With her doe-brown eyes and enviable fringe, we couldn't help but fall in love with Edie Campbell when she first hit the runway. Now it seems the rest of the fashion world have fallen head over heels for her too, as she topped off her already fantastic 2013 by being crowned Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards this evening. She takes the reigns from last year's winner Cara Delevingne who's had an equally exciting year on and off the catwalk.

Edie was presented the award tonight by fashion photographer Tim Walker, who has recently shot her for the December issue of US Vogue. She gave an eccentric speech saying that she found the past year inspiring, but that if she had to thank one person it would be her best friend, her pony Dolly.

This year the 23-year-old, who alongside Cara and Jourdan Dunn is a Burberry veteran, cracked the modelling mainstream and dominated the catwalks. She strutted her stuff for Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs during New York Fashion Week in September and was the opening model for Victoria Beckham's catwalk show. We've seen her all over the runways from London to Paris, walking for the likes of Burberry, Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton.

She's also landed some major international campaigns for brands including Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs and Lanvin. Find out more about her career so far here.

When she's not strutting down the catwalks, the supermodel is a keen horse rider and once won the Celebrity Ladies Race at Glorious Goodwood. She's also more of a brainbox than a party girl, holding a first-class degree in History of Art from the Courtauld Institute, which she managed to fit in studying for around shooting major magazine covers and campaigns with Mario Testino. We can't wait to see more of Edie in 2014!
