Halima Aden on her Allure cover: “I’m here to bust stereotypes of Muslim women.”


Our favourite model and model of the moment Halima Aden has become the first ever hijab-wearing model to grace the cover of American women’s beauty magazine, Allure. The 19-year-old model has been in the limelight for quite a while with her outstanding achievements as a muslim woman of colour. She first achieved her groundbreaking status when she became the first contestant in the Miss Minnesota pageant to compete in a hijab and burkini.

Since then, she’s gone on to walk in the Yeezy season five show at New York Fashion Week, starred in Carine Roitfield’s CR Fashionbook walked in Milan fashion week and made history as the first hijab-wearing woman on the cover of Vogue.

Halima flaunts Nike’s new performance hijab on the cover of Allure’s July issue, Aden’s image is accompanied by the words, “This is American Beauty” – a defiant slogan that champions the young model’s desire to defy beauty boundaries in fashion once and for all.
