Irina Shayk Mother’s Day Alo Beauty Campaign

It’s clear that supermodel Irina Shayk adores being a mom to her four-year-old daughter Lea. In fact, she credits the joys of motherhood as one of the reasons for her glowing skin. The other reasons?

One of the supermodel’s beauty secrets is to use natural, clean ingredients to give her skin a boost—and indulge in the occasional mask with the help of her daughter. We chatted with Shayk ahead of the holiday about all things motherhood, beauty, and the secret to her runway-ready glow.

Body Found in Search for Missing Dallas Beauty Queen on the Day She Was Set to Compete for Mrs. Texas Title

Irving Police Department

A body has been recovered in the search for missing Texas beauty queen Lashun Massey.

Lashun, 38, was reported missing Tuesday after she didn’t return home from her morning walk.

On Thursday, police said they’d pulled a body from the Lake Lago de Claire in Irving, Texas, — close to where Lashun had gone missing.

While they are awaiting official identification from the medical examiner’s office, the clothing matched what Lashun was wearing when she went missing, said Irving Police Department Public Information Officer Robert Reeves.

On Tuesday morning, authorities used sonar technology to attempt to locate a body in the water after police recalled a previous 911 call from that morning reporting a woman matching Lashun’s description walking out of the lake.

“We were unsuccessful in locating anything Sunday morning…” Reeves said during a press conference Thursday, adding that they then turned to the community for
