Gal Gadot is one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood right now, and she has been ever since getting her big break as Gisels Yashar in Fast & Furious (2009), and then as Wonder Woman in the DCEU. She first played the role in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Just a short year after 2017’s Wonder Woman and Justice League, she was included on Time’s annual list of the “100 most influential people in the world,” and is one of the highest-paid actresses in the world.
She’s come a long way since being crowned Miss Israel 2004 at the young age of 18. Don’t let that moniker “Miss Israel” fool you, though— after winning the award, she served two years in the Israel Defense Forces as a combat instructor. She’s a woman of substance, class, and power, and she’s hugely empowering to women all over the world.
Let’s take a look at 20 of the hottest pictures of Gal Gadot.
20 Posing For Her People
Being from Israel, she clearly wants to make a good impression to her people, and she does it wonderfully in this stark red dress with slicked-back hair. She’s wearing Galia Lahav for an Israeli TV network here, and shows that she can keep to her Israeli roots and still be incredibly gorgeous.
19 Pretty In White
People going through this article clearly want to see the pictures more than the words, but it’s nice to have some context for some of these beautiful photos. Here, Gal Gadot is attending a “Build Presents the Cast of Wonder Woman” event, and she opted for a low-slung, killer white skirt that only went halfway down her knees.
18 Gazing Into Our Souls
This is what we mean by her different styles: she’s wearing another blue dress here in almost an identical hue (although not an identical style), and yet she looks like a completely different person. It’s definitely not a bad thing— she looks even better with her hair down than when it’s up, arguably. This photo was taken at the National Board of Review Annual Awards Gala in New York City.
Gal can rock a dress better than almost anyone on the planet, but she isn’t afraid to get by in street clothes. Take a look at this leather jacket on her, and how well it fits her body. Also, at how good she is at melding her color scheme just right. Whoever her stylist is should definitely get a raise (if she has one). This is her playing Gisele Yashar in Fast & Furious.
16 Working Out
Gal had to put on some serious muscle in order to play Wonder Woman, and she succeeded with flying colors. Her Instagram page is filled with photos of her posing while working out, and this is the least seductive one we could find… but it’s still pretty dang seductive. Even when she’s sweaty (or maybe especially because she’s sweaty), she knows how to work a camera.
15 Perfect Musculature
We’ve seen how perfect Gal Gadot’s bone structure is— just look at her face— but this photo does a great job of showing off her pristine musculature, too. This shot was taken while she was in the midst of training for Wonder Woman, and somehow she makes that little muscle underneath the shoulder blade look sexy, which would be almost impossible were it anybody else.
14 Another Stunning Movie Shot
This is another photo taken on the set of Fast & Furious 6. Gal performed her own stunts in the two Fast & Furious movies she starred in, and her character oozed charm. Critics praised her representation of Yashar’s sexuality and her relationship with Han Lue, which was one of the first interracial relationships in the franchise. Unfortunately, she didn’t make it past Fast & Furious 6.
13 Red Smirk
Gal Gadot wore this red Prada dress with a low V at the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice premiere in London. She obviously stole the show in this outfit, and it’s no wonder why. She clearly knows that she’s stealing the spotlight: just look at that little smirk! She knows how she looks, and you can tell how fir she is by her body shape and strong arms.
12 Lazing Around
Gal really shot to superstardom when she was chosen to play Wonder Woman. Not that she wasn’t popular before, but this put her in front of millions of more people, and she went on a whirlwind magazine tour where she posed and showed off her natural beauty for everyone. Here she’s in a lacy black dress that’s almost translucent, while carrying a seductive “come hither” look as she leans up against this chair.
Looking at this picture, you might be surprised to learn that Gal Gadot is quite tall: 5’10,” in fact. But this is a deceptive picture, since she’s scrunched up and it's making her look tiny. She’s always been thin, and we’re guessing this was before she started working out for Wonder Woman. All we know is that that’s a really nice collarbone.
This is a younger picture of Gal, and her beauty is quite remarkable. She’s wearing a pretty unique white shirt, has the deep red lipstick that she enjoys so much, and a tilted head to get the good side of her face (though we doubt she has a bad side). Her hair is also perfectly combed to the side. It looks like she might be up against a bathroom wall, but who knows— that could be for effect.
When you see pictures like the two above, and then this one, you see just how much Gal has grown and matured as a woman since she first came onto the celebrity scene. She’s more built here, with a darker skin tone, and this clearly came during her Wonder Woman tour because she looks toned. She’s also clearly very comfortable in her own skin. That green dress is perfectly form-fitting.
8 Showing Off
Everyone knows how pretty Gal Gadot’s face is. If this photo is evidence of anything, it’s that she clearly has curves. In a 2014 video ad for Jeanius Jeans’ push up line, she does a bit of twerking and booty shaking, to show how nice the, uh, jeans are. That video, by the way, has over 200,000 views on YouTube… and it’s a 20-second ad!
7 Making An Entrance
Gal clearly knows how to make an entrance wherever she goes. If it's not the striped dress that’s going to call people’s attention, it’s her smirk and beauty. Recently– as in this month– she made a sweet Instagram video wishing her daughter a happy birthday. She told the sun that having a baby made her feel more like a superhero than saving the cosmos on-screen.
6 Skinny Mini
Every girl needs a little black dress, and Gal’s is pretty perfect on her. She’s clearly loving the attention, too, given the huge smile that's sincere enough to make us all smile, too. She might have gone through a body transformation when she prepared for Wonder Woman, and when she had a child, but she’ll always be this skinny mini at heart.
5 In All Her Warrior Glory
We’d be remiss if we didn’t include a photo of Gal Gadot in all her glory as Wonder Woman. She encapsulated the role perfectly, and has been a huge force for social justice in the real world, in terms of women’s empowerment. Every girl needs a superhero they can look up to— it can’t just be Disney princesses all the time— and Gal Gadot captured that flawlessly and became a role model.
4 As Hedy Lamarr
Gal Gadot is also playing famous actress Hedy Lamarr in an upcoming biopic on Showtime, and she is arguably more beautiful than Lamarr herself. Hedy was known for films like Algiers (1938), Lady of the Tropics (1939), and Cecil B. DeMille’s Samson and Delilah (1949). She also helped build a radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes during WWII, making her a true war hero as well as an actress. Even Gal can’t say that she’s a war hero… yet– she’s close after serving in the Israel Defense Forces.
3 She's Blue
Gal can do no wrong when it comes to her wardrobe, clearly, but she can also do no wrong when it comes to her hair. She has many different styles that she rocks, but this simple, pulled-back style really shows off her face. The blue dress makes her perfect skin pop, as well as that deep red lipstick. This was a picture shown on Vogue when introducing the new Wonder Woman. People were not disappointed.
2 Showing Off Again
Gal Gadot knows how to show off her body. Whether she’s getting buff and ripped for Wonder Woman, or just living a normal life (for a celebrity), she always seems to be in good shape. Here, she’s showing that ridiculously thick thighs save lives– as the saying goes– while also posing in a beautiful red dress, undoubtedly for a fashion magazine.
1 Pretty In Pink
With her natural sheen, Gal can pretty much make any article of clothing look great in any color. She doesn’t wear pink very often, but when she does, she really knows how to stand out. This stunning Elle photoshoot dazzles with a “bubblegum-coloured Culotte suit,” according to Elle.com. She has a deeper hot pink shirt underneath it all, too.
