Dear friends, fans and followers of World Gothic Models!

This year’s edition of contest MODEL OF THE YEAR was a huge fun for us all! We met adorable ladies, choosen during 2020 by the fans on our Instagram Profile.

Although the partial non-compliance with the rules, which led to non-counting of some votes, we got our Top 3 models from which we had the honor to chose the No.1 Winner!
