Halima Aden has had a clause written into her contract which states she never has to remove her hijab.
The Somali-American model - who was born in a refugee camp in Kenya - has had a clause written into her contract with IGM models which means she is never required to remove her veil which covers her hair and chest in keeping with her Muslim religious beliefs.
In an interview with CBS News, the trailblazing catwalk star said: "When I got that opportunity to sign with IMG Models, I made sure I wasn't conforming ... I did it on my own terms."
Halima has made history by being the first woman to wear a burkini in the Miss Minnesota USA beauty pageant, getting to the semi-final, and soon after became the first hijab-wearing model to be signed with IMG Models.
She then became the first hijab wearing model to feature on the cover of Vogue Arabia and also landed an Allure cover in 2017.
