Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli is the hottest woman in the world, according to Maxim magazine’s annual list of the world’s most beautiful females.

The men’s magazine will crown Refaeli in its upcoming issue, after readers chose the Israeli over last year’s winner Brit Rosie Huntington Whiteley.

Refaeli, a model turned actress who hails from Hod Hasharon, was ranked No. 6 on the Hot 100 list last year. The year before, the stunner took No. 3.

Actress Mila Kunis, who recently opened up about her Jewish heritage, will reportedly take the No. 3 spot this year.

Refaeli, who was romantically linked to Leonardo DiCaprio for several years, is slated to star in an upcoming French-Israeli production based on the 2010 Dubai assassination of Hamas apparatchik Mahmoud Al- Mabhouh, which was widely blamed on the Mossad.

The family of Mabhouh said Sunday they would sue to block the movie’s release.
