Israeli model Bar Refaeli has gotten two big gigs within days. The first job is as the exclusive model for Marks & Spencer’s Valentine’s Day lingerie line. The second job, not yet confirmed by someone major at MTV, is to take over as hostess of “House of Style“, that great MTV show about models, fashion and everything in between. “House of Style”, back in it’s hey-day, was hosted by Cindy Crawford, and had guest appearances by people like Naomi Campbell and Heidi Klum.
Israeli model Bar Refaeli has been unveiled as the ‘body’ for a range of Valentine’s Day undies in M&S new lingerie campaign.
Twenty-three-year-old Bar is reported to have a signed a deal worth six figures to promote the High Street chain’s underwear, which retails for between £11 and £22.
The blue-eyed beauty, who began modelling when she was only eight months old, will also appear in ads for the firm’s swimwear in the summer.
Famously tight-lipped about her private life, Bar has recently been travelling the world with her actor boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio on the promotional trail for his new flick Revolutionary Road.

The lingerie line is a little “meh” in my opinion, but I’m sure guys will love it. Back to “House of Style”. I wonder what “House of Style” would even be like after all of these years. The great thing about the old show was that every model was a famous “supermodel”, and everyone knew their names. Usually by the first name alone. Christy. Iman. Cindy. Naomi. Heidi. Who are the major models now, besides Leonardo DiCaprio’s ex-lovers and current lovers?
Leonardo DiCaprio’s model girlfriend Bar Refaeli has been tipped to front a revival of the U.S. TV series HOUSE OF STYLE. The popular show, which ran from 1989 to 2000, focused on fashion and design and was originally hosted by supermodel Cindy Crawford.
Now MTV is planning to bring the show back to the small screen – and producers hope to land the Titanic star’s lover or catwalk stunner Chanel Iman to take over presenting duties, according to New York gossip column PageSix.
Neither of the beauties has officially signed on to the project.
The “House of Style” rumor could be just that, but I still think it’s a good idea to bring back the show. I’d even love to watch it if they brought back Cindy Crawford as hostess!
