The peppy, the happy, the quirky, the unique, Halima Aden has become the first woman wearing a hijab to feature on a magazine cover, and that too, Vogue Arabia. Somali-American model Halima Aden graces the June issue of the magazine, which has been available in print only since the last three months. Only at 19 years of age, Halima has experienced this inexplicable surreal feeling of endorsing the Vogue cover.
Apart from the Hijab, what is even more striking are the braces that the model sports, confidently. We love this cover for celebrating identity and giving a very contemporary and connecting touch to the otherwise star-studded covers. It is as natural as any of us! Her words in her celebrating Instagram video, "Every little girl deserves to see a role model that’s dressed like her, resembles her, or even has the same characteristics as her. I think beauty is for everyone and I think everyone can look beautiful. You just have to be confident", make us admire and applaud her even more.
