Those were the days in which Judit Mascó represented Spain in Sports Illustrated. Time to get up a cover in the special bathroom quoted annual men's magazine. It was 1990, Judit Mascó was only 21 years old and although its cover was pretty bland, he approached the image of beauty of the time, coincidentally, in the same year as another blonde top, Claudia Schiffer, began to have massive success thanks to Guess jeans. Today, however, the "brand Spain" in Sports Illustrated is in hand of whom photographed Irina Shayk in Seville with all possible topics and tasteless.
Sensuality mechanical workshop
The change is, at least, painful. From outside Spain's image returns to be associated with more stale and false clichés of a national folklore in the doldrums and into the hands of Irina Shayk becomes a mechanical workshop folklore Olé Radio listening while sounding Los Manolos .
The Russian model is photographed by Alex Cayley in Seville. Among the grounds of souvenirs and smell of fried food. Among decked bullfighters, capes, horse carriages and palm trees that seem to move it to a tropical landscape. Would not surprise me that this was the feeling that any reader of said number of swimsuits that had not visited Spain after turning pages.
Irina Shayk's relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo will be derived later in this union with Spain and of course, we do not either unemployed since Russia has much style as your partner.
This "Spanish image" that conveys Irina Shayk in Sports Illustrated is no banality. We speak of a magazine with a large circulation in the United States but that is consumed worldwide. The swimwear is your special number expected and in 2005 generated a whopping $ 35 million in ads . With the images are already Internet anywhere in the world and anyone can be generated image of Spain will supply the most authentic and false clichés of Seville TV above the tube against homicide caused by thin plasma televisions nearest the reality we live.
We speak of a men's magazine as such seeks to generate sexual desire of an audience that want to see beautiful female bodies, not any kind of artistic or aesthetic care. You get to look as tacky, the excitement of a woman between bullfighters, between horses or only covered with a transparent veil.
A brand Spain that has nothing to do with how the magazine is the other countries represented, including China, Australia or Chile where nature dominates with great scenery as a backdrop to the steamy photo shoots in swimwear. A brand that neither Spain nor admit I identify with it but still placing a foreigner in Mexico or in your tank Salou five liter beer.
Although Irina Shayk is not the only model that is portrayed in the Swimsuit Issue of Sports Illustrated. Ariel Meredith, an American model, also passing through the lens of Alex Cayley in the city of Seville. Only this time the outcome of the meeting is not as disturbing as the previous one, although I do some images appear to be best ignored.
And Julie Henderson, also from the United States, with a photo shoot closer to Irina Shay but with better results thanks to their size. We see from shawls, pony cars, typical taverns and bullfighters Andalusian capital but are other sensations. There is so much fried food for the environment. Despite having eye.
It's hard to ask for something like a magazine like Sports Illustrated, which repeats with Kate Upton on the cover for the second consecutive year, who himself comes to equal the record of three consecutive covers of Elle Macpherson to this step, although the differences between the two models are flagrant. Another detail to compare the decay of a year and the current model. From the sensuality of a model known as the body due to its perfection to Penthouse model woman who apparently must go crazy all men.
So on the next trip do not hesitate to practice before the movement with the cape, carrying the blanket in the trunk and sing well olé, olé! The same well conseguis next star Swimsuit Issue of Sports Illustrated.
