A Visual History of Gigi Hadid, 2015’s Model of the Year

This was absolutely the Year of Gigi.

Gigi Hadid had one hell of a year, and she’s rounding it out in style. The 20-year-old blonde bombshell was crowned Model of the Year 2015 in a reader poll conducted by Models.com, the news leader in the modeling industry (German model Anna Ewers was voted Model of the Year by industry experts).

Her new title is a delightful chase to an otherwise landmark year for the fledgling model. Hadid was also named a Maybelline brand ambassador, appeared in a Pirelli calendar, was featured in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue, made a cameo in the video for Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood”, and made her first appearance at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

It looks to us like 2015 was truly the year of Gigi. We can’t wait to see what 2016 brings.
