ar Refaeli tries out a short brunette crop


We Bar-ely recognised you! Blonde beauty Bar Refaeli tries out a short brunette crop

She's famous for her golden tan, lithe toned figure and perhaps best for her long, blonde locks.

But model Bar Refaeli looked unrecognisable yesterday when she posted a picture of herself on Twitter sporting a brunette, gamine crop.

The 26-year-old did not write an explanation to accompany the picture, but it appears to have been taken on a modelling photoshoot.

Given the Bar followed the picture up with others of herself with blonde mane firmly in place, it is safe to say she was simply wearing a wig.

In the photo, Leonardo DiCaprio's ex wears a T-shirt declaring 'I love life' over blue underwear.

She touches her hands to her heavily made-up face beneath her tousled, bed-head crop.

The pixie-style look is a far cry from Bar's recent photoshoot for swimwear brand Passionata.

For the ad campaign, Bar looks cute in a Sixties-style shoot which sees her model floral designs with a Brigitte Bardot-style bouffant.

Earlier this week Bar tweeted another behind the scenes picture of a modelling shoot, but told her followers that she wasn't well, and was retreating home to fight a flu.
