Exclusive: Irina Shayk on Her Blockbuster Debut and the One Role She Hopes to Play in the Future

Over the years, we’ve seen countless models make the transition from the runway to the big screen, resulting in nameless roles that usually require little more than some form of skimpy clothing.  But for her long awaited film debut, supermodel Irina Shayk isn’t only stepping out in front of the camera, she’s stealing the spotlight too!

In her first-ever Hollywood role, Irina joins Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in Brett Ratner’s summer blockbuster, Hercules, in which she plays the part of the stunning Megara, Hercules’s first wife and the film’s beloved heroine.  Though we’ve only been able to catch a few glimpses of the Russian beauty in the film’s official trailer thus far, Irina’s acting abilities have already won the praises of both Ratner and Johnson, who assure that the supermodel does ‘not disappoint.”  As if she ever could.

Ahead of her big film debut, we caught up with Irina to discuss her transition from modeling into acting, her experience working alongside The Rock, and the legendary role she hopes to one day land.  See our exclusive interview with Irina below and catch the supermodel in action when Hercules hits theaters this Friday!

Are Cara Delevingne and Selena Gomez the New Karlie and Taylor?

Looks like Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift may have some competition for the title of fashion’s favorite celebrity BFFs.

While the leggy blondes have been out strolling the New York City streets in their well-coordinated off-duty ensembles, another set of A-listers have been busy making their case for a new model-pop star pair.  That’s right— Cara Delevingne and Selena Gomez, otherwise known as everyone’s favorite fun-loving pal and Justin Beiber’s on-again-off-again flame, have been taking Saint Tropez by storm this week, turning heads left and right as they’ve enjoyed some time at sea in celebration of the singer’s 22nd birthday.

The pair was spotted enjoying some fun in the sun onboard a luxury yacht off the coast of France on Monday, where they gave a lesson in effortless summer style.  While Selena flaunted her curves in a white one-piece covered with a printed caftan and oversized square shades, Cara kept to her signature sporty aesthetic, opting for a pair of white Topshop shorteralls, a wide-brimmed hat and a cutout black bikini worn with red gym shorts.

Of course, the real festivities started after sundown, at which point the two BFFs hit the town to enjoy a night out at Villa Romana.  The two looked sleek and sexy in matching fitted black looks, which for Cara meant a see-through blouse paired with a tight leather mini-skirt and peep-toe booties.  The two were said to have enjoyed a meal at the restaurant before moving to the adjoining nightclub where they partied until the early morning hours.

There’s no word yet if the duo plans to continue their stylish jaunt throughout the Mediterranean, but with Cara’s 22nd birthday just around the corner (it’s August 12th), we can bet this is hardly the last we’ve seen of the pair’s partying antics.

See below for more photos from Cara and Selena’s stylish summer outing!
