Israeli supermodels Bar Refaeli and Esti Ginzburg are well known to anyone who’s seen the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition or Victoria’s Secret ads. Former Miss Israel Gal Gadot has risen from supermodel to superstar as she is poised to play Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Though these women and others listed in ISRAEL21c’s 2011 look at Israeli top models are still at the height of their careers, we decided the time has come to introduce readers to the latest crop of Israeli models storming the world’s catwalks.

We compiled this list of 10 standouts with the help of Maya Kramer, formerly a model booker for DNA Models in New York and currently cofounder and chief stylist at Stylit in Israel.

1. Israela Avtau, 5’9, born in 1988

The Ethiopian-Israeli Avtau, raised in Eilat, planned to become a flight attendant. She won an Elite Top Models contract at age 16 and four years later sought her fortune in New York, where she now resides except for frequent visits to Israel. Avtau was the face of multimillion-dollar campaigns for Avon cosmetics in the US and Vichy cosmetics in Paris. She is said to be the highest-earning Israeli-born model after Bar Refaeli.

2. Noam Frost: 5’11, born in 1993

She’s been featured on the covers of magazines from ELLE Mexico to SCMP Style in China, and has walked the runways of designers such as Christopher Kane, Calvin Klein, Victoria Beckham, Mulberry and Veronique Branquinho. Over the past four years, Frost has become a hot international model represented by agencies in Paris, Barcelona, Milan, New York, Copenhagen and London. She was introduced to the industry by her father, a reality TV show director.
