Anna Ewers: 2015 Model of the Year
Best known as Alexander Wang‘s muse
Models.com has just launched its 2015 Model of the Year Industry Awards, which honors fashion figures across multiple categories. The vote, the website explained in a post Friday, was divided into two segments — one poll among readers, and one among industry types like Katie Grand, Edward Enninful, Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele and Bethann Hardison. In the Women's category of Model of the Year for 2015, there are three talented frontrunners. Readers elected Gigi Hadid to the top spot, with Kendall Jenner as a runner-up. Hadid was also named to the second place spot by industry leaders, who elected to present German model Anna Ewers with the annual honor. Ewers was voted number one by a panel of 250 industry experts including designers, stylists and editors, and beat a short list of models including Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn and Kendall Jenner to the top spot. The 22-year-old German beauty was a Vogue cover model nine times between July 2013 and May 2015 and has been featured in campaigns for H&M, Alexander Wang and Chanel.
