Cara Delevingne, the model on her way out
While she is not likely to make headlines as a model in 2016, there was a lot said about Cara Delevingne this year, mainly because she is stepping away from the modelling world. She explained her reasons to a magazine — issues in the fashion sector and her desire to work in movies. Since then, the woman who could have become the top model of the future has begun an acting career with a role in Pan, among others. She is also expected to be seen in Suicide Squad and Valerian, which will release in 2016 and 2017, respectively. Delevingne did make an appearance in the Stella McCartney lingerie campaign, but it was for a breast cancer charity.
Stella Maxwell, the latest to emerge
A lot was written about this Belgian 24-year-old model this year, due to her presence in both ad campaigns and on the ramp for famous brands, and for her relationship with Miley Cyrus. This blue-eyed blonde became a Victoria’s Secret Angel in April. This could quickly make her one of the most in-demand models on the planet.
Gigi Hadid, the model on her way up
The pretty blonde has all it takes to become a supermodel in the years to come. Aged only 20, she already has an impressive CV, as she began her career when she was just three. Just like Kendall Jenner, Hadid was selected for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. The announcement greatly moved her, as can be seen in the video of her audition that she put up on Instagram.
Kendall Jenner, the star model
If there’s one name to remember this year, it’s undoubtedly Jenner, who has been courted by the most famous ready-to-wear brands and couture fashion houses. In 2015, this young woman, who is just 20, won a string of contracts including ad campaigns for Estée Lauder, Karl Lagerfeld, Calvin Klein, Balmain and Topshop.
