She’s best known as a Victoria’s Secret Angel, but Karlie Kloss‘s modeling career reached new heights in 2014.

The face of L’Oréal Paris was named Model of the Year at the PEOPLE Magazine Awards on Thursday.

“Thank you very much. Great music is big part of a model’s work on the runway,” said Kloss, 22, as she accepted her award at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles and introduced Maroon 5.

Kloss has had a busy year. She’s modeled in campaigns for Nike, Jason Wu, H&M, Chanel, Nieman Marcus, Donna Karan, Warby Parker and more and has been a regular fixture in fashion magazines including Vogue, W and Elle.

The supermodel has also spent time hanging out with close friend Taylor Swift, and Kloss’s style influence on the singer has them almost looking like twins.
