The top model, boyfriend Bradley Cooper, and his mom Gloria Campano may have shut down the Oscars red carpet (Shayk donned a custom Burberry look), but by the looks of Irina's Insta, the real runway was at her hotel suite. Before leaving for the ceremony, she showed off her short sleek bob and the open back of her black dramatic gown. Also, we think we spy Cooper in the left corner of the video.
