This week, we check in with the Grammy 2017 nominee reactions, London Fashion Awards shenanigans and get backstage access to the Chanel Métiers d'Art show

1. Gigi Hadid goes international
Picking up the award for International Model of the Year by the British Fashion Council in London, it was her big night hot off her appearances in the American Music Awards and the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Paris.

Instagram | @gigihadid To be voted for this award by the @britishfashioncouncil, to stand in front of an audience full of my greatest inspirations, idols, and friends, and to be presented International Model of the Year by my angel @donatella_versace was one of the most humbling and emotional experiences of my life. To walk into that room and feel so at home is a great blessing and I have & will cherish every friend, memory, lesson and adventure this industry has given me, forever. I can't wait to continue to grow and create with all of you, and to see what the future holds !! Make a conscious effort every day to be someone people enjoy working with, and your possibilities will surprise you.
