Bar RefaeliBar Refaeli Top Model. Images, Bio, photos and video. Bar Refaeli born 4 June 1985 is an Israeli model and occasional actress.

She was the cover model of the 2009 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and was voted #1 on Maxim magazine’s Hot 100 list of 2012.

Refaeli began her modeling career before the age of 8 months for a baby commercial.  By age 15, she was featured in campaigns for the fashion brands Castro and Pilpel, also starring in a commercial for Milky. Refaeli won the title “Model of The Year” in an Israeli beauty contest in 2000.
Refaeli has appeared in ELLE (France), Maxim, and GQ (Italy). She debuted in the 2007 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, becoming the first Israeli model to appear in the magazine, posing with rock band Aerosmith.

In 2009, Refaeli was the covermodel for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.  A photo from the shoot, featuring a bikini-clad Refaeli, was painted on the side of a Boeing 737 in a promotional deal with Southwest Airlines,  leading to criticism of Southwest from passengers for using an image they regarded as inappropriately sexual and “offensive to families”.

 

In October of the same year, Bar Refaeli was again embroiled in controversy, when Haredi groups criticised a Tel Aviv billboard campaign in which she appeared semi-nude, alleging that it could “poison” the public.  The billboards were subsequently removed.
She has modeled for Subaru, Accessorize, Brazilian clothing line Besni, Italian jewelry line Marco Bicego, and Rampage. In 2009, she modeled for Garnier International.
On 5 March 2009, Refaeli received the “World Style Award,” presented by the Women’s World Awards, for her “natural elegance, sense of style and compassion.”  In October of the same year, Refaeli co-hosted Fashionable Istanbul’s press conference announcing their October 2009 fashion event, also appearing in its advertising. Refaeli was voted #42 in 2008, #57 in 2010, and #97 in 2011 in the FHM “100 Sexiest Women” list  and came in first on Maxim’s Hot 100 list of 2012.
On 4 January 2013, GoDaddy announced that it signed Refaeli to star with Danica Patrick in one of its two 30-second Super Bowl commercials.
Film and television career
Refaeli co-starred in the Israeli TV series Pick Up in 2005. In October 2008, she co-hosted the Bravo special program Tommy Hilfiger Presents Ironic Iconic America,  based on the book Ironic Iconic America written by George Lois. She returned as a program host in 2009, this time for MTV’s brief revival of House of Style.
On 18 January 2011, Refaeli attended the premiere of the English-language movie Session in Israel  in which she starred. Directed by Israeli Haim Bouzaglo, the film is a psychological thriller that tells the story of a manipulative psychiatrist who becomes obsessed with a new young patient.
She served as a guest judge on cycle four of Germany’s Next Topmodel hosted by Heidi Klum.
In November 2012 she started her own model casting show Million Dollar Shootingstar on German TV Channel Sat.1.
