Each year, a group of 250 fashion industry collects models voting to support Models.com Awards. There are enough talented and diligent models to receive this title, but none are worthy of the 2016 model, Bella Hadid.
This year the model described as “this year’s singular face definition as a whole with the ubiquitous industry needs and presence.” Outstanding top-level booking by the best photographers, stylists and customers Revenue level visibility, making it the most important 2016 Star. “If that does not sound like Hadid, I do not know what it is.
Hadid started the runway head in February 2015 when she first appeared in Tom Ford’s F / W 2015, and everyone was guessing that she might follow her sister Kiki’s footsteps. 2015, Bella’s momentum continues to grow, once 2016, she became a star.
2016 is the real year of Bella Hadid. It is almost impossible to list all the achievements because there are too many really impressive occupations – if not for life to change.
Bella’s 2016 begins with a fashionable feature with Kelly Jenner and Lotimus, which is impressive, but she does not necessarily make a profit because she is a model of the famous man’s sister.
But then she walked in Chanel’s Haute Couture Spring 2016 show in January 2016, and you could see that something was brewing.
Hadid then booked a few editorials and covers for various international versions of Elle. Still impressive for a new face in fashion, but nothing crazy like Vogue Paris.
Then Hadid started picking up some advertising campaigns for the likes of Marc Jacobs and Topshop. In March, she walked for Miu Miu, Chanel and Givenchy. People were starting to pick up on the fact that she was about to be a huge deal.
Throughout the spring and summer, Hadid kept booking editorials and covers for various magazines around the world, including Vogue Turkey, W Korea, and Glamour Germany. Then, it was announced that Hadid is the new face of Dior Beauty. Casual.
The Dior announcement basically opened the floodgates for Hadid’s rise to the top. She then booked advertising campaigns for Givenchy and Calvin Klein, and walked in all of the top couture shows, closing Alexandre Vauthier and Fendi (for those of you unfamiliar with the modeling industry, closing a show is a huge honor that only goes to top models).
And then, her coup de grâce of 2016 was landing the cover of the September issue of Vogue Paris. The best possible cover any model could ever land.
Hadid also landed Vogue Italia‘s September 2016 cover. Two of the biggest issues (if not the biggest issues) in one month. Model of the Year is right. Then she walked in 13 of the top fashion shows for Spring/Summer 2017, including Versace, Fendi and Marc Jacobs, and the rest was history.
And if the above accomplishments don’t convince you of Bella’s Model of the Year status, she earned her crown (read: wings) when she landed a spot on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Runway this December.
