Gigi had an emotional night at Britain’s Fashion Awards last night, after being awarded the title of International Model of the Year by one of her idols, Donatella Versace. 



The award was presented by the British Fashion Council, the force behind London Fashion Week and a champion of British fashion. The council’s annual awards ceremony celebrates the best of the best in global fashion. 

Other recipients at the start-studded show were Gucci’s Alessandro Michele, who won best International Ready-To-Wear Designer, and Jaden and Willow Smith, who received the New Fashion Icons award.
