    MONTREAL, May 26 /CNW Telbec/ - Garnier Canada is thrilled to announce
that striking supermodel Bar Refaeli has recently signed on as Garnier
International's newest spokesperson. She will be making her Canadian debut in
the Garnier Fructis Style television campaign airing this fall.
    The international supermodel joins Garnier's prestigious roster of A-list
celebrities, including Canada's own Chantal Kreviazuk and Chantal Lacroix,
Sarah Jessica Parker in the United States, Sabrina Ferelli in Italy, Nathalie
Baye in France and Davina McCall in the UK.
    Hélène Azancot, Garnier International's General Manager, notes: "Bar
Refaeli incarnates Garnier's vision of healthy beauty. Her hair, as well as
her body, reflect wellness and health. She is perfectly in line with Garnier's
values. She is natural, modern, spontaneous, and athletic; she is simply
irresistible!"
    Bar Refaeli was born in a rural region of Israel. She was raised on a
horse ranch where she has been riding ever since she was a little girl. She
started modelling before she could even walk! In fact, by the time she was 8
months old, Bar Refaeli was already starring in commercials. However, her real
modelling career started at the age of 11 when she appeared in several famous
Israeli magazines.
    Bar Refaeli won the title of Model of the Year in a renowned beauty
contest in both 2000 and 2001. Since then, she has been featured on several
magazine covers and has secured gigs with international brands like GQ and
Ralph Lauren.
    She is incontrovertibly one of the freshest faces in the fashion and
beauty industry today. Having reached international acclaim, Bar Refaeli was
selected for an international fashion shoot in ELLE France magazine. "The
editorial page in ELLE France has laid claim to my celebrity", laughs Bar.
    The supermodel symbolizes style, elegance and natural healthy beauty. As
an iconic figure in the modelling world, Bar has worked with some of the best
photographers in the industry. She is thrilled to have signed with Garnier
International.
    Bar Refaeli will be the fresh face for Garnier Fructis Style Hold & Flex
hair sprays with natural bamboo extract, launching this summer. She will make
her debut on Canadian television in commercials airing in September./NOTE TO PHOTO EDITORS: A photo accompanying this release is available on
