Drool Over Irina Shayk’s Bountiful Blessings on SI

The mucho awaited 2011 SI swimsuit issue is here.

(Schmucks, by SI we mean Sports Illustrated not your favorite blog SearchIndia.com.)

And as you can see below, folks, the wait is, yummmm, most definitely worth it.

Irina Shayk

Irina Shayk is the first Russian model to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated popular annual swimsuit issue.

Pronounced eh-REE-nuh-sh-ake (as if anyone cares about such mundane things like pronunciation), the 25-year-old model hits the SI Swimsuit issue cover with nature’s bountiful blessings.

A native of Yemanzhelinsk village (near Chelyabinsk), the brown-haired, green-eyed beauty makes her fifth appearance in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue but the first on the cover.

If you’ve got visions of you-know-what, tough luck because Irina is dating Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese star of famed Spanish soccer club Real Madrid. 🙁

Shayk made her SI Swimsuit debut in 2007 and has appeared in every Swimsuit issue since. The stunning beauty’s previous photo shoot locations have included Tucson (2007); St. Petersburg, Russia (2008); Naples, Italy (2009); Chile’s Atacama Desert (2010); and Maui and the Philippines (both 2011).

If you are curious, Shayk’s bathing suit in the 2011 cover photo was designed by Sauvage by Elizabeth Southwood and her bracelet was made by Los Angeles-based Ettika. Bjorn Iooss shot this year’s cover.

Former SI Swimsuit cover models include Kathy Ireland, Christie Brinkley, Cheryl Tiegs, Heidi Klum, Elle MacPherson, Tyra Banks, Petra Nemcova, Marisa Miller and Brooklyn Decker.

Sports Illustrated boasts that its Swimsuit issue is a powerhouse media franchise that reaches over 60 million people annually and more men 18 to 34 than the Super Bowl.

    PSA for PS3 owners:
    My PS3 is 3D enabled, but my TV is not.. so I could only watch the 2D. 4 minutes of HD for free. Yummy!

    There’s an iPhone app as well. But since there are no ratings yet, we’ve held back on buying it.

      I watched the 3D version on my TV. 3D didn’t enhance yumminess quotient by much.

      SearchIndia.com Responds:

      Is 3D TV a big deal overall?

      We get mad when we see LCD TVs for $349…considering what we forked out four or five years back.

        It sure is.. if you have kids or people who love watching things pop out. We have watched about 3 3D movies now.

        The kids enjoyed even the lowly-rated Smurfs.

        Things do really pop out.. Amazing technology.

    ihave any of you ever thought about growing out of those training wheels and getting REAL girlie magz like “pour some curry on me” or “poon-jabi housewives” “!?!?!

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Alas, Lord Ram has not blessed us enough to have a darshan of those wonderful “pour some curry on me” or “poon-jabi housewives” magazines. 😉

    Such blessings, it seems, have fallen only on the Rama Dasas of Ohio. Sob. Sob.

    Given the fact that you are an anti-Indian and you like films that bashes India or the films that show India in a bad light (Slumdog Millionaire and many other examples), I want to give you the following link. I am sure you are going to love this. Here take the meat.

    1. You write: Given the fact that you are an anti-Indian

    Did you forget your medicines today?

    2. You write: Given the fact that you….you like films that bashes India or the films that show India in a bad light

    What rot. We only hate badly-made movies.

    BTW, in one of your earlier comments (@ 11:16AM on October 1, 2008), you took offense when we called your idol Kamal Hassan a dinosaur and insulted our parents in the filthiest manner possible.

    Now, if only you’d take your mouth wrapped tightly around Kamal Hassan’s dick off for just a short while, get up and read a bit you’d notice that your hero, your idol Kamal Haasan is a shameless thief. Spend a few minutes on reading the following post and you can then go back to deep-throating Kamal: Romance on the High Seas Review – Ulaga Madayan is a Shameless Thief

    2. You write: I want to give you the following link….Here take the meat.

    We watched your YouTube video (the link you posted above). The scale and ubiquitous nature of corruption in India is hardly a revelation to most people. Except, of course, for those busy ‘sucking up’ to their favorite movie star.

    But the solutions suggested in the video are effete and seem to have been written by someone with your level of intelligence.

    Real and quick change comes only at the point of a gun and with its effective use. Why did it take the U.S. just a few years to win their independence from the British once they got started while it took India over 100 years to get rid of the same British? Now, don’t you go running around trying to find an answer because it was merely a rhetorical question to drive home a point.

    Telling the looters to bring back the money they looted and deposited in foreign banks or telling people to change or asking them to vote or talking about massive awakening of the masses or use of technology is not going to change things much. Any change from such methods will be all too insignificant to clean up the Augean Stables that India has turned into.
