Looks like Armani has scored yet another footballer love match.
First, Emporio Armani cast soccer hottie David Beckham and his wife Victoria in a series of steamy underwear ads.
Now, the fashion house has another new WAG on its hands -- Russian supermodel Irina Shayk, the rumored girlfriend of Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo, who replaced Beckham in the underwear campaign.
Shayk -- who, according to the New York Post, recently spent a romantic vacation in Corsica with the captain of Portugal's World Cup team -- stars in the A|X Armani Exchange Summer 2010 swimwear campaign, in which she wears a sexy black crocheted one-piece ($98) while straddling some sand.
Hot damn. That almost makes Ronaldo's ab-tastic Armani jeans ad look demure. Almost.
So, did Ronaldo hook his gal pal up with the gig, or did they meet at an Armani singles mixer? Who knows -- but if this genetically (and Giorgio-) blessed pairing doesn't work out, there's always Megan Fox!
