"Vogue Arabia had an opportunity to allow Muslim hijabi women to share their own experiences with the hijab," said Muslim writer Eeman Abbasi. "Instead, they contributed to the co-opting of the hijab and the hijabi experience, stripping both of their religious significances and reducing them into political fashion statements."
Others pointed out the double standard applied to hijabs used in fashion versus those worn on the street.
So Gigi Hadid wears a hijab, she gets praised because "fashion", but real Muslim women who wear a hijab are shamed, attacked, and killed? K. pic.twitter.com/bosA1uyQK8
Last year, Hadid and her sister sported dreadlock wigs for a Marc Jacobs runway show — and wore them out afterward. The year before, she donned an afro wig for the cover of Vogue Italia. In both instances, commenters accused her of appropriating Black culture.
Do you think Hadid is supporting Muslim women or harming them? Let us know in the comments below.
