Dressed in an elegant sculptured jumpsuit by Atelier Versace, the 21-year-old beat out sister Bella Hadid, and friend Kendall Jenner to swoop up the award.

Overcome with emotion as Donatella Versace handed her the award, Gigi reflected, “This is crazy,” adding, “I just want to say that I know I’m in the generation of social media, and I’m so blessed for that, but the fashion industry is my family.”

Gigi went on to thank numerous people in the industry including fashion photographer Bruce Weber and fashion stylist and editor, Carine Roitfeld for helping her get started in modeling.

“To everyone who has been so genuine, and looked beyond what the rest of the world looked for, that has meant so much to me,” Hadid revealed. “You guys know who I am, and that to me means so much.”
