Halima Aden has become a darling of the fashion world and her notoriety has exploded after her appearance in Kanye West‘s brief Yeezy Season 5 showing at New York Fashion Week. Aden made headlines after she appeared in the Miss Minnesota beauty pageant in traditional Muslim garb and a burkini, and there many more layers to the Land of 10,000 Lakes native.
Last November, Aden turned heads after she entered the Miss Minnesota competition and became the first contestant to wear the innovative burkini. The Somali-American model hoped to inspire other Muslim girls, especially those from her native homeland. And with her showing in a full-length fur coat at Yeezy Season in a hijab, there will certainly be more to come.
