Models.com "Model of the Year Awards" 2016
Models.com has opened the annual poll to vote for the Model of the Year.
Deadline for submitting your final votes is December 21st 2016. Click here to vote.

I thought it could be interesting to open a thread here on TFS to discuss the nominees, share our opinions on who deserves to win etc.
Below are the MDC nominees, but you can also vote for anyone else you want.

Model of the Year
Quote:
The biggest and brightest star of 2016 aka the girl or guy who has distinguished themselves via top tier work with the best photographers, stylists and magazines, leaving the competition in the dust and standing out as the year's foremost star. Since the awards are voted on by a panel of industry insiders, this is also the model whose work has struck the biggest chord with fashion's elite.

Breakout Star for Men is god awful. No mention of Oscar Kindelan, Max Fieschi, Ville Sydfors, Benno Bulang - all "breakouts" from their previous articles. What the nominees look like to me is a bunch of Coach75 models put together (even that show Oscar Kindelan was a part of). Model of the Year (Men) also disastrous, where is Finnlay Davis? He is the TOP runway model with campaigns and editorials to back him up. The men nominees is god awful. Lucky Blue Smith? Seriously? Finnlay Davis has gigantic Coach posters everywhere where I'm from and all Lucky Blue Smith holds is an A4 size cardboard for Tom Ford Eyewear.

WOW, Vittoria is really a hit now! She didn't even get a nomination for breakout star last year and this year she just goes straightforward to "model of the year"
Imo, Rianne van Rompaey should get Model of the Year cause her works are always stunning and she's probably got the most campaigns and vogue covers apart from Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid?(aka nepotism celebrities)And these two should be moved into "Best Celebrity as Model"
As for Breakout Star, I would like to vote for Vittoria Ceretti. She is obviously everywhere^^

My pick for model of the year is probably Grace or Rianne, although anyone is a worthy winner. I wouldn't say Bella, Gigi or Kendall are really models in an industry sense, they kind of operate somewhere between being models and celebrities, so i'll always pick a model model over them. Still, of the three, 2016 was definitely Bella's year, she went from third rate covers and Balmain cameos to being a bonafide super - all the right shows, a constant stream of top covers. Ashley Graham also had an amazing year, but i'm not sure her impact was as universal, in terms of both commercial and HF work, to warrant model of the year.

Model of The Year: Rianne. Her print work was consistently exceptional; starring in some of the year's best campaigns, covers, and editorials. It is always a pleasure to see her name pop up on the forum because she always delivers and most times even gives more. She was by no means a top walker, but her showlist is the embodiment of quality of quantity. Rianne was one of the few bright moments from 2016.

Breakout Star: Adwoa.

As dull and rigged as the Academy Awards.

But yeah I'm with everyone else so far, Rianne for Model Of The Year. If Vittoria wins it I wouldn't so mad either.

I despise/can't care less about this awards as soon as I realised Kendull, Gigi and Bella are not in the "Best Celebrity as Model" category. Having said that, Rianne, Lexi and Vittoria all deserve to win the title.

Heck even Dylan Roques can be a breakout star. After a season of being an exclusive for Dior Homme, the season after he shot up to 3rd on the runway rankings. He is also a favorite amongst backstage editorials appearing in almost all websites for major publications and some even made it to print. The male nominees are always a disappointment. Johan Kroon can also be a breakout star, one of the few Estonians or probably the only Estonian to walk for Burberry, editorials in ODDA magazine and Dior Homme advertorials for a Chinese magazine. Andrei Dobrin, Romanian model of the year, walked for Ann Demeulemeester, closed MSGM, MDCs own model of the week, he has potential.
