He is an accomplished football player who has a number of trophies under his belt, but ahead of the World Cup Cristiano Ronaldo is showing off some of his other assets.
Football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is featured on the cover of the new issue of Vogue España magazine along with model girlfriend Irina Shayk.
The Madrid striker, who will suit up for Portugal in June, has stripped down to his birthday suit for the latest issue of Spanish Vogue.
On the racy cover, shot by renowned photographer Mario Testino, the 29-year-old star, poses with his model girlfriend Irina Shayk.
The Russian beauty looks stunning in a strapless white dress which features a thigh-high split but all eyes are on Ronaldo who stands naked behind her. It is only the fabric on her dress as well as the smart text placement that protects his modesty.
The cover was photographed by famous photographer Mario Testino, and the headline for the piece is “Amor y Fútbol”, which in English is Love and Football.
Another image shows Ronaldo lying topless on a rug while Shayk straddles him. He turned up the heat by pulling down her trousers to reveal her pert bottom.
Shayk, who is a Victoria’s Secret model, described the shoot as ‘effortless’.
“Shooting with them was effortless and magical and like a family reunion sharing something as special as this together.” Irina Shayk told
The Vogue shoot was styled by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, who decided to do us all a favour by getting Ronaldo to strip down to his birthday suit. Thanks Carlyne!
Ronaldo is not the first male star to go nude for Vogue.
In 2000, Robbie Williams appeared sans clothes for the British version of the fashion Bible. His provocative image was also shot by Testino.
It’s the first time the Real Madrid star has posed with his model girlfriend, who he’s been dating since early 2010, despite her incredibly successful modelling career.
The shoot goes out in the June issue of Vogue España and it was shot in the footballer’s home in Madrid.
The issue goes on sale in June.
