Take Stock: Halima, Ana Barbosa and more of the models making the biggest moves

Halima Aden: She just made history bearing the first-ever burkini featured in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, an issue themed “shattering perceptions”, adding to the growing list of perception shattering successes for the Hijabi model. Plus, launching her own line of turbans and shawls in collaboration with the brand Modanisa makes a huge week for Halima, and Muslim girls!

Ugbad : Let’s just say a winking i-D cover is something all models dream of having––it just screams cool (and potential coin), so Ugbad likely won’t be disappointed with life after cover.

Ruth Bell: A revealing interview in Phillip Picardi’s Out Magazine gave a glimpse into the rise of Ruth, who by the way just closed Dior’s Resort show. The well-timed press might just jog fashion’s awfully short memory as to why she’s one of its favored faces.

Ana Barbosa: As it stands, Ana’s work right now is all show––and we mean that literally. Her latest walk, a precious opening spot for Dior’s Marrakech backdropped Resort 2019 show, just proves she’s as high fashion as they come.

Paulina Porizkova: Paulina is no stranger to Sports Illustrated Swimsuit making her first appearances in the magazine in the 80s and she was even featured in its “legends” shoot in 2014. At age 54, the ever-beautiful Porizkova has us reppin’ #sexyhasnoagelimit.

Dazed100’s 18 models: Okay, so this isn’t one individual, but Dazed’s annual selection of 100 year-defining people includes a cluster of models who are helping to break the mold. This year it features the likes of Finn Buchanan, Aweng Chuol, Nathan Westling, Jill Kortleve, Tess McMillan and a whole bunch more!
