Irina was one of the models selected to walk the runway at Kanye's Yeezy Paris Fashion Week show in 2012. "When I got a request to participate in the show, I was very thrilled and agreed immediately," Irina previously told POPSUGAR. "I consider Kanye West to be one of those rare people that bring new ideas into the world. He brought art into music, and now he is releasing his passion for fashion and I think that it's absolutely amazing! It does not happen to many of musicians. He has a good eye for fashion and he is not scared to try new things."
At this point, Irina was still dating Cristiano, while Kanye had begun dating Kim Kardashian.
