All in Fashion & Style

Just in time for the end of 2018, Forbes released it’s annual list of the highest-paid fashion models. Leading the pack by a large margin is Kendall Jenner, who raked in $22.5 million between June 2017 and June 2018. Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevigne, Gigi Hadid, and other familiar names follow suit, all with earnings of $8 million and above. While no one is shaming this group of women for having great success over the past several months, the list has created some controversy over the continued lack of diversity in the fashion industry.

If you follow runway fashion, chances are you’ve heard of Halima Aden. At 21 years old, Aden is making history as the first Muslim woman to wear hijab in fashion shows. Born in a Kenyan refugee camp after her family escaped the Somali civil war, Aden arrived in the States speaking no English and feeling self-conscious of her outsider status. Years later, she’s catapulted from high school homecoming queen to a contract with IMG.
