Photos: Muslim girl makes history as the first contestant to wear full hijab attire for US beauty pageant

A teenager has shaken up the beauty industry as she made history to become the first fully-covered Muslim contestant in the Miss Minnesota USA competition. Halima Aden proudly competed in the beauty pageant wearing a hijab and a burkini for the swimsuit round.


The 19-year-old, who made it through to the semifinals, said she wanted to use the contest as an opportunity to change misconceptions about Islam.
