When we heard that PEOPLE Magazine was hosting a Countdown to the World's Most Beautiful Women with 10 days of natural beauties, we had a feeling one of our gorgeous SI Swimsuit models would be making the list. And lo and behold, Gigi Hadid has made the cut on the final day!

Our resident blonde bombshell, Gigi has been making major splashes in both the beauty and fashion industries this year. Not only was she named as the face of Maybelline, but she's also a returning GUESS girl, a Seafolly brand ambassador, a VS Pink rep, a star in Mario Testino's Towel Series, and one half of one of America's favorite young couples right now. Talk about having a lot going on! 

Set to appear in PEOPLE's spread on the World's Most Beautiful Women, Gigi looks flawless on the beach with natural waves and minimal makeup. And as the magazine points out, Gigi "may be fashion's latest 'it' girl, but the model has staying power."

Congrats, Gigi, on an honor we already knew you were without-a-doubt worthy of!
