Sports Illustrated has a new swimsuit issue but the cover has people talking as it breaks far from tradition.

It has been announced that the cover will feature Somali-American model Halima Aden, nothing out of place there, but that she will be modeling a “burkini” instead of the typical “bikini.”

Sports Illustrated is proving that a girl that’s wearing a bikini could be right alongside a girl that’s wearing a burkini. And as women we can come alongside each other and be each other’s biggest cheerleaders,” the model shared with ABC News.

“Young girls who wear a hijab should have women they look up to in any and every industry,” she shared separately with BBC.

Aden also added, “The response has been incredible and I’m so honored that Sports Illustrated has taken the step to showcase the beauty that modestly dressed women possess.”

  1. Each to their own. I can’t say the celebrity look of practically nothing on the beaches is attractive so go for it.
