Halima Aden Is an American Beauty on 'Allure's 2017 July Cover

She’s breaking down boundaries and shaking the beauty industry.

Halima Aden is Allure‘s 2017 July cover star, representing a strong shift in beauty standards. The 19-year-old old was born in a Kenyan refugee camp before emigrating to the states and eventually winning the Miss Minnesota USA pageant. She got her big break in Kanye West’s YEEZY Season 5 and broke the internet as the first hijabi to walk the label’s runway.

For her second magazine cover of the year, Aden sat down with Allure to share her path to success and hold a short masterclass on modeling for young Muslim girls. Peep her cover editorial above and read more about the rising star at Allure.
