More campaigns for Victoria’s Secret, Ralph Lauren and Bellazon followed. In 2009 she finally achieved her breakthrough: She was the first Israeli woman to adorn the cover of the famous “Sports Illustrated”. Last October, the beautiful model was photographed for a GQ cover by international fashion photographer Stefan Imielski. The shoot took place in the luxury hotel Almyra on Cyprus. The results are summery hot shots, in which the now matured Refaeli looks simply stunning. Stefan Imielski Stefan Imielski is an international fashion photographer, born in 1980 in Munich, Germany.
