The thought of extraterrestrial beings showing up on Earth is a scary proposition. But, if they look anything like supermodel Irina Shayk, I think we’re all going to be alright.

Shayk headlined Phillipp Plein’s New York Fashion Week show over the weekend by stepping out of a giant UFO — rocking a skin-tight, black leather body suit complete with crystal encrusted trim. The Russian (no “collusion” here) beauty was then escorted down the runway by a giant robot.

A play off of the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, the show featured sporty, cold weather clothing. But, to no surprise, the 32-year-old girlfriend of actor Bradley Cooper can easily take on any season. She’s basically the model equivalent of a USPS mail carrier – she dominates in all conditions.

This New York Fashion Show scene was Independence Day meets Transformers. It seemed like a nice change-up from the typical catwalk, but not everyone agrees. I don’t consider myself a fashion show connoisseur, but I think Shayk pulled it all off spectacularly.
