Watch Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover Model Irina Shayk in a Kanye West Video

If you were familiar with supermodel Irina Shayk prior to her appearance on the cover of the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, pat yourself on the back. You know as much about models as Kanye West. Which is a lot.
The rapper/style maven/modelizer featured Shayk in the tableau-video for his song “Power,” where she can be seen seated before and below him, scantily clad and winged, and sitting quite still (as befitting the appearance of a model in a Kanye video):
He also name-dropped Shayk in the G.O.O.D. Friday track “Christian Dior Denim Flow,” for which he recruited John Legend, Kid Cudi, Lloyd Banks, Pusha T, and Ryan Leslie to help him perform a track about all the models he wanted to get with:
“Coco Rocha, Kate Mimosa
Alessandra Ambrosio, Anja Rubik
Get Olga Kurylenko, tell her I’m very single
Abbey Lee too, I’m a freak boo
I’m wilding, I’m on a thousand
I wanna see Irina Shayk next to Doutzen”
