Leonardo DiCaprio’s hot girlfriend of over 2 years, Israeli model Bar Refaeli, 23, is set to be the face and body for board sport brand Hurley International.
Bar will show off her curves in the October issues of Elle, Nylon and other fashion mags sporting bikinis, sheer T’s and denim shorts from next spring’s lineup. The images are meant to “illustrate a theme of a young woman’s journey and discovery.”
She will appear for the brand’s spring 2009 runway show as part of Los Angeles Fashion Week in October and might even lend a hand in designing some of Hurley’s collections.
Lyndsey Roach, Hurley’s vice president of marketing for the young contemporary division said:
“Anyone can hire a model. We wanted to do something different. She lives this lifestyle.”
Of the brand Refaeli said:
“I love that Hurley’s beach culture lifestyle incorporates fashion and makes it look and feel sexy and effortless.”
