Bar Refaeli is an Israeli Fashion model born in Israel, on 4 Jun, 1985.

Refaeli was born in 1985 in the countryside of Israel where her parents, Tsipi and Rafi, owned a horse ranch. It was her mother who first saw potential in her daughter. Bar Refaeli began a modeling career at the age of eight months, appearing in commercials. She had to wear braces in her early years, postponing her modeling. At the age of fifteen, Refaeli returned to modeling.

Refaeli began her modeling career before the age of one. By the age of fifteen she was featured in campaigns for the fashion brands Castro and Pilpel, also starring in a commercial for Milki.
