2015 was, undoubtedly, the year of Gigi Hadid. She scored fashion campaigns, magazine covers, high-profile runways, and even directed a music video. Despite all of her success, Gigi somehow was not crowned "Model of the Year" by the industry insiders who voted in Models.com Model of the Year Industry Awards. I know. WTF??
Anna is, of course, also successful. She's walked in runway shows across the world—Balenciaga and Balmain, to name a few—and landed a number of magazine covers—Vogue UK and Harper's Bazaar, among others—and starred in campaigns for Prada and H&M. Still, it's hard to deny the ubiquity, following, and rise of someone like Gigi.
To be fair, this was Gigi's breakout year, and we'll most certainly be seeing more of her in 2016. Maybe it'll just take another 12 months for the industry to catch up with the rest of us.
