Ah, so classy. Irina Sharipova is without a doubt one of the classiest exotic-looking women we’ve ever featured. The way she projects looks like a million dollars. And we’re pretty sure she smells like that, too. Just look at her…
It looks like even her sweet smells like a high-end perfume. She’s so clean and fresh (and delicate-looking) that you’d want to be beside her all day. Smelling and probably touching away.
