Model Halima Aden reveals all about covering up

  • Aden is one of the world’s most in demand hijab-wearing models
  • Aden made history when she graced the cover of British Vogue earlier this year

CAIRO: Somali-American model Halima Aden shared her thoughts on beauty and representation during a recent interview with US magazine In Style.

Aden, one of the world’s most in demand hijab-wearing models, issued a message of self-love.

“You can be covered from head to toe and still be beautiful. There’s a beauty in what you say and how you carry yourself,” said the model, who walked in Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2018 Alta Moda show in New York on Sunday.

“A lot of girls fall into a trap of trying to look like someone else. Beauty is working with what you have.”

Aden made history when she graced the cover of British Vogue earlier this year as the first hijab-wearing cover star in its 102-year history.

Paramount announces Elton John biopic

NEW YORK: Paramount has agreed to fund and distribute “Rocketman,” a biopic about British entertainer Elton John, a spokesman for the US studio said on Thursday.
The film will star Taron Egerton (“Kingsman,” “Eddie the Eagle“), who will sing the songs featured in the film, the spokesman said.
And it will be directed by Dexter Fletcher, who also helmed a biopic about another British singer — Freddie Mercury of the group Queen.
Filming is scheduled to begin this summer.
John, who in the 1980s became one of the first openly gay major celebrities, has announced that he plans to “go out with a bang” with a massive final global tour that will open on September 8 and last through 2021.
