Bar Refaeli Talks Israeli Politics, "House Of Style" Hosting Gig

In an interview with Time, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition covergirl (and girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio) Bar Refaeli confirmed she'll be hosting the return of MTV's "House of Style."

So what are you doing next after this?

I'm shooting a show for MTV; we're starting right after all the parties for Sports Illustrated. And then I have work, work, work, work. The show is called House of Style. They used to do it before, and now they're bringing it back. So it's very exciting. The year hasn't started yet and it's already been the best I've ever had.

Earlier reports stated that the hostessing gig would go to Refaeli or model Chanel Iman.

The 23-year-old Israeli also shied from talk of politics in her homeland.

You're Israeli. Are you voting in the elections?
I am in New York, so I can't.

How do you think they're going to go?
I actually don't know who I would vote for. If I knew I was going to, I'd probably research more. I think I'd probably go for [Foreign Minister Tzipi] Livni, but I don't know.
