Supermodel Halima Aden is coverstar for Essence Magazine latest issue..

Halima is stunning in absolutely colourful images for her  Essence Magazine overshoot.

In 2017, both Vogue and Cosmopolitan anointed Aden a breakout star. 

That same year Rihanna tapped her to appear in Fenty Beauty’s debut video. 

But it’s more than Aden’s on-camera presence that has won her a legion of fans. At 22, the stunner is helping to disrupt conventional beauty standards as one of the first hijab-wearing models to rise to international fame. And she’s using her platform to change the world.

Aden, who was born in a Kenyan refugee camp, relocated to the United States when she was 7; her family eventually settled in St. Cloud, Minnesota. She likes to say that her life is filled with “firsts”—the first Muslim homecoming queen at her high school; the first Somali student senator at her college; and the first hijab-wearing woman to be the face of numerous fashion magazine covers, including Allure and British Vogue.

 “It’s important for me to be visible and to do whatever I can to let girls know that they don’t have to change who they are,” she says. “I want them to know the world will meet them exactly where they stand.”
