The fashion industry continues to embrace Irina Shayk as a high-fashion model. She currently stars in the pages of W magazine, took to the pages of Vogue Paris a few months ago and also graced the cover of Interview Germany. Irina is now unveiled as the cover girl for Numéro‘s May 2016 issue, following in the footsteps of Gigi Hadid, Catherine McNeil and Daria Strokous. Photographed by Anthony Maule, Irina looks unrecognizable sporting a short, dark wig and an eye-catching Valentino dress in the stark and dynamic cover shot.
But the fashion-forward cover left our forum members extremely disinterested. “Nope. Just no. The hair, the heavy eye makeup and the intense pose were rendered pointless by the lifeless stare. With that look, you need a striking stare. A stare that is so intense and captivating. I see none of that here. It had all the elements of ‘fierce,’ but the stare ruined it,” complained MON at once.
