Model Halima Aden graces the newest VOGUE Arabia cover and she kills it. More inside…
Remember Halima Aden?
She’s the 19-year-old Somali-American, who is signed with IMG Models, who made waves in the pageant world when she competed in the Miss Minnesota USA competition wearing a traditional hijab in November 2016. She rocked a burkini for the swimsuit round, making history as the first woman in the pageant world to do so.
The IMG model also walked in Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 5 fashion show and she booked the cover of CR Fashion Book. And her glow up continues.
Now, she’s making her VOGUE debut and still making history.
Halima graces the cover of VOGUE Arabia’s June 2017 issue and she totally slays. The gorgeous YBF model rocks a hijab on the cover and she’s the first model to do so!
Check out a behind-the-scenes look at her photoshoot below where she talks about the importance of young girls seeing people like them in the media:
