Cristiano Ronaldo is quite a lucky guy, especially when his supermodel fiancée Irina Shayk gets to keep some of the clothes from her photoshoots. In a campaign recently revealed for the Italian lingerie company Intimissimi, the model demonstrates her figure in some pretty underwear and debuts a new hair-cut, reports the International Business Times.

Modeling a cheeky red satin knickers and posing in a diaphanous black lace camisole in another, the football superstar’s fiancée Ms Shayk proves why she is well-known as one of the world’s top lingerie models. By the way, the model was ‘discovered’ by Intimissimi’s parent lingerie brand Calzedonia, says the Daily Mail.

Last week Ms. Shayk posed topless on the front cover of the February 2012 issue of Esquire UK, and in an interview for the magazine the model revealed that she had been offered ‘so much money’ to strip for Playboy magazine.

However, Ms Shayk refused, explaining: “I would never do Playboy. Yes, I am a lingerie model, but I have class. Playboy offered me so much money last year. I was like: “No. Way.”

Well, it’s no doubts that Shayk is known for her luxurious body and good looks. The Esquire editorial was not the only magazine for which the Russian supermodel has shed her clothes. She is also known for her work with Sports Illustrated, Victoria’s Secret, ArmaniGQ magazine, Germaine De Capuccini Skin Care and swimwear brand Luli Fama. By the way, Luli Fama has earned No. 6 spot for “Sexiest Ads of 2011.”

Still, unluckily for Playboy, Ronaldo’s girlfriend is not to pose for the magazine: “Alright Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer did it. But they did it at the end of their career and it was classy. I think of myself as a cover girl. But I would never do some kind of cheesy magazine.”

The model also spoke of her love of high heels and short skirts – saying boys didn’t like her when she was young, “I love high heels from the age of 10! Short skirts and then high heels. My classmates used to make fun of me. Like, “Ooh, she’s so skinny and she’s wearing high heels.”

She kept on speaking, “But I just wore what I like and I didn’t care about people’s opinions, the same as I don’t care now. Boys never liked me at school. They made fun of me ‘cos I had dark skin.”

She also mentioned that being stupid won’t provide a long and fruitful career: ‘No one wants to work with a stupid girl. You have to be beautiful on the inside, then people will want to continue to work with you.”

Ms Shayk met Ronaldo after they modeled together for the Armani Exchange campaign, and the couple is said to have been dating since early 2010.

In February last year, Shayk and Ronaldo became engaged on Valentine’s Day. “They had been talking about marriage. Cristiano wanted something very special and romantic, and on Valentine’s Day he travelled to New York to surprise Irina,” said a close friend of the couple.

Ronaldo is already father to a baby boy. His son Cristiano Ronaldo Jr was born on June 17. The identity of the baby’s mother has never been revealed.
