After a stellar start on the runways last February, Somali-American Halima Aden has shattered conventional beauty standards while winning the hearts of the fashion elite. The 19-year-old new face has made history being the first model to wear hijab for the covers of Allure Magazine, Vogue Arabia, and CR Fashion Book. Breaking barriers is nothing new to the Gen-Z teen who wore hijab and a burkini during the Miss Minnesota pageant before getting signed to a major agency. Diversity is beauty and with Aden’s stellar looks and charming smile she’s sure to go far!
