It's been a big year for diversity in fashion (we don't need to tell you why, but if you're interested, there's more here). 

In a fitting nomination to cap off the year that was, Hari Nef has been nominated for Models.com's Breakout Star, as part of the famed Model of the Year.

It's a pretty exciting announcement, but hardly surprising given the calibre of campaigns she's fronted this year.

This year's shortlist also sees curve model, Ashley Graham, nominated for Model of the Year. She's in good company, with other nominees including Bella and Gigi Hadid, Irina Shayk, Kendall Jenner and Lexi Boling. 

Other categories include Male Model of the Year, Social Media Star of the Year, Best Celebrity as Model and Humanitarian.

The votes are now open for Readers' Choice so get cracking. If you're into voting for models, that is.
