Israeli model Bar Refaeli has been declared sixth hottest woman in the world. The latest honor for the 25-year-old model comes from Maxim, the popular men’s magazine.

Maxim recently released its annual list titled the “Hot 100.” The list includes some of the most beautiful women in television, film and modeling.

Refaeli has been featured in the magazine several times. In the same poll last year she was ranked 19.

According to Maxim, the top five most beautiful women in 2011 are Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Olivia Munn, Katy Perry, Cameron Diaz and Mila Kunis.

Refaeli, who has been linked romantically to American actor Leonardo DiCaprio, beat out the likes of Scarlett Johansson (14), Megan Fox (17), Rihanna (22) and Natalie Portman (8).
