Calendar Girl January: Bar Refaeli



We rather gave up on Calendar girls last year due to the rather manky selection in our calendar. This year, however, thanks to C, we have 12 months of top class Sports Illustrated lovelies to look forward to!


Bar Refaeli may sound like a drinking establishment on the Costa Smeralda but she is in fact Israel's top model and the girlfriend of chubby "heart throb" Leonardo di Caprio.



Lovely Bar (even in Israel it's considered a bit of an odd name) has been modelling since she was one year old and is still only 23. A couple of years ago she got into trouble for avoiding her Israeli national service by marrying a family friend and then immediately divorcing him. "Why is it good to die for our country? What, isn't it better to live in New York?" she said sensibly, but this didn't go down at all well in Israel. Shame as she would have looked splendid in uniform.




This year Bar appears in her first film a thriller called "Session" with a cast of actors you have never heard of. No doubt she is hoping for an acting career. The odds aren't good: has she ever seen Cindy Crawford in Fair Game (1994)?
