Bar's unusual outfit showed off her toned midriff with high-waisted, wide-leg trousers with gold buttoned detail and a matching navel-skimming top with long sleeves.

The fiery red colour shows off the model's sunkissed skintone. She chose matching matte red lipstick, with her blonde hair parted in the centre. Going for an overall natural look, her eyes sparkled with subtle eyeshadow and peach blush.

Voted top of Maxim's Top 100 last year, Bar also launched a designer undewear company,

On the way to the awards, Bar tweeted her fans asking for good luck. After receiving the prize she told reporters she was very happy to be at the awards.

"I feel I've worked many years to be here and it's an award you can only get after many years and it's really nice to be recognised for it."Bar looks sunkissed with natural make up showing off her freckles in Vienna ©Rex

On her winning, the founder of the awards Marjan Firouz commented: "She has the charming, natural style of a true 'Style Icon'".

Outside the fashion world, Bar's been in hot water in Israel recently after military chiefs called for her to be banned from commercials promoting the country. They complained that as she didn't complete her military service - compulsory for Israeli citizens - she wasn't an appropriate choice.

But the model shrugged off the criticism, saying her Instagram had more viewers than the biggest Israeli newspaper's readership.
