If there’s anybody who never ceases to disappoint on the red carpet, it has to be Sports Illustrated cover-hottie Irina Shayk! Unlike Brooklyn Decker & other hotties who let their egos keep them from properly playing the game, it’s more than obvious that Irina Shayk fully understands her role in the biz.

After checking the pics, we only hope that Irina’s not a crazy-hot beard for her soccer star boyfriend Cristiano Ronaldo (not that there’s anything wrong with being locked inside the closet). If that’s indeed the unfortunate case, then it’s very difficult to think of a bigger waste of a amazingly hot piece of ass.

Anyway, these were snapped last night at the NYC premiere of “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan,” which goes into limited release tomorrow. The film is based on a book by Chinese-American author Lisa See. Here’s more juice:

The movie begins in the 19th century in China, with two girls named Snow Flower (Jennifer Lim) and Lily (Christina Y. Jun) who bond together for eternity. They are isolated by their families and communicate by writing in a secret language. Then, in the present day of Shanghai, they struggle with the intimacy of their own childhood friendship. Then, they must understand the story such as ancestral connection, hidden from them in the folds of the antique white silk fan, or losing one. [Source]
