Dressed At Gunpoint: Irina Shayk

Posing on the street in front of a food truck is exactly what this outfit deserves.

Remember when Abbey Crouch wore this look last week and did it better?

Shayk attended a screening of Rock Of Ages in NYC Wednesday night and wore this over-sized menswear inspired look from Calvin Klein. After dazzling us with an array of Roberto Cavalli dresses at Cannes recently, we are trĂ©s disappointed in this. It looks sloppy and the trousers don’t appear to be long enough.

Furthermore, it, er, adds some poundage to her and that’s never flattering. We know what she’s got under there. We don’t fault her for taking a night off from skin-hugging looks, but when your suit looks like an old man’s from 1942 it’s time to rethink it.

In an effort to say something nice we will say that from the neck up she looks perfect and not adding jewellery to such a minimalist look is a great style tip. Your solicited opinions below please.

    Hi there, just became aware of your blog through Google, and found that it’s really informative. I’m gonna watch out for brussels. I will appreciate if you continue this in future. Lots of people will be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

    Nice post. I was checking constantly this weblog and I’m impressed! Extremely useful info specifically the closing phase :) I care for such information much. I used to be looking for this particular info for a very long time. Thanks and good luck.

    This may well be the least harsh comment thread on a Irina Shayk post ever. I've always wondered why she generates so much hate. The meanest, nastiest, most scathing comments are usually on posts about her and comments that get the most likes are usually the meanest ones, and the ones that get a thumbs down are the ones that say that she's pretty (what is up with THAT?!). She may not be your idea of beautiful, you may not like her/her boyfriend/her lifestyle but there's no need to tear her to pieces, which is what a lot of commenters do on posts about her. In this post, at least most comments are about how ill-fitting her clothes are (which they are).

    There may be hope for us yet.

    She is gorgeous no matter what she wears, she always looks perfect.

  5. Kristina says:

    As always, I think she is beautiful. And as always I think her posing is bad. But she doesn't deserve the hatred that she gets.

  6. drea says:

    I don't get it, why does the runway model look so good in that outfit? I'm sure Irina and her are almost the same size and height. Is the suit the runway girl wearing even bigger than the one Irina has on for it to flow like that? It's like Irina's suit has been over-starched or something….

    • mata says:

      I wondered about that too because I really like it on the model, I think it comes down mostly to fit and cut. Irina's jacket doesn't fit properly, especially over the shoulders, and the arms are about a half an inch too short. And she put a white top under the jacket which clutters that nice sharp V that the model has. Also, the trousers appear to be cut differently; on Irina they appear to be fuller on top and then taper towards the ankle which ruins the flow. With her hair pulled back in a loose chignon and some minor tweeking (and different shoes) this could have been so nice.

    I think she looks a bit too old for her age..But beautiful anyway. By the way Dutch beauty Yolanthe Sneijder-Cabau won the EURO WAG 2012 competition by Italian newspaper Gazetta dello Sport. Irina Shayk came second.

    • drea says:

      LOL! Euro WAG??? For real? Football really does have something for everyone, doesn't it?

  8. xoWinnie says:

    i like her make-up here, facially, she looks stunning.
    that outfit though…honey, no :(

  9. KL7 says:

    For a model, I think she looks absolutely terrible when she poses. She looks like she is trying too hard..she even looks manly sometimes. In candid shots she is more natural with less makeup and is much prettier. And I don't get why her hair always looks greasy! It's gross.

  10. Mag says:

    Oh yeaahh!! In Cannes with the red dress theres pictures where the back zipper was holding her skin, ouch! And another picture with some old man & she was touching her vagina. I honestly can’t think of her as ‘classy’ no matter how covered up she gets. She always shows too much skin, as if being a swimsuit model wasn’t enough skin showing, and it makes her look like a typical attention wh*re. She’s beautiful from the face (except her lips & nose), but it would be better if she dressed different and stayed home instead of showing up at events that she has nothing to do with. Geez the limelight isn’t always good.

  11. Dee says:

    I think Irina is a beautiful woman but her looks are always hit or miss to me. Sometimes she looks stunning (like at the Chopard party in Cannes) and other times, I'm sorry, but she looks ugly. She looks the best in candid shots with very little make up. Sometimes I wish she would wear a summery girly kind of dress that isn't too fitted because she's always overly sexy showing off legs or cleavage when she doesn't need to be…it makes her look cheap sometimes. Anyway, she is gorgeous but my all time favorite Russian model is Valentina Zelyaeva….she is the standard of beauty and class.

  12. Agnes Wonka says:

    She looks classy, but the pants are not her size :S

  13. laligagirl says:

    The trousers ruin the whole outfit.

  14. Mariëlla says:

    Blazer is all right but why didn't she wear some nice pants?

  15. Kel says:

    Abbey's looked better because it was fitted and she had better accessories and shoes.
    Irina really gets around these events, doesn't she?

  16. Rachael says:

    I don’t think Abbey did it better Irina carries off the colour so much better but it’s not a great fasion look in general

  17. AC_USA says:

    Dear God three Irina's can fit in those pants :) Not just the one :)

  18. christybarca says:

    Although she is one of my favourite models and I really admire her she looks very very ungly in this photo her hair her suit I don't know, extremely bad combination…

  19. iram1982 says:

    i dont understand why they even model the kinda suit. Honestly Kickettes, would u ever wear a low cut blazer/jacket without a blouse underneath? I have never seen any woman fashion her suit like that!

  20. hello says:

    i laugh at girls who criticize other girls' looks

  21. gigi says:

    Someone once told me that a suit is all about fit, particularly at the shoulders/armpits for the jacket and the waist/crotch for the pants, even if it's meant to be over or under-sized. Unfortunately for Irina, I doubt if she did a fitting for this before she chose to wear it. The only thing that works for me here is her purse.

  22. LizzyHS90 says:

    Looks drunk, hair is greasy, suit too big, trying too hard to be Angelina, yet at another movie red carpet she had nothing to do with, looks manly.

    Oh and BTW in the red Cavalli dress at Cannes she flashed her ass and her underwear. I'm not joking there are pictures. Classy.

    • xoWinnie says:

      why are you always so far up her ass? you take this hating her thing real seriously, don't you? #obsessed.

      • Kristina says:

        I know, right?! What's up with that?

      • LizzyHS90 says:

        Why is it you only reply to MY comments and no one else? You are up my ass and btw my comments are usually well liked. If you don't like my comments then ignore them.

        • xoWinnie says:

          because you're the only one who claims not to care about her and yet CONSTANTLY provides details about what Irina had for lunch and what time she took a sh*t. lol so an opinion is not valid unless it's "well-liked"? so other people are haters like you *slow clap* congrats!

          • LizzyHS90 says:

            I don't "care" about others on here yet I comment on other posts that have nothing to do with irina but yet YOU only comment back to me when I comment about her. I think your definition of "details" isn't correct. All I said there are pictures I saw (someone emailed me a link) to her flashing her stuff at Cannes. Like I said to you before, if you don't like my comments then ignore them. It's that f*cking simple. BTW my comments are well liked because they are truth.

            • xoWinnie says:

              that's because your comments about her are predictable and constant. you're telling me not to comment to you if i don't like what you have to say…i don't care what you have to say really, i'm just pointing out that people like you are funny. always claim to hate so and so but are always the first to comment on their posts and know everything that's going on in their lives. your "truth" is not everyone's truth sweetie, hate to burst your bubble. there are plenty of women who can recognize beauty in another without being catty and overly judgemental.

    • Kat says:

      People do attend movie premieres even if they are not connected to the movie, you know.

      • LizzyHS90 says:

        Not as many as she does. How many in the last 2 years??? More movie premieres then runways I'm sure. #notasupermodel

  23. tashy says:

  24. cella.xx says:

    Well….she looks like she took this suit from Cristiano
    It's too big..but still better then Abbey

  25. Jayy says:

    I think if her hair was in a high bun, it would have somehow distracted us from that suit.

  26. Carvivlie says:

    Overall too big–kinda 80's with the shoulder pads

  27. Kristine says:

    Meh. It’s not horrific, just a bit too baggy. And the hem of the pants is weird, kinda looks like a home hem job. She’s still f*in beautiful, no matter what.
