Supermodel citizen: Irina Shayk leads Russian delegation during Opening Ceremony

Fourth-Place Medal

Russia's finest was on display during the Opening Ceremony for the Sochi Olympics, including one of its most famous faces and figures.

Supermodel Irina Shayk escorted the Russian delegation into Fisht Stadium, working the ramp like a runway, in her elaborate costume and headpiece. She tweeted about the experience afterwards:

The 28-year-old is usually clad in far less; she was the cover model for the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and has done campaigns for Agua Bendita swimwear.

She's also the longtime girlfriend of soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

The brunette beauty has no problem showing off her Russian pride, or body. She posted this provocative pic on her Instagram account:

No wonder the leopard mascot has a big grin on its face.
