Highsnobiety asked her if she kept her beauty regimen up during the height of pandemic. She said that even though she was running errands and taking Lea to school, she did not lose sight of her beauty routine. “You can’t leave your house with dirty nails and dirty hair—even though I really want to sometimes. But during lockdown, we had no red carpets. I was like, ‘I’ve got to make school runs fun.'”
Cooper is aware that she can look like her self attracts attention. Cooper and she have also had The Talk (about people wanting pictures of Mommy, Daddy, that’s) together.
“Sometimes my daughter is scared—she sees the paparazzi from miles away. She’s a KGB baby,” Shayk quipped, invoking the surveillance state in her native Russia. “We had to explain to her, like, ‘They’re just doing their job. By selling pictures, they make their living. You don’t have to be scared.'”
But she’s let it be known she isn’t going to aid in any efforts to make her daughter’s face famous. Despite her rare inclusion of a mysterious pal in a gorilla mask on Halloween, her Instagram primarily remains a fashion-only zone to show off what she’s working on (or wearing, or putting on her impossibly dewy skin, etc.).
