In 2017, together with her friend, businesswoman Yafit Attias, Abargil launched a fashion label aimed to serve the modesty needs of religious women. They named the line LYA, an amalgam of the initials of both women.
Brave Miss World premiered on Israeli television in 2013, to positive reviews and public reception, and was screened at multiple film festivals in the United States and Europe throughout 2013 and 2014. The film was nominated for a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Documentary Film.
After winning Miss World, Abargil continued to work as a model in Israel and internationally, and enrolled to study drama at Beit Zvi School for the Performing Arts. Afterwards, she appeared in several plays and television series. However, between her decision to become an Orthodox Jew in 2009, which put an end to her modeling, and her commitment to fighting sexual violence, Abargil decided on a new direction, and decided to study law at the Netanya Academic College. She then went on to work for the Tel Aviv District Attorney.
In 2008, Abargil initiated filming of a documentary film based on her rape and subsequent activism, Brave Miss World. Directed by Cecilia Peck, the film followed Abergil as she traveled the world lecturing to groups and meeting women and encouraging them to talk about their experiences with sexual violence. The film also documents her attempts to deal with the aftermath of the violence she experienced, her relationships with family members, her eventual embracing of Orthodox Judaism (after which she no longer worked as a model), the campaign to keep Nur imprisoned, her decision to study law and work for the District Attorney's Office, and the release of a song she wrote about forgiveness between mother and daughter after the daughter is raped. Among the women participating in the film are students, mothers, elderly women, and several celebrities such as Joan Collins and Fran Drescher, who recounted their own stories of sexual assault. At the end of the film, Abargil retraces her steps in Italy, from before and after the rape, meets with those who helped her, such as the examining physician, and confronts the modeling agents whom she holds responsible for knowingly sending her and other young women into danger from known sexual predators. The film also follows Abargil's personal life, her marriage, the births of her first two children, and her spiritual journey.
Abargil married Lithuanian basketball player Šarūnas Jasikevičius in a ceremony near Barcelona, in July 2006. They divorced in 2008. In 2010, Abargil married manager Oron Calfon, and embraced Orthodox Judaism. In 2012, she gave birth to twins (a son and a daughter), and in 2013, she gave birth to a daughter. She gave birth to another daughter in September 2019. Abargil also earned an undergraduate law degree from Netanya Academic College, and was admitted to the Israeli Bar.
In 1996, at age 16, she was signed by Look modeling agency, and proceeded to win the title "Discovery of the Year" in the 1987 modeling contest. In 1998, at 18, she was named Miss Israel, and went on to compete in the Miss World competition in Seychelles.
