Every December, models.com rounds up the year with its Model of the Year Awards, where a 250-strong panel of industry insiders cast a vote over who they think have been the top players throughout the last 12 months. Alongside the professional’s chosen winner is a Readers’ Choice, where the votes placed by models.com readers are racked up.
In 2016, Bella Hadid took the crown and Kendall Jenner stole the readers’ hearts, but this year, the top spot has been awarded to none other than Adwoa Aboah, with Bella storming the readers’ choice. Male Model of the Year went to French model, Paul Hameline and megastar Cameron Dallas won over the readers. Adding to her incredibly successful year, Adwoa was also awarded Best Street Style.
