Fans of the SI Swimsuit franchise are no stranger to seeing Irina Shayk in a bikini. Between 2007 and ’16, the model traveled everywhere from Italy and Chile to Madagascar and Spain for photo shoots with the brand.

The 2011 SI Swimsuit Issue cover star recently wowed her 21.3 million Instagram followers with a series of sizzling swimsuit snaps.

In the March 26 collage, Shayk wore a black bikini top with coordinated strappy bottoms with cut-out detailing. The Russian model showed off her tall and toned figure in one photograph as she posed against a wooden door. Other photos in the collection depicted palm trees at the beach and a heart-shaped rock.

Shayk provided a close-up view of her toned abdominals and included a zoomed in, slow-motion video up her body. Her dark locks were worn loose and the model accessorized with a single necklace.

“Thirst day on a Sunday….,” she quipped in her caption.

The beachside snaps racked up more than 712,000 likes in 24 hours and tons of comments.

“I mean 🔥🔥🔥🔥,” Harry Josh wrote.

“♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️,” Linda Evangelista added.

“The most beautiful woman on earth 😍,” Simona Mangiante Papadopoulos gushed.

“Maintenance works🔥🔥🔥,” Amber Valletta noted.

The 37-year-old mom and model has previously credited jiu-jitsu workouts and barre moves with maintaining her fit figure.
