Bar Refaeli Nabs Maxim’s No. 1 Slot in Hot 100 List (photos)





Bar Refaeli was voted #1 on Maxim Magazine’s Hot 100 list for 2012.

The Israeli stunner was destined for modeling and hotness glory as her mother, Tzipi Levine, was a successful model in the 1970s.

Ms. Refaeli has been modeling as early as the age of 8 months in a baby commercial but began modeling regularly at the age of 15 when she was featured in campaigns for the fashion brands Castro and Pilpel, also starring in a commercial for Milky, a pudding manufacturer. 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.

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 has now ascended the pinnacle of hotness, coming in first on Maxim’s Hot 100 list of 2012.


Refaeli has been linked to former Baywatch lifeguard David Charvet,  now husband of Dancing With The Stars (DWTS) co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet but she is primarily known for her relationship with Hollywood leading man Leonardo DiCaprio.  DiCaprio and Refaeli began dating in 2005 and began an ‘off and on’ relationship that eventually ended in May, 2011.

Leo, we get that you’re a strikingly-handsome leading man who can easily score the most stunning women on the planet, but we defy you to replicate this phenomenally gorgeous creature.

Eat your heart out, Leo!
