Ranked number one on Models.com’s Social Influencers List, with a total following of 33.5 million followers at time of publication (a cool 12 million ahead of her nearest rival Tyra Banks) Jenner has benefited from the juggernaut that is the Kardashians, netting some serious campaigns in 2014, with more set to come in 2015. The new face of beauty giant Estee Lauder, walking the runway at fashion week for industry stalwarts such as Chanel, Balmain, Givenchy and DVF, Jenner, who is rumoured to be trying to separate herself from the Kardashian name has certainly staked her claim for the model of the moment.
2014 has been a big year for Gigi. Landing campaigns such as Tom Ford with Miley’s new beau Patrick Schwarzenegger, appearing in the annual Pirelli calendar, shooting the new Victoria’s Secret Pink campaign, heading down under for the Melbourne Cup and reuniting with on and off boyfriend, Aussie muso Cody Simpson, the list goes on. A favourite of Carine Roitfield, this cherubic faced teen is set to make bigger waves in the industry in 2015.

There must be something in the water at the Hadid household because Gigi’s younger sister Bella is set to be as big as her sister in 2015. Possessing the same flawless skin and envious figure as Gigi, Bella landed a cover and editorial in Jalouse Magazine, walked for Desigual and rounded off the year with a sultry turn in Love Magazines online advent calendar. Definitely one to watch.
