It’s been a whirlwind of a year for supermodel besties Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. From dominating Paris Fashion Week to strutting lingerie’s biggest night out, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, together, it’s no surprise 2015 was undoubtably the dynamic duo’s best year yet. But they’ve still got one more goal to achieve: the coveted model of the year award, which was Models.com bestowed on supermodel Anna Ewers.

NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 20: Anna Ewers attends the 2

Earlier today, Models.com‘s Model of the Year Industry Awards (voted on by 250+ designers and insiders) named Ewers, a 22-year-old German model and industry favorite (she’s a runway regular in Alexander Wang shows and is currently fronting Hugo Boss’s ad campaign) 2015’s Model of the Year.

But before you start petitioning for a recount, read on: they didn’t go home (on their private jets) empty-handed.

Readers’ votes tallied up to name Hadid, 20, the model of the year (and she nabbed the “runner-up” title from the industry insiders). Her pal Jenner, 20, got the runner-up place in the readers’ votes category.

And to showcase the fact that these three ladies are, in fact, the top of their class, we’ve highlighted their most awe-worthy catwalk moments from 2015, below.

During Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, Jenner made her Chanel debut, making momager Kris Jenner one proud mama, and then took returned this fall, sporting a swath of blue shadow, for the French fashion house’s Spring/Summer 2016 show.

Meanwhile, Hadid stole the show at Versace in an embellished multicolor mini and neon-hued platform sandals, which solidified her spot in the label’s brand-new campaign ads for Spring/Summer 2016.

And as for Ewers, the blonde beauty channeled her inner cool-girl goth in Alexander Wang’s Spring/Summer 2016 show, donning the designer’s fringed leather dress and a pair of crisp, white sneakers with red laces.
