Just recently, 19-year-old Sudanese Australian model, Adut Akech made headlines as the 2018 model of the year beating Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid and 2017 winner Ghanaian-British model Adwoah Aboah.

Akech was not the only black model that won a title in models.com awards. Rihanna made the list as the 2018 Celebrity Model of the Year.
