I already noticed these shots a couple of weeks ago, but as a good number of times happens one thing is to see some images on web, another is to have pages right between your fingers. No, in this case it’s not about a different impression those images may give “one by one”, it’s not about colors or similar, it’s about… well, first of all I have to say as I saw these I pretty liked them; by themselves, ‘cause Irina is one of my fav models and I’d like to see her way more often, for some different reasons in fact.
But what has been pretty surprising when few days ago I had the magazine in my hands is the fact after a good number of pages and images (here they are: and for the record you have to add some white pages and few shots without Irina as well)

I found myself at the end of the editorial, and… “already finished?”. Really, I can’t say I literally loved this, ‘cause in my humble opinion this editorial may have had way more potential than it actually expressed, but at the same time… yep, I just couldn’t get enough – and still can’t (btw a good opportunity to say: generally of Irina especially).
To be more specific points are practically two: part of the content I haven’t liked so much (generally the direction of the editorial: “what”) and redundancy (“how often”). If the first point is about a potential partially unexpressed, about the second, which usually is a bad thing, personally nothing to say. The reiteration of some images and of a similar content was everything but unwanted in fact, and the “already finished?” I wrote about right above explains the point pretty well.
So yep, if in good part the editorial is personally to revise – Irina is simply astonishing. I’m a fan of her body?, totally, so in this kind of shoot that’s a quite positive thing. But being a little more specific and thorough (hehe ‘cause something “I like her, I like her naked” wouldn’t seem so much…) I love her unique femininity and beauty so much. Her face is blooming of contrasting vibes, a compendium of what an intelligible and unclassifiable beauty is; it seems is has fierce, tough, rough and unique vibes written all over it, but at the same it can be such a delicate touch of cuteness or captivating “pop attractiveness” (aka: what the average male reader may find attractive) as well. Everything totally comes out in these shots, and the thing she had the chance to seduce without really doing it has been a very welcome plus I adored.
After all that’s what I really adored here, Irina at her zero-grade (personally from this point of view this is one of those cases where nudity has a strong sense, the way in fact in these shots sometimes it had; I mean, if it’s “nudity for nudity”, just to see a girl naked, I really can’t enjoy it, or at least I prefer pornography for sure… ‘cause there’s nothing tedious like ill-concealed pornography), or at least without forcing anything both talking about her and the shot as well.
So, no, I can’t think of these as the best material possible from such an amazing model in such an interesting context, but… really, “already finished?”; but luckily all I have to do is turn back the pages…
