Following a two-month fling with Kanye West, Irina Shayk has returned to the public eye this week. Overnight the model was spotted attending the NYFW Bvlgari party. There’s nothing like a post-break up transformation and it seems Shayk took the cue for a choppy bob and front fringe.

Accompanying the cropped look on Wednesday night, the 35-year-old paired a metallic PVC LaQuan Smith corset with low-rise camo cargo pants by The Attico (making another case for the lowering waistline) and Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

The new ‘do was fleeting and appears to be the masterful work of a wig. She later appeared on the runway for Jeremy Scott’s Moschino collection before being snapped leaving with her usual long brunette locks. Well played, Shayk. Well played.

The Russian-born model is a purveyor of tricky trends and earlier last month took to social media wearing thigh-high boots and a lime green bikini, poolside in Ibiza.

As for her short-lived relationship with West, reports flooded the tabloids in late August confirming they had split after a quick two months. But there should be no surprise as it was always assured it was never that serious.

“The two of them have always just been having fun together,” a source for Entertainment Tonight said at the time. “They’re both doing their own thing and down to have a good time without any strings attached.”

We were secretly hoping the pair would make their red carpet debut at some point – perhaps at the Met Gala this week?  While those hopes were inevitably dashed, it’s the Fall season in New York City which means the model will soon embark on her second unofficial (but always fabulous) coat tour.
