Just last week, IMG Models announced that Halima Aaden is signed to its roster. The hijab-wearing, Muslim model previously participated in Miss Minnesota, and is now set to take over the world of fashion. The Somali-American stunner made headlines when she appeared at the Yeezy Season 5 runway show during New York Fashion Week. Less than a week later, she also landed her first major cover, appearing on CR Fashion Book’s 10th issue.

“Halima is breaking boundaries of beauty and perception by being herself,” CR Fashion Book’s Carine Roitfeld says. “I find this incredibly inspiring, and I know she will be an icon. In CR Issue 10, she represents the diversity of Paris, where a mix of global cultures converge.”
