(ChattahBox) — Model Bar Refaeli has landed on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s 2009 Swimsuit Issue. The 46th edition cover was revealed Feb. 9, 2009, during a taping of “Late Show with David Letterman,” which will air on Wednesday, Feb. 11th.

Refaeli, girlfriend to actor Leonardo DiCaprio, had been rumored to be the publisher’s top pick for the iconic issue and narrowly missed being on the cover last year. Insiders say “Leo wants Bar to be on the cover – it will really piss off Gisele [Bundchen],” Leo’s ex-girlfriend and current Tom Brady squeeze’.

The 23-year-old Israeli model has been the subject of increasing buzz since becoming the new face of Marks and Spencer’s Valentine’s Day lingerie range.

According to rumors, Refaeli also is being courted by MTV to revive the 1990s “House of Style” show pioneered by Cindy Crawford.

Sports Illustrated’s 2009 Swimsuit Issue is available (Today) Tuesday, Feb. 10th, in all its glory.
