On November 17, Russian supermodel Irina Shayk received Marie Claire’s Prix de la Moda Awards‘ Model of the Year award. The event was held at the French embassy in Madrid, Spain, home of Real Madrid, the football team Irina’s gorgeous boyfriend, Cristiano Ronaldo, plays for.
Irina Shayk, whose real name is Irina Shaykhlislamova, has been appearing in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue since 2007. She’s the cover model of the 2011 issue. She also modeled for Armani Exchange in the spring and summer of 2010. It was through the Armani Exchange campaign that she met Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the highest-paid football players in the world.
At the Prix de la Moda awards, she was wearing an Elie Saab sequined gown and Christian Louboutin No. 299 150 pumps:

We found her Christian Louboutins online. They cost a whopping $1195.00:
We fell instantly in love with Irina’s burgundy-suede-and-bronze-python Mary Jane pumps. The Russian model is a stunner, but the Louboutins she wore to receive her Model of the Year award outshines her in our eyes. They’re absolutely breathtaking!
But since the price is quite breathtaking, too, we found ourselves scouring the internet for not-too-expensive alternatives. Fortunately, it turns out that Jessica Simpson and Amazon also have their own stunners.
