You’d think supermodels would feel sexy all the time. With all the makeup, pampering, designer couture and flattering lighting, how could you not feel uber glamorous 24/7?
But Israeli model, Bar Rafaeli, says she actually feels at her sexiest when she’s dressed in simple clothes. The stunner - who is dating Leonardo DiCaprio - admits she doesn't really like to get too dressed up and prefers something more casual as that's what she feels comfortable in.
She said: "It's mainly about how you feel. I wouldn't feel sexy if I was walking around in high heels, a tight top, huge earrings and an elaborate hairdo all day. But there are women who seem confident and sexy like that. It's a lot about how you move in your outfit and if you feel comfortable in it. "I like comfortable clothes - long dresses, jeans, shorts. I like it simple and prefer not having to accessorise a lot."
Bar is a huge fashion fan and has a specially-built closet to house all her clothes. She told Germany's OK! magazine: "I keep all my clothes in a walk-in closet. It used to drive me crazy that I got the coolest designer clothes or went shopping abroad and always had to cram everything in my suitcase. So I had the room built especially for my clothes."
Although she has many outfits, the 24-year-old beauty has a few essential items which always see her through.
She said: "Essentials for me are a pair of jeans, a perfectly fitting T-Shirt and a black leather jacket.
Reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian is another one who prefers to play it down than glam it up. She says she feels sexiest being a mother.
The 31-year-old star – who gave birth to her son Mason last December, her child with boyfriend Scott Disick - believes parenthood has ignited an innate sensuality within her. “Motherhood brings out a whole new glow or something,” she says.
So when do you feel your sexiest? Perhaps it’s when you first wake up, or before you go to bed. Maybe it’s when you’re out with your girlfriends in six-inch heels, or maybe you like to hit the beach and exercise. Maybe it’s just when you’re happy. When you are beaming from ear to ear and laughing with your loved ones.
