Thirty, flirty and thriving! The famous line from 13 Going on 30 might as well have been written about SI Swimsuit legend Bar Refaeli, who celebrates the big 3-0 today. 

As successful and gorgeous as ever, Bar will forever be an icon and legend around SI Swimsuit, for her whopping six appearances and infamous 2009 cover.

An Israeli native, Bar is best known for her work in campaigns for names like Escada, Chanel, Gap and True Religion. She also has appeared on the covers of numerous high-fashion magazines, including ELLE, GQ, Harper's Bazaar and Cosmopolitan, just to name a few. 

This year has already been huge for Bar, who got engaged to Adi Ezra back in March, landed the cover of Marie Claire España, and continues her reign as one of the sexiest models on Instagram as she jet sets for jobs around the world.  

Here's hoping we look half as fabulous as Bar does when we celebrate 30. Happy Birthday, Bar!
