Congratulations to her.

The twenty-three year old had already become the first Israeli model to be featured in Sports Illustrated, and now she graces the cover. Refaeli got her big break at the age of fifteen when she was featured in campaigns for the fashion brands Castro and Pilpel. She soon was moving up to big and greater exposure, and her future remains very bright.

You can now see her sensational figure and stunning looks in the Swimsuit Issue available on newsstands today. Or you can take a look at some of her best work below:
