|Bar Refaeli in a 2004 Eyal Nevo image exclusive to the album-book "Israel Fashion Art" by Nurit Bat-Yaar.|
Hi, "Israel Fashion Art 1948-2008" album-book's Facebook Fan Club reached 2,000 fans!!! Thank you so much dear book fans!!! On this happy occasion I would like to share with you this very special image of a very special model: international fashion photography model BAR REFAELI, former love of film star Leonardo Dicaprio and one of the most perfect specimens of world beauty.
This is one of several full-page photos of Bar featured in the album-book. This specific one opens the chapter "Talking Clothes" which is about T shirts and other fashion pieces featuring written-up slogans and messages and photos that are printed on them. Believing that slogans such as :"A woman without a man is like a fish without bicycles" (by Feminist Gloria Stenheim), "Make Love Not War", "Black is Beautiful" etc., provide sort of a quick course about free world culture - I decided to devote a special chapter to this concept.
As I did in other chapters here too I traced the sources of the custom to attach words to clothes to the Bible's High Priest, widening the discussion to its appearance in art works such as Braque and Picasso's collages and to present day's Jenifer Bar-Lev's fabric works, etc.

By the way, do you have any idea what does the white swan pillow is doing in the picture? It has nothing to do with the film "White Swan, Black Swan". Nor with the Sawn Lake ballet. It's there as a reminder that Bar's nick-name is Bar-Boor, the Hebrew word for swan!
