Luli Fama, the sexy Miami-based swimwear brand and Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition perennial favorite, is getting a little more publicity than it bargained for — just in time for its July 18 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim runway show.
Irina Shayk, the body of Luli Fama’s 2011 advertising campaign and look book, has been getting a lot attention as the 24-year-old Russian supermodel girlfriend of soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
Much ink has been spilled in the gossip columns over the Russian model and Ronaldo, who became a father on July 4, a milestone he conveyed to fans via Twitter.

Ms. Shayk, who starred in the most recent Armani Exchange ad campaign, is reportedly not the baby’s mother (that was a surrogate).
If she had been, her transformation from post-pregnancy figure to lithe, beach-ready not-an-inch-to-pinch, smokin’ hot body would have been nothing short of remarkable.
And while comparing a behind-the-scenes image to Shayk’s final ad, we wondered if Ms. Shayk was actually retouched to look healthier.
It wouldn’t be the first time that editors have had to fatten up a lightweight model. David Tessier shot Shayk last week wearing a variety of jewel-toned little itsy-bitsys at the Viceroy Hotel in Miami.
