Sexy Russian model Irina Shayk is seemingly taking over the reins from Kate Upton as their chief spokesperson for Beach Bunny swimwear. That's kind of an interesting switcheroo, as a few years back it was Kate doing the Beach Bunny bit while Irina had the cover of the SI swimsuit edition. Now Kate's creating all kinds of buzz as SI's golden girl and Irina's got Kate's old job. Clearly some kind of modelling regime change is afoot here. I don't know how often models swap flags like this, but it's interesting to compare their work in these two roles. Irina seems like the obvious choice for this kind of thing. She's obviously got the body for it, as well as that sultry, jungle cat allure about her. She did something very similar to these Beach Bunny pics in her SI spread. On the other hand, Kate's work as a model is more of an in-your-face approach - here are my exploding tits, you can almost see everything but not quite, try not to notice that I'm a little chubby and have no ass or hips. I'll let everyone decide for themselves which of those two approaches works better. Though, it seems to me that Kate's exploding tits seem to be what folks are after more often that not. As with most things like this, I don't take sides. I'd have either one of them in a heartbeat.
Here are a few behind-the-scenes shots of Irina shooting this very spread. I dig that sexy Russian accent.
