Gigi Hadid has made her mark on the modeling world in 2016, and now she has the award to prove it. At The Fashion Awards on Monday night in London, the 21-year-old took home the trophy for International Model of the Year from the British Fashion Council, beating out her younger sister Bella Hadid and BFF Kendall Jenner for the honor.

The catwalker had an emotional response to being named the best in the biz and shared a sweet message alongside a photo of herself with Donatella Versace on Instagram. “To be voted for this award by the @britishfashioncouncil, to stand in front of an audience full of my greatest inspirations, idols, and friends, and to be presented International Model of the Year by my angel @donatella_versace was one of the most humbling and emotional experiences of my life,” she wrote.

“To walk into that room and feel so at home is a great blessing and I have & will cherish every friend, memory, lesson, and adventure this industry has given me, forever. I can’t wait to continue to grow and create with all of you, and to see what the future holds.”
