Model Crush Monday – Halima Aden


Somali-American model, Halima Aden was easily one of the most talked about models from the Fall 2017 shows.

The 19-year-old who was born in a refugee camp in Kenya came to limelight when she competed for Miss Minnesota wearing a burkini (a special type of swimsuit that covers the whole body) and hijab.

Since then, she has gone on to become the first hijab-wearing model to be signed to a major modeling agency, IMG, has been featured in CR Fashion Book and has walked the runway for major brands including Yeezy, Alberta Ferreti and Max Mara.

Halima Aden is currently a freshman at St Cloud University. For challenging stereotypes and breaking new grounds, Halima Aden is our model crush this Monday.

See some of our favorites snapshots of the model.
