If you read Piper Kerman’s memoir Orange Is The New Black or binge-watched the Netflix adaptation (and who hasn’t done that?), chances are you have wondered about the real-life woman behind Nora (in the book) and Alex Vause (the character in the show).

Usually, the only pigs a supermodel has to deal with are the kinds who lurk around the bottle service tables at nightclubs. On a recent trip to the Bahamas, Irina Shayk cavorted with a whole new category of pigs: the adorable kind.
