Gal Gadot is on fire.

Ever since she was tapped for the role of Wonder Woman in the upcoming film, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Israeli model/actress has continued to make headlines, particularly since she'll be playing one of the most important characters of the franchise, and even star in Wonder Woman, set to drop sometime in 2017. It's essentially the most important role for an Israeli actress to ever play in Hollywood history.

And of course, let's not forget her role in the ongoing Fast & Furious franchise.

The Israeli actress, #7 on our Top 50 Hottest Jewish Women of 2014 list, is also working on a new film, Criminal, where she'll star alongside Kevin Costner, Ryan Reynolds, Gary Oldman and Tommy Lee Jones, and has now been tapped as the face of a new Gucci perfume for women.

Gadot announced Gucci's decision earlier on both her Instagram and Facebook accounts, and will follow in the footsteps of actors like James Franco and Blake Lively, who've previously held positions as the face of a Gucci fragrance.

Reports claim that Gadot will earn hundreds of thousands following her work on the campaign.
