Put your biases aside for the amount of time it takes to read this, Kickettes. Easier said than done, we know.
Hands down, this is the best Irina Shayk has ever looked on a carpet of any color. Are we right or are we right? Irina was honored at the Marie Claire Prix a la Moda awards at the French Embassy in Madrid last night. The award was not for “Best Achievement in an Elie Saab Gown” but it could have been.
Cristiano’s lady wore a stunning sparkler from Elie Saab’s Fall 2011 collection to collect her award. We are slightly dismayed by the clunky Christian Louboutin No. 299 heels and think a more delicate heel would have been more appropriate, but they certainly don’t ruin the look. She betrayed her love of green jewels and went for diamond earrings and a blue jeweled cocktail ring. Irina is not the first WAG to show some love to Mr. Saab. Sylvie van der Vaart is a devotee to his designs as well.
Remember when Shayk was wearing things like this to red carpet events? We certainly hope that is a thing of the past! What do you think of this look?
