Gigi and Bella Hadid are both in the running for Model of the Year award.

The sisters have both been nominated for  the prestigious title at this year’s Fashion Awards 2017, alongside newcomer Kaia Gerber, Adwoa Aboah and Winnie Harlow.

The 22-year-old model picked up the gong for the same category at last year’s bash, and the blonde beauty is in the running to claim the title for another year as she goes head to head with her 21-year-old sister at the highly anticipated ceremony, which will take place at London’s Royal Albert Hall on December 4.

Speaking about the upcoming extravaganza, the chairwoman of the British Fashion Council, Natalie Massenet said: “These designers and brands were chosen from hundreds of international names and they represent the most creative talent and innovative businesses of the year.”

Gigi and Bella will also vie with supermodel Cindy Crawford’s 16-year-old daughter Kaia Gerber for the accolade after she made her debut runway appearance during Fashion Week this year.

The trio will also go against Winnie Harlow and Adwoa Aboah to take home the gong.

Henry Holland – who launched his eponymous label in 2008 – has been pitted against Phoebe English, Charles Jeffrey, Samuel Ross, as well as Cottweiler’s Ben Cottrell and Matthew Dainty to be named the Menswear British Emerging Talent, whilst Michael Halpern is in the running to pick up the Womenswear British Emerging Talent award.

Gucci’s Alessandro Michele and Loewe’s Jonathan Anderson will go up against Dior’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri – who announced she had joined the prestigious brand in 2016 – as well as Phoebe Philo and Calvin Klein’s Raf Simons to be named the Designer of the Year.

Jonathan has also received an additional three nods at the upcoming bash as he has been nominated for the Accessories Designer of the Year gong, as well as the Menswear and Womenswear Designer of the Year titles.

Rihanna is also in the running to pick up an honour at the event as her Fenty Puma by Rihanna brand has been shortlisted for the Urban Luxe Brand category, and will go against Gosha Rubchinskiy, Off-White, Supreme and Vetements to receive the award.
