First Model Wearing A Hijab On Teen Vogue Cover

Somali-American model, Halima Aden, has become the first model to wear a hijab on the cover of Teen Vogue, for the July 2018 digital issue. The 20 year-old is already a high-profile model who has been featured on the covers of British Vogue, Allure and Glamour.

Aden was also the first hijabi model to sign with agency IMG, walk the runways of New York and Milan, and compete in the Miss Minnesota pageant –as the Muslim model continues to break barriers and stereotypes.
