To say that Bella Hadid had a breakout year in 2016 would be an understatement. The in-demand model, whose older sister, Gigi, had a similarly massive year in 2015, had her moment (and then some) over the past twelve months.
One of the biggest moments for the 20-year-old bombshell, who broke up with singer The Weeknd earlier this fall after dating for over a year, this year was her debut in November's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, the most iconic runway show in the world.
Bella was also completely unavoidable during every single international fashion week this year. From Milan to Paris to New York and London, the brunette beauty was as popular as ever. Not only that, but her show-stopping red carpet gown at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival was arguably the single most memorable red carpet moment of the year.
She also continued to grow her social media dominance in 2016, sharing an endless stream of stunning, sexy, high-fashion and effortless photos that demonstrated why she continues to book some of the biggest fashion campaigns in the world. When she wasn't on set of a photo shoot or walking down the runway, Bella was most likely hanging out with her famous girlfriends in New York City or on a beach somewhere. Natch, it was all documented on social media.
