In her debut cover shoot for Vogue Arabia, Russian supermodel Irina Shayk wanted to share her burgeoning linguistic skills with her fans in the Middle East – to which there are many. So Shayk wanted to tell her loyal followers a few lesser knowns facts about her. But in Arabic. Watch the tongue-in-chic video to see Irina Shayk speaking Arabic and see the international star take to the Vogue camera attempting one of the most beautiful languages in the world. Well, almost. Ten points for trying though, Irina.
In her dual covers for Vogue Arabia, Irina Shayk wears Dolce & Gabbana, Victoria Beckham, and Céline on the February issue of Vogue Arabia, photographed by Miguel Reveriego and styled by Anya Ziourova. The new issue is out on February 1st across the region but you can subscribe here to get the magazine first and fast.
