Irina Shayk Is This Year’s ‘SI’ Swimsuit Issue Cover Girl

The Huffington Post caught wind (and spied a big-ass billboard) of Sports Illustrated’s 2011 swimsuit issue cover girl  Irina Shayk.  This big announcement was supposed to be kept on the DL until midnight tonight when it would be announced on The Late Show With David Letterman, but someone spied the brief of unveiling of the photo while it was being taped for the show and tweeted the news.  Shayk and a few other models posed in front of the Ed Sullivan theater for oogling fans.
