When she shunned classic black for midnight blue and nailed it.

Gigi Hadid was named Model of the Year at last night's Fashion LA Awards.

The stunning 19-year-old is making a serious mark on the industry, appearing in Guess' Spring 15 campaign and recently being named as the new face of Maybelline.

Now her status as fashion's hottest new face has been cemented with the title of Model of the Year at The Daily Front Row's event.

Last night the blond beauty took to the stage in a clingy pink one-shoulder gown to accept the honour. Her hair was tied back in a loose updo and she finished the look off with strappy black sandals and a metallic clutch.

Her lucky boyfriend Cody Simpson was on hand for support, looking laidback in jeans, an untucked blue shirt and leather jacket.

"I think that it’s nice when someone can go and look more exotic and do the girl-next-door thing, as well. It goes with the whole high fashion versus commercial thing that’s big right now. I think that perhaps people like me because I’ve been doing both," Gigi told Style.com when asked why she thinks she scooped the award.

Victoria's Secret previously named her best at taking selfie - so it only seemed fair the gorgeous star shared her top tips.

"Good lighting. Always be near a window if you’re inside. Natural light. And then when you’re outside, it’s always good to be in a sunny place but in the shade facing the light so you’re not overexposed," she advised.

Gigi wasn't the only one to win big yesterday - Jeremy Scott was awarded with Designer of the Year. His celebrity pal Miley Cyrus was on hand to present him with the honour.
