It's a big day for representation in mainstream fashion. Models Halima Aden, Ikram Abdi Omar, and Amina Adan recently joined forces to grace the cover of Vogue Arabia.
On Instagram, the magazine said that the April issue "celebrates modest fashion" and is "dedicated to female empowerment." Vogue Arabia has been scrutinized for its editorial decisions in the past, including the time it portrayed Rihanna as an Egyptian queen.
This is the first cover for Omar and Adan. It's Aden’s second cover — she was previously a cover star for Vogue Arabia's June 2017 issue. "To think that just three years ago there was not a single Hijabi model and now fast-forward to the first Vogue Hijabi group cover," Aden wrote on her Insta.
