Sport Illustrated swimsuit model Irina Shayk, hit the catwalk on her very first visit to Istanbul where she highlighted 2011 edition of the Istanbul fashion week, one of Turkey's most important fashion events of the year.

Shayk's modelling career has been meteoric since her discovery in 2004 when she won a beauty contest organised by fashion scout Guia Jikidze. Shayk is now an ambassador for the Intimissimi brand and the face of Lacoste and LaPerla. She has modelled for Armani Exchange and Guess and has graced the covers of GQ Spain and Elle Spain.

The event was held in Santralistanbul, an art complex created from an Ottoman-Era electric power plant. Shayk's presence here was part of a shock and awe campaign by Damat, a Turkish brand that focuses on men's casual and business wear.
