2015's Model Of The Year: & it's not Gigi or Kendall

Screen Shot 2015-12-23 at 5.06.13 pm It's that time of year again in which models.com releases its Model Of The Year Awards wherein 250 industry insiders as well as models.com readers cast their votes to determine the top faces of 2015. Audiences were surprised to learn that best friends Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner were knocked off the top spot with Gigi earning Runner Up and Kendall Reader's Choice Runner Up after their 2015 domination - including both walking their first Victoria's Secret Fashion show, their social media success with continuously gaining millions of followers and likes, and the seemingly never ending campaigns - even together (cough cough, Balmain). Voted by top industry people including editors, photographers, casting directors, hair and makeup artists, and top designers - Anna Ewers took away the award for this year's Model of The Year . Anna has largely worked with Wang at his eponymous label, she was continuously seen on the runway and throughout his campaigns, as well as at with European fashion house, Balenciaga. She's one of the models who has been listed on models.com's Top 50 list, she has been on a couple covers of Vogue - as well as one for Harpers Bazaar, and she's been recently featured in various ads for brands such as H&M and Hugo Boss - so I guess it's fair to say she's had a pretty big year. AnnaE Blonde haired, blue eyed babe Lucky Blue Smith also took out the award for Model Of the Year for the men's category (and anyone who follows his social media will understand why).
