She's one of the world's most beautiful women and also Leonardo DiCaprio's girlfried - the lucky thing!
LifeStyle YOU talks to Israeli model Bar Rafaeli, the face of Passionata lingerie, and discovers how she really feels about underwear.
Q&A WITH BAR RAFAELI
Why did you accept to reveal your curves for Passionata lingerie?
Passionata is a brand I can easily identify with.
The brand features a sexy and playful universe, marked by a sassy femininity and a zest for life
I’m in love with its multi-coloured collections, the shapes and fabrics of its bras which make you feel attractive and seductive without having to take yourself too seriously
Had you heard about the Passionata brand before?
I had heard about the great advertising campaign that David Lachapelle had devised for the brand. This fairy tale full of humour and the cheerful and catchy musical score made me want to know more about Passionata and its mischievous side.
How did the shooting session with Greg Kadel go? Any story you care to tell us about the shooting?
That was a real pleasure! Greg is one of those great photographers who are not the least affected and put you immediately at ease: He has a knack for it. When I arrived on the set, the atmosphere was very relaxed. I really enjoyed the idea of slipping into the role of a glamorous pin-up girl and identified right away with Brigitte Bardot. The scenes with the cat and the dog were memorable: the two of them were also showing off and being playful. We laughed a great deal!
What’s important for you when you buy lingerie?
I always go for lingerie that is both comfy and fashionable. What makes you feel unique and different is the quality of the fabrics, the trendy colours, the exquisite details. What I favour above all is the fit of bras that enhance ample breasts with glamour and imagination.
What does lingerie mean to you?
Lingerie is an accessory designed to accentuate your beauty and sex appeal. It is more often than not a reflection of the mood you are in. The sexy and body-hugging shapes are an invitation to the game of seduction. Bright colours conjure up voluptuousness…Wearing fine lingerie makes me want to live life to the fullest!
You are often mentioned as one of the most beautiful and sexiest women in the world. What’s your secret?
Living healthily, having a healthy diet and practicing a sport regularly: these are simple rules every one can follow in life. Since I was little, I got into the habit of doing this of my own free will and as a matter of course. This does not prevent me from breaking my diet and enjoying pleasurable moments.
By the way, you also need a healthy dose of humour on a daily basis!
How do you envisage your life once your modelling days are over? Do you plan on embarking on another career?
I have been into modelling at a very young age. During each shooting session or fashion show, I play the game of identifying with various characters. Today, I am going to be an actress for real and getting ready to star in my first movie back home.
