Portuguese football stud Cristiano Ronaldo has posed nude with his girlfriend for the cover of Spanish Vogue.
The image shows Cristiano, 29, standing naked, covered only by model girlfriend, Irina Shayk, 28. The couple have been dating since 2010.
The cover, titled “Amor y Futbol” (Love and Football), is reminiscent of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s recent and somewhat awkward Vogue cover.
However, the Cristiano version, photographed by renowned celebrity photographer Mario Testino, is in our opinion much more impactful, sensual and stylish.
The image is also unusual in that it’s something of a feminist statement. Unlike most fashion imagery, in this case the male figure is the naked one positioned behind the fully clothed female.
Either way, it’s yet another shot of Cristiano with his clothes off. And for that we are eternally grateful.
