Bella Hadid has won the coveted “Model Of The Year” gong at GQ magazine’s annual awards ceremony.

Hadid was said to be visibly shocked by the honor, and claimed she was “having a heart attack a little bit” as she took the stage to accept the award from fellow model, Ashley Graham. Award in hand, the 19-year-old supermodel teen paid tribute to her mother, former model and reality star, Yolanda Foster. “This is the first time my mom has been out of bed in four years and got her hair and makeup done and I’m so happy she’s here,” she told the crowd, referencing her mother’s public battle with Lyme Disease.

Hadid later marked the occasion by taking to Instagram to show off her stylish and classy magazine cover for the October issue of British GQ. Check it out above.
