The Fashion Awards, an annual event created by the British Fashion Council aimed at celebrating the industry’s brightest talents in design, business and modeling, announced its 2018 nominees on Tuesday. Partnering once again with Swarovski, the Fashion Awards will honor the winners — which will be voted on by over 2,000 industry players from 32 different countries — at a swanky gala on December 10 at Royal Albert Hall in London. The ceremony exists in part to raise money for the BFC’s Education Foundation, which supports emerging fashion talent.
See the full list of this year’s nominees for ‘Model fo the Year’, and stay tuned for more coverage once the winners are announced.
Model of the Year
To mark the end of the New York collections, director Bardia Zeinali and fashion editor Jorden Bickham invited the Hadid Family, Yolanda, Gigi, Bella, and Anwar to enjoy a small dinner wearing some of the chicest looks from the week. Then the spooky stuff happened.
At this point, Bella Hadid is one of the most well-known models in the world. From Vogue covers to major campaigns, runway shows and everything in between, it’s almost like she was born on the catwalk. But of course, that isn’t the case because that would be, well… really strange and we would have a lot of questions. Anyway, having been in the business for several years working her way up, Bella has figured out a trick or two for making it as a model and luckily for all of us, she’s willing to share it with the world.
After hitting the runway for Brandon Maxwell‘s stunning Texas-themed runway extravaganza with Kia, Bella shared her secret to success in modeling and TBH, it’s pretty simple. “100% it would be just to be yourself and to not try to be anybody else,” she tells Teen Vogue after the show. “And it sounds so cliché, but you see girl backstage sometimes that finally, now, after three years of being in the business, can be themselves and show who they really are, and it’s the best part about them. Sometimes people try to get put into a box, and there are no boxes here.” She also mentioned that perfection isn’t the key to success in this industry, it’s how you treat people. She says it doesn’t matter “if your walk is a little wobbly,” and she advises that it’s “about the relationships you make, about the kindness that you spread, and obviously working really hard you have to have a great mindset to be in this business.”
Though becoming a model can seem like an impossible career to break into Bella’s advice is to jump right in, be yourself and go for it. She does, however, want aspiring models to know that it’s hard work and you have to be willing to do it. “If anybody wants to try modeling, and if that’s their passion than do it 100%. There’s room for everybody in the business to succeed and I think that people try to pick and choose, but there’s enough room for everybody if you work hard enough, for sure.”
So you heard it straight from one of the high-earning models in the world: work hard, play nice, and never forget who you are!

A group of students from Oceanside High in New York got a surprise guest at their senior prom this week. Bella Hadid took some time out of her busy schedule to crash the festivities as some of the students celebrated their prom on a party bus. In snaps shared to social media on Monday the model is pictured posing with the teens who are all sporting their glitzy formal wear.
The LA native apparently was on her way to the airport to catch a flight to Germany when she stumbled upon the busload of teens probably getting ready to sing along to “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)” by Green Day in a school gymnasium.
‘BELLA HADID IS ON MY SCHOOLS PROM BUS I CANT STOP LAUGHING,’ wrote a user named Jackie. ‘For the people that don’t believe me bella hadid is on some of my friends party bus for prom‘ she added alongside photos of Bella mingling with the prom-goers. ‘Why is Bella hadid in my town?and at prom?‘ came a tweet from another student.
During the day the catwalk beauty was seen on a photo shoot in Long Beach, New York which is near where Oceanside High is situated.
