BY Harper's Bazaar Arabia / Jan 3 2016 / 21:24 PM

For these young women, we're predicting that 2016 will be their year. Whether hitting the big time in Hollywood or owning the catwalk, these bright young things have got one thing in common - a big future ahead for each and every one of them. Just remember one thing, you saw them here first

The Faces To Watch In 2016

Gal Gadot

This Israeli model and actor has been around for a few years, but in 2016 she will have a number of blockbusters out. Known for her role in the Fast & Furious series, she will play Wonder Woman in two upcoming Marvel films, and will star in three separate films alongside Kate Winslet, Ryan Reynolds, Isla Fisher and Jon Hamm.

Gemma Chan

While well-known in the UK for starring in a number of television programs, including Doctor Who and Humans, she will become a global name due to her role in Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, based off JK Rowling's best-selling novel.

Daisy Ridley

Rolling Stone called her a "total unknown" when she was announced as a lead in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but she won't be for much longer. Arguably the biggest film of 2015, it's sure to send her career into orbit.

Eve Hewson

Though she's the daughter of Bono, Eve Hewson is making a name for herself in her own right. Starring in Steven Speilberg's Cold War drama Bridge of Spies alongside Tom Hanks, Hewson's career will definitely be on the rise this year.

Lola Kirke

The little sister of Girls star Jemima Kirke, Lola is beginning to move in on her sister's stardom. With a supporting role in Gone Girl under her belt and indie favourite Mistress America, this up-and-comer is destined for big things (and some sort of beauty contract, no?).

Kaia Gerber

Though you may only know of her as Cindy Crawford's daughter, you'll soon hear a lot more about her. Gerber will feature in a film this year and will continue her rise as a model, following in her mother's footsteps.

Teresa Palmer

Featuring in five large-scale Hollywood films this year, we expect to hear the Australian actress' name on everyone's lips.

Bel Powley

Making a name for herself in her breakout role starring alongside Alexander Skarsgard and Kristen Wiig in Diary of a Teenage Girl, Powley will become a much bigger name very soon as she features in a number of films this year.

Maika Monroe

She's a bona fide 'Scream Queen', but will enter into the doomsday film genre with her breakout role in Independence Day: Resurgence.

Ella Purnell

Though still a teenager, this young actor has been a feature in British films since 2010. Now, she will be in three upcoming films in 2016.

Riley Keogh

The eldest grandchild of Elvis Presley, Keogh definitely inherited the fame gene. Featuring in four films in 2015, including Mad Max: Fury Road, her rise is sure to continue.

Alma Jodorowsky

Both an actor and a model, this French beauty has it all. She recently landed the lead role in the film Kids in Love alongside Cara Delevigne, making her one to watch this year.

Jillian Hervey

Hervey is a rock legend in the making. One half of the New York-based band Lion Babe, she's also appeared in the film The Courage To Love. With her foot in the door of fame, we're sure to hear a lot more of her in the coming months.

Ruth Bell

No-one made an entrance on the catwalk in 2015 like Ruth Bell. With her blonde buzz cut and elfin features, this 19-year-old is the coolest British model right now. Already walking for Max Mara and Gucci, Bell's career will catapult in 2016.
