Gal Gadot no solo responde a la actriz que representa Wonder Woman en su remake, detrás de ese nombre se encuentra una de las chicas del momento

Gal Gadot no solo responde a la actriz que representa Wonder Woman en su remake de este 2017, detrás de ese nombre se encuentra una de las chicas del momento. Firmas y revistas la quieren como imagen y cada vez son más las apariciones de ésta en todos los medios. De profesión modelo y actriz, en 2004 representó a su país, Israel, en el certamen de belleza Miss Universo en Ecuador.

A pesar de que su nombre empieza a sonar mucho últimamente, dentro de su CV encontramos papeles singulares como el de Gisele Yashar en la saga The Fast and the Furious 5.

Su estilo para el día a día

Pocas imágenes tenemos de ella en la calle, pero su estilo es sencillo y efectivo: con unos pantalones de piel, una camiseta de algodón y un trench militar logra lo que muchas buscamos para el día a día.

Aunque parece ser que su prenda favorita a la hora de salir a la calle son los vestidos cortos, ajustados al cuerpo y con un toque ladylike. En distintas tonalidades y estampados, Gal demuestra que no hay estilo que se le resista.

Su estilo en las alfombras rojas

Su estilo para los eventos de noche es elegante aunque sigue siendo fiel a la sencillez. Los vestidos largos con escote en V son sus favoritos, pero en ocasiones arriesga y se decanta por algo totalmente rompedor como un traje-pantalón (del que somos fans).

Pero si hay un look que tenmos grabado en nuestras retinas es el que lució durante la premiere de Wonder Woman en Los Ángeles: su vestido rojo cut out con lentejuelas rojas escondía un calzado inusual para este tipo de eventos, sandalias planas más propias de un día de verano.

La favorita de las revistas

A pesar de que su nombre hace años que ya suena dentro del mundo del cine, las revistas se han despertado este 2017 y todas quieren tener a la actriz en portada. Desde Glamour a Grazia (edición china) pasando por W Magazine, éstas son algunas de las cabeceras internacionales que no han dudado en contar con su presencia.

Yaron Varsano, un orgulloso marido

Yaron Versano es el marido de la actriz desde 2008. Ambos de procedencia israelí, éste no puede estar más orgulloso de ella y así lo deja patente en sus redes sociales: haciéndose un selfie con una campaña publicitaria en pleno aeropuerto, destacando sus portadas de moda en los quioscos internacionales o luciendo una camiseta donde demuestra que su mujer es Wonder Woman en carne y hueso.

Gal Gadot-Varsano[3] (Hebrew: גל גדות‎‎; Hebrew pronunciation: [ˈɡal ɡaˈdot];[4][5] born April 30, 1985)[6] is an Israeli actress and model.

Military service

At the age of 20, Gadot served for two years as an enlisted soldier in the Israel Defense Forces, serving as a combat trainer.[19] She says of her time in the army: "You give two or three years, and it's not about you. You learn discipline and respect."[20] Gadot says that her background helped her to win the role of Gisele in Fast & Furious: "I think the main reason was that the director Justin Lin really liked that I was in the military, and he wanted to use my knowledge of weapons."[21]
