It's definitely been the year of the rising model. New models, new faces and new talent have strutted into the industry this year and made their mark. Now, Model of the Year Industry Awards (Models.com) have announced the favourites.

In a poll divided into two sections, the model category was put in the hands of the readers and the other, in the hands of the industry. American model, Gigi Hadid shot to fame this year with her social media presence, statement style and campaign take-over winning the readers choice award while German model, Anna Ewers, won the industry choice. Anna has appeared in numerous campaigns, runway shows and spent most of 2015 playing the part of Alexander Wang's muse.
