It’s that time of year again…the time of year when your brutal winter is somewhat warmed up by the arrival in your mailbox of the SI swimsuit cover.
It should turn up next week, and when it does Bar Refaeli will grace the cover. Refaeli, the girlfriend of Leo DiCaprio, is an Israeli native. For those keeping track home at home, this is DiCaprio’s second Sports Illustrated sueprmodel girlfriend. The first was Gisele Bundchen.
“Oh my god,” said Refaeli, welling up with tears after seeing herself on the cover, according to this story by Arash Markazi… “Wow, wow…wow.”
“Isn’t it gorgeous?” asked swimsuit editor Diane Smith. “Aren’t you gorgeous?”
I think I speak for just about everyone when I say, “Yes, you are.”
