Bar Refaeli was born on June 4, 1985, in a rural region of Israel. She was raised on a horse ranch, but her countryside origins never inhibited her imagination. She started modeling before she could even walk and talk. At eight months old, Bar was already doing commercials. After starting her career before she was even a 1-year-old, Bar had to undergo that traumatic experience that every child fears: getting braces. Of course, getting braces quickly derailed her modeling career. So for over three years, Bar resorted back to her normal life — a life void of modeling. But when the braces came off in 1997, Bar wasted no time getting right back into the industry. At the tender age of 11, she bursted back onto the modeling scene and has been there ever since.
She then appeared in numerous advertisements and infomercials in Israel. Bar’s rise to prominence seemed to happen overnight. At the age of 15, Bar began to modeling for catalogs such as Castro and Pilpel. Her undeniable good looks made her an automatic interest for most international magazines and covers. The turn of the century marked a sign of good things to come for the Israeli vixen. In 2000, she won the title of “Model of the Year” in a beauty contest, and in 2001, she won her title yet again, as her beauty and modeling talents couldn’t be denied. In 2002 and 2003, she was chosen to be the home model of the Renuar fashion network. Additionally, Bar was selected for an international fashion production and appeared in the French ELLE magazine.
It was during her rise to prominence that she attained gigs with GQ and Ralph Lauren. However, Bar claimed that it was the editorial section in an issue of ELLE France that laid claim to her celebrity. The editorial section attached her name with the face that so many people were becoming accustomed to seeing, and once her name was attached, a celebrity was born. Bar ended up doing photo shoots with Sports Illustrated magazine and Victoria’s Secret. She was the first ever Israeli to be featured in SI. Her career has essentially grown right in front of our eyes; she has developed a sense of how to work in front of a camera, and photographers are beginning to like working with her more and more. She says that working with photographers is “a cooperation between the model and the photographers.” Bar has lives the ife of a glamorous, international supermodel. She graced cover after cover and has worked with the most major brands in the world. In early 2007, Bar landed more work with SI, and signed a deal with Chanel’s makeup brands. Her romantic link with award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio speaks mounds for her popularity.
Bar appeared in a September 2007 Paris-Match issue where she was interviewed by reporter Caroline Mangez. The six-page article had many pictures and a great interesting interview about Bar’s life in Israel, her family and her work. She also appeared on the cover of Tatler magazine for the October 2007 issue.
