Last year, 19-year-old Halima Aden made waves as the first Hijab-wearing contestant to participate in the Miss USA competition. The Minnesota native obliterated stereotypes during the pageant, which took place in Nov. 2016. For the swimsuit competition she came out in a burkini, because she’s a badass.
The good juju kept on pouring in for Aden because she was also one of the models chosen for the enigmatic Yeezy Season 5 fashion show, which took place during New York Fashion Week.
The fashion show was a hit, with fashion mavens Anna Wintour and Carine Roitfeld, of CR Fashion Book, in attendance, sitting next to Kim Kardashian West and Lala Anthony, respectively.
Expect to see Aden in the March issue of CR Fashion Book.
This girl is killing the fashion game, and single-handedly paving the way for Hijab-wearing girls in fashion.
