It seems almost impossible to believe, but we’re only on day 4 of Love magazine’s month-long advent of increasingly naked models. We’ve seen the Instagram It-girls do their thing, we watched the original Baywatch babe do a strange strip tease in her kitchen, but today Love went back to its Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition roots in a video starring Bradley Cooper’s oiled up girlfriend in a plunging one-piece.

After all, if your entire goal is to show off barely-there swimsuits, you might as well go with an industry veteran, and you can’t get much more pro than Irina Shayk. If you don’t know her by name, you surely know her by her bikini which has been featured in issues of SI Swim since 2007, landing her a cover in 2011.
In her video for Love, filmed by Drew Jarrett, Shayk puts her near decade-worth of swimwear modeling experience to good use, settling in for a hazy New York beach day in teeny tiny denim shorts and an olive-hued, backless one-piece. As The Beach Boys’ Merry Chrismas, Baby plays in the background, the L’Oréal Paris spokeswoman begins to slowly slather herself in suntan oil, because nothing says holiday cheer quite like sandy buns and a fresh tan.
Today’s apparently a big day for advent calendars as Irina is also L’Oreal Paris’ Wishes of Worth Day 4 star, wearing slicked back hair and a deep red winter-ready lip.
What do you think of Irina Shayk’s video for Love? Which model would you like to see on the calendar next?
