Bar Refaeli Covers 'Esquire' July 2009

Bar Refaeli wears merely a white bikini bottom and some body paint on the July 2009 cover of Esquire. Here’s what the 23-year-old supermodel opened up to the mag about:

On her ambitions: “Heidi Klum. I really like what she’s doing. It’s what I picture myself as.”

On having part of a Stephen King story written on her body for the cover: “I haven’t seen anything like that ever. So I wanted to be the girl who did it.”

On her childhood on the Israeli coast: “I walked along dirt roads and picked oranges and played with dogs and rabbits and chickens and horses.”

    This is much better to look at than the crap current issue of RollingStone Australian version!

    And Bar’s face is not photoshopped to death to the point that she’s close looking like a clown like Miranda lol

    Bar’s body isn’t like those of typical runway models, but imo her body is banging and healthy!

    I also love the fact that it isn’t photoshopped extremely as compared to the other post about a naked model here on JJ.

    olga@israel Says:

    Walked along dirt roads, yeah sure. Her parents have a mansion, she never walked a dirty road, cause she had everything even before she was born.
    All her succes is because of her mother’s brilliant management work and Bar is beautiful, can’t argue. But she must stop to feed us with stupid stories..

    Miranda Kerr’s cover was for a good cause on behalf of the Koala Foundation to bring attention to the on going destruction of the Koalas habitat…..Bar’s is just about being n*de for the sake of being n*de…..not very classy!

    Unmoved Says:

    Bar & Leo are no longer together, just in case anyone’s interested. This was reported on Israeli websites. She’s already tentatively going out with someone new, its seems. A local boy. Surprised none of this has been reported in the US.

    Yeah... right! Says:

    Agree about her body… its nice to see a not-so-starving model.

    However, Heidi Klum? Seriously? I respect a person who knows what they can become and she’s not one of them. She’s good for a magazine cover, but she’s certainly not the next Heidi Klum!

    #30 OMG….. you are so jealous……
    She’s amazing looking! anyone who say she’s fat is insane, . You don’t have to like her personality, but if this is some people’s idea of fat than no wonder why we have eating disorders, . Saying that someone with a supermodel body is fat or soft is frankly quite dangerous!

    some people say that she has curves but it’s false , she has just breast implants

    @39 Says:

    Supermodel body? Is that a joke? A supermodel walks the runway and WEARS clothes which is not the case with her. Seriously is there anything more to this woman other than being naked all the time? Even with a famous boyfriend she needs to get rid of her clothes to make it to mag covers.

    Not sure what Giselle has over her. They both have stunning figures; their faces are not model material, in my opinion. But Bar is at least cute. Giselle is not.

    What does Gisele have over her? Just about everything starting with the fact that Gisele is actually a supermodel ( working with designers, walking runways, wearing clothes ). Bar? The Naked Girlfriend. That pretty much sums up her career.

    So….where pics of her and LEO????. Probably another 2-3 days and we’ll see lovely couple together!!!!

  52. 52
    @51 Says:

    yeah, right. Even if there are going to be pictures of them together again they are going to look as miserable and distant as ever.
    So being a supermodel means naked, boring and uninspiring these days? In that case Barf is a supermodel.

    They have never been a couple and they are not cute when they are together.

    Don’t forget to point your toes, stick out your collarbones, and lengthen your fingers people!!! Work it!

    i hate it when ppl call any model a supermodel
    just because she’s known and is a model doesnt mean she’s a supermodel
    only supermodels in my book r kate moss and gisele, they actually have contracts with actual fashion houses
    she looks alright, i agree she’s been looking better tho

    #55 You are right – “”Now her dream has come true.”"
    But…Who will listening our opinion???? She still continion make a naked covering and she and press don’t care what thing about this ppl, even Leo!!!.
    WHO CARE WHAT WE ARE THINKING???. And this is very sad!!!!

    karin@ Says:

    Would have seen you Leo and her together since for a long time, me not. They do not seem be any more photographed together but each from their part. Noticed you the wink of LĂ©o one evening in the match with its enormous cross in jewel???? I think that he clearly showed us that he remained catholic I do not think of it harmless!!!! In fact I worry that a man as him, the most dreamed about the planet where billions of women dream to be his wife, where he interresse in this girl’s “kind stripped (revealed) on billions of sites ” ;o(

    we don’t care about Barf but she is still in Israel

  74. 74
    @72 Says:

    She was in Israel yesterday smiling and posing with Israeli soldiers at a charity even meanwhile here in the U.S. we can read about her being a draft dodger. Ironic!
    Unfortunately I think she is going to show up in L.A. very soon.

    Heart of Glass Says:

    sorry, but I don’t feel like they’re dating anymore..

    I feel like Leo’s single and on the prowl right now… I truly believe that… And if you look at recent photos of him, he is oozing with sexuality, like a true scorpio…. he looks like a guy who is on the prowl. I see it very clearly in his photos and the magnetic energy of the scorpio is all around him right now.. something is going to happen for him—and i have no doubt in my mind about that !!!

  77. 77
    Heart of Glass Says:

    if you read about Scorpios right now, you will see what I’m talking about. Also, Leo has four major planets in Scorpio (his sun, moon, venus and mars) are all in scorpio…That is 4 major planets which is a BIG deal in astrology. If you read about whats going on for scorps right now, you will see what I’m talking about. There’s a major shift going on in their LOVE life … And even more for LEO b/c he has 4 planets including his Mars and Venus which are the love planets…

    french Says:

    @Heart of Glass:

    Leo and Barfie have never been a couple

  79. 79
    @72 Says:

    It isnt ironic that she showed up with soldiers just as she was getting negative publicity for being a draft dodger. THAT WAS WELL PLANNED!! She is so fake. If she doesnt believe in the draft then be a woman( haha not barfie) and stand up for your beliefs. But dont act like she’s supporting the soldiers when she is against the draft. Hypocrite. Two face. This B*tch knows how to play the game but this too will bite her in the a** one day.

  80. 80
    @79 Says:

    I just heard that showing up at that charity event with the soldiiers was part of an agreement so Fox ( the clothing line she models for ) won’t get boycotted in Israel. Wow, what an inspiration she is! Great pick, Leo!

  81. 81
    Her movie 'Session' Says:

    The release date for her ‘Session’ is now dated on with “USA 4 February 2010 (limited) “.
    Now that sounds great! I thought they were about releasing it in September this year, but it seems their seeking for investors by eBay didn’t work out and now they plan to try it in February next year. Ugh, no, I think it won’t work either. So the best they could do is to organize a “special screening” for old fat rich horny guys on a private yacht…or better in the bin with it.

  82. 82
    ... Says:

    Barf is on the cover of the June issue of Italian GQ. Her legs wide open on the cover and you can see her fake boobs in a see through shirt inside. Typical! Class act girlfriend for Leo…

    @82 Says:

    they r not dating anymore…

  84. 84
    @83 Says:

    They broke up so many times and they got back together all the time. I wanna see at least one of them dating someone else and then I`ll believe that they are over.

  88. 88
    @87 Says:

    Don`t forget that lisa rose doesn`t think Leo is good enough for Barf… I can`t believe someone seriously thinks that way but if you are right and what lisa rose wrote is true she must be happy.

    OMG Says:

    OMG! I’m speechless! How far down will she go yet?!?!?
    Does she really think a pose like that has something to do with modeling and would help her public image in a positive way?!? It’s looking like p-o-r-n and pretty much strange to everything what REAL models would do, because such poses are very provoking and vulgar and don’t belong to a decent esthetically modeling job!!! This is for erotic-magazines only. Well, I’m totally disappointed. Pretty girl, but brainless and w/o moral, it seems ;(

    #89 I saw that pic before, it’s old.

    I think all Models are doing the same thing these days, b/c I just saw another naked model on a magazine cover yesterday. Her name is Natalia Vodianova. And then there was Miranda Kerr a few days ago. So I agree that it’s getting weirder and weirder, modeling is turning into p-o-r-n…

    but at least Miranda is doing it to save the koalas LOL :P

    Natalia Vodianova is a real model and she is not always naked
