Whether working hard or playing harder, some of our favorite social-media-savvy stars made sure to share their candid snaps for us to enjoy. Nicole Richie showed off her impressive basketball skills, and Lady Gaga got us psyched for the VMAs with a stop by the MTV offices. Adam Levine was the victim of a snack attack, while Alessandra Ambrosio was extra thirsty during her vacation in Greece. Vogue editor Anna Wintour dove into the September issue as John Stamos celebrated his 50th birthday diving underwater in Mexico. And the boys of Glee indulged in a jam session during their downtime. Of course, it wouldn't be a celebrity candids roundup without a picture of Bar Refaeli in a bikini — and can you guess which food-loving model hopped on the ramen burger bandwagon?
We're just a week into the official start of Summer, but Bar Refaeli has been taking advantage of the warm-weather season for weeks. She's all about posting her sunny snaps, sharing her hot bikini moments, and flaunting her fabulous travels on Instagram, and we love to click through them all. Check out Bar's Summer of fun so far — it's sure to heat things up even if you aren't able to hit the beach!
This week, it was all about sunglasses, bare feet, and bike rides as our fashionable favourites kicked off Summer in a very stylish way. Lena Dunham, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Margherita Missoni all showed off their killer shades, while Bar Refaeli kept things bright with a technicolour bikini by the pool. Brad Goreski hit the park with his pups in NYC, and Nicky Hilton got herself around on a bike in London. Behati Prinsloo showed off her bare feet after a day spent walking around the city, while her fellow model Doutzen Kroes shared a bedhead selfie that begs the question: "Why don't we look that good in the morning?"

We may never experience the glamorous life of a supermodel, but luckily we can live vicariously through Bar Refaeli's Instagram posts. Yesterday she turned 28, so we rounded up our favorite of her behind-the-scenes images. From her throwback shots to a look at her best magazine spreads, click through to get a glimpse of Bar's model behaviour.
Gemini are notoriously curious, enthusiastic, and eternally youthful, but with that comes the Gemini twins' paradox: those born between May 21 and June 20 also have a tendency to be restless, moody, and quick to react. Gemini typically are defined by "opposite" personality traits, which is why it makes a lot of sense that some of our favourite models would fall under this astrological sign. Take, for instance, Naomi Campbell (who just celebrated her birthday), Abbey Lee Kershaw, and Adriana Lima — all wildly successful models who can play the seductive siren for Vogue Italia as easily as they can slip into a couture look for Versace or play the coquettish innocent for a coveted Gucci fragrance campaign. We'll let their work speak for itself. Think you know which other models are quintessentially Gemini? Only one way to find out. Set your sights on some of the most stylish Gemini around, here in the gallery.
Bar Refaeli brought one of her three brothers to Germany for the GQ Men of the Year Awards on Friday. She was honored with the Gentlewoman of the Year statue and shared her excitement about bringing a family member along on Twitter, writing, "Couldn't ask for a better date! The one and only, most wonderful brother in the world, love you!" Her sibling wasn't the only special guy on hand, since Shaun White, whom Bar was romantically linked to this Fall, was also there accepting his own title.
Before dressing up for the big night, Bar was seen shopping around Berlin with friends. She traveled overseas following a stop in NYC, where she made multiple glamorous appearances last week. Bar attended the Angel Ball and donned a leather look at a cocktail party for Versace.
Bar Refaeli flashed a sexy smile and showed off her famous curves in a black bikini for the September cover of Maxim. She tops the magazine's annual Hot 100 List and happily chatted with the publication in addition to posing for an accompanying spread. Bar placed third in our annual bikini bracket, just shy of this year's winner, Sofia Vergara, and our runner-up, Halle Berry. Bar's fit frame is often the subject of photo shoots, but last week she played photographer and snapped some photos of Olympic swimmers Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte. She joined rumored boyfriend Shaun White in London at the Games; however, when she spoke with the magazine, she maintained that men rarely talk to her. Here's more from Bar's interview:
- Bar on her favorite body part: "My stomach is hard, and I'm very proud of it. I still eat, though. To me that's one of the best things in life."
- Bar on her Twitter obsession: "I love to tweet. I'm in a battle with myself to get more followers. I even make bets with myself on when I'm going to reach what number. I tweet in English and Hebrew because I'll get lots of messages saying, "Yo, start talking Hebrew! Talk to us in our own language!"
- Bar on the most important thing men should know about women: "If you can't understand them, just give them a hug. That always works."
- Bar on the idea of signing up for JDate: "Maybe if I'm still single when I'm 40, but not for now. I'm not even 30! I think I'll be fine."
Stacy Keibler, Jenna Dewan, and Bar Refaeli met up in the front row of yesterday's Marchesa show in NYC. The presentation from designers Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman is one of the biggest draws for stars every season. Georgina's husband, Harvey Weinstein, was also on hand to check out the collection, as was Vogue's Anna Wintour. Both Bar and Jenna have been making the rounds in the Big Apple over the last few days — make sure to check out all of our Fall Fashion Week coverage! Jenna was a big fan of Keren and Georgina's creations, tweeting, "The Marchesa Fashion show was absolutely breathtaking! A fairy tale come to life. I loved every single dress!" Stacy arrived on the East Coast recently to see just two shows, Michael Kors and Marchesa. She's got another big photo op around the corner with the Oscars on Feb. 26, and perhaps she'll take some inspiration from the runways when it comes to choosing a dress for her upcoming big night with boyfriend George Clooney.
Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue launch party was a hot place to be in NYC last night. SI's new cover girl Kate Upton posed in a red dress alongside fellow models Chrissy Teigen, Bar Refaeli, Alyssa Miller, Anne V, and Irina Shayk. Kate, Chrissy, and Alyssa followed the bash with a flight to Las Vegas, where they'll continue to promote the issue. The ladies stripped down to their bikinis in the latest installment of the annual magazine, which also features athletes Rafael Nadal, Michael Phelps, and Chris Paul. Another pro may be in Kate's life, though there are rumors that Kate Upton is dating Mark Sanchez, the Jets quarterback, but neither has confirmed the romance.
The annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue features some of the world's most famous models in their two-pieces.
