Leo's girl Bar takes a casual approach to world's most stylish city

3 JULY 2007

Off the catwalk, Israeli model Bar Rafaeli clearly likes to keep things casual - even if she's strolling down Paris' swankiest street. The gorgeous brunette, who has been dating Hollywood hunk Leonardo DiCaprio for a year, dressed down in a Beatles T-shirt, faded jeans, and flip flops as she took in the sights on the famous Avenue Montaigne. Located in the French capital's renowned "Golden Triangle" it is home to the luxurious Plaza Athenee hotel where Kate Hudson is currently staying.

Bar, 22, is no doubt in town for the haute couture shows, and could well have been popping into one of several top couture houses that line the avenue for a fitting.

Modelling has been Bar's career since she was eight-months-old, when she appeared in her first commercials. By 15 she was featured in campaigns for Israeli fashion brand Castro and swimwear label Pilpel. Nowadays she can be found on billboards for labels such as Marks and Spencer, Ralph Lauren and Victoria's Secret, as well as gracing the covers of glossy international magazines.

The photogenic model's profile has sky-rocketed since she struck up a romance with her Oscar-nominated beau. The pair caused a stir when he turned up in her Tel Aviv home town to visit her family in March, and they have regularly had to shoot down rumours of pregnancy and marriage. Bar, who previously dated French actor and singer David Charvet, is keen to put those reports to rest and recently told the Italian edition of Vanity Fair: "The truth is I don't believe in marriage. A couple doesn't need a contract."
