Israeli babes and power players alike will show solidarity Sunday at the Waldorf Astoria for the first annual Times of Israel Gala.
We hear guests will include Leo DiCaprio’s ex, Bar Refaeli, as well as the new “Wonder Woman” Gal Gadot — plus Shimon Peres, former Israel Defense Forces chief Dan Halutz, diplomats Ido Aharoni and Ron Prosor, and “father of the Iron Dome” Daniel Gold.
Also attending: Uri Levin, creator of GPS-based traffic app Waze — who will no doubt get to the event quickest.
Supermodel Bar Refaeli is announced as newest Brand Ambassador for Hublot Swiss Luxury Watch Brand at the Hublot Boutique on Fifth Avenue in New York, NY, on February 12, 2015.
we also added some photos of Bar Refaeli and her brother Dor Refaeli at The Dior Summer Collection launch dinner in Tel Aviv, Israel, on February 8, 2015.

Bar Refaeli Talks Basketball, V-Day Plans, and Her Very First Watch
Hublot has called upon model Bar Refaeli to be its brand ambassador and the face of its newest campaign. Although she comes from humble timepiece beginnings (“My first watch was a Nike watch,” Refaeli tells Style.com. “I was 10 years old, and I’d dreamt about it forever until my dad bought it for me”), today she says she adds a Hublot timepiece to her collection. “I always try to do the best job I can to ‘raise’ my own bar,” she went on. “I can say it is much easier to do so with a brand that I truly love and respect.”
In the campaign, the 29-year-old poses for photographer Chen Man’s lens, sporting a lace gown and the brand’s newest timepiece, the Big Bang Broderie, made in collaboration with Bischoff, the leading Maison Suisse lace house, and which includes 11 diamonds and soft arabesques on the bezel and the strap.
Refaeli follows in the footsteps of ambassadors before her, including Kobe Bryant, Jay Z, Usain Bolt, and Dwyane Wade, who she’ll join today at Hublot’s newest (and largest) flagship store at 743 Fifth Avenue. (That’s another NBA event to add to your NYFW schedule.) “I am a huge basketball fan,” she says. “I’ve been a fan since as long as I can remember. I don’t play sports, but I love watching. I’m always the girl that hangs with the men to watch the big games.”
Refaeli will also be cheering on Wade this weekend as he plays in the NBA All-Stars Game held in New York City, alongside her boyfriend, Adi Ezra. “I’m in New York for the Hublot event with [him],” she says. “We will stay an extra few days and celebrate Valentine’s Day here.”

Bar wowed as she arrived at the Weinstein Company and Netflix’s after-party – as well as the Instyle and Warner Bros. bash – in a glittering, floor-length KaufmanFranco gown.
And an extra touch of pizazz was added to the silver figure-hugging gown with a backless feature, which stopped just short of exposing her pert posterior.
The Sports Illustrated beauty, who hosts the Israeli version of The X Factor, has reportedly been dating businessman Adi Ezra for approximately two years.
She embarked on a romance with Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio in 2005, after they met at a party in Nevadan gambling haven Las Vegas.
Their relationship ended in 2009, but was rekindled the following year, before it was reported in May 2011 that their romance had ended for good.
Leonardo has most recently been romantically linked to chart-topping stunner Rihanna.
