Pantene and Intimissimi, and is now gearing up to follow in the footsteps of Julia Roberts, Penelope Cruz, Taylor Hill, Lupita Nyong’o and Lily Collins in partnering with the French luxury giant.

“Collaborating with Chiara Ferragni symbolises our willingness to inspire young women with relatable models,” said Francoise Lehmann, general manager of Lancome International, in a statement. “Chiara’s international aura and role model position aligns with the values of strength and modernity that Lancome holds dear.”

Last September (17), Chiara was ranked first in the Forbes list of most powerful fashion influencers, and in addition to her online ventures, is also branching out into apparel by expanding her Chiara Ferragni Collection of footwear and accessories.

And the 30-year-old, who is currently expecting her first child with her rapper fiance Fedez, has explained that teaming with Lancome felt like a natural step.

“I’m so excited by this unique collaboration with Lancome. I have been a fan of the brand since I was a young girl in Cremona. The perfume, Tresor, has been the scent of my teenager years. I respect and share the values and the history of the brand,” she said. “I am proud that, through my ventures and influence, Lancome entrusted me with this role of muse.”

Now based in Los Angeles, Chiara will promote Lancome via her social media pages and other advertising projects which are currently being kept under wraps.
