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!
