You’ve heard her name and you definitely recognize her face. Since launching her modeling career seven years ago, Taylor Hill has skyrocketed to one of the top models in the business. But she often seems to play second fiddle to many of her famous friends. Well, not anymore! It’s time for this girl to shine. We have a feeling 2017 is going to be the year of Taylor, and here’s why:

  1. She’s launching a capsule collection with Joe’s Jeans.

Every it-girl needs their own fashion collaboration and now Hill has her own! The 21-year-old co-designed the 20-piece collection, which debuted earlier this year.

  1. She’s walked for over three-dozen designers as of this year.

Hill is no newb to the runway. As of Fashion Week 2017, she’s walked for almost every famous designer under the sun, including Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, DKNY, Versace, Fendi and more.

  1. She’s appeared in ads for all your favorite brands.

Shopped at Topshop, H&M, or Forever21? You’ve definitely seen Hill featured in the brands’ awesome campaigns.

  1. She’s the new face of David Yurman.

Hill is movin’ on up! Though she’s appeared in a ton of ads (see above), her spring 2017 campaign for David Yurman may just be her biggest score yet.

  1. She’s grown to nearly 8 million followers on Instagram.

Back in 2015, she was named social media’s Model of the Year and since then she’s done nothing except live up to that name. The Victoria’s Secret Angel can easily get over 500k likes per post with her ever-growing fan base. Need some context? That’s more than Serena Williams, Ashley Graham, or Gina Rodriguez has a piece. (Not that it’s a competition).
