While we think that Tel Aviv's food, sun and attractive residents sell themselves, the Tourism Ministry and Israeli Embassy in Madrid wanted to get Bar Refaeli on board to sweeten the deal.In a bid to get more Spanish tourists to the bustling Israeli metropolis, the world-famous Israeli beauty graced the cover of the May issue of Condé Nast Traveler magazine's Spanish edition.
The concept for the Condé Nast travel feature is "Tel Aviv, the avant-garde city."
The cover photo shows Refaeli wearing a futuristic-looking dress while standing barefoot in Jaffa with the Tel Aviv skyline in the background.Over a 12-page spread of photographs taken throughout the city, Refaeli is seen wearing various exquisite outfits from Israeli fashion designer Shahar Levi. The supermodel previously played Tel Aviv tour guide to potential visitors in the September 2012 issue of Vanity Fair, where she gave personal travel tips and talked about how much the city means to her. When asked to name something that she is happy to leave behind when she departs from Tel Aviv, she answered: "Absolutely nothing. I love traveling the world. I love new experiences, meeting people, and I love my job. But in my heart there is always a feeling of missing something."
