As designer Donatella Versace presented her with the prize, Gigi can’t hide her delight and emotions.

“(Thank you) for teaching me and for looking beyond and for being the most amazing industry I could ever ask to be a part of. You guys are a dream come true so thank you so much,” Gigi told the crowd while on stage.

Gigi Hadid was up against her best friend Kendall Jenner, sister Bella Hadid, and other fashionistas Adwoa Aboah and Lineisy Montero.

It’s been a productive year for the fashion icon, including walking for last week’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and with her collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger on a fashion line.
