The 39-year-old supermodel has already been recognised as model of the year at the awards in 2006 and 2009, and won the first British Fashion Award, which is decided by public vote.

Other potential winners of this this year's prizes, which will be awarded at the London Coliseum, include Victoria Beckham, Marc Jacobs, Prada and rising star Cara Delevingne.
