Writing for WWD, Kali Hays asks swimsuit issue editor M.J.Day the fundamental question: Is the Sports Ilustrated Swimsuit Issue Still Relevant? (Note that Conde Nast, WWD’s parent, is asking the same question.) The fact that Victoria’s Secret revenues and profits have plunged in recent years give the question sustenance . Victoria’s Secret fashion show viewership has also plunged, as an ultimate symbol of global ‘camp’ and perhaps even American decadence and decline on a planet fighting for its very existence.

BTW, Halima won the Miss Minnesota USA beauty pageant wearing a hijab.

In her latest groundbreaking event, Halima Aden is a rookie in the new Sports Illustrated 2019 Swimwear issue, staying true to her commitment to wear a hijab or glam headress in all her fashion shoots and in the case of swimwear, to don a burkini.

Harlow continues her win as another milestone for inclusivity. Some diseases remain relatively hidden from the general public. Vitiligo, a condition in which the pigment cells of the skin are destroyed in certain areas of the body is very visible. It’s generally believed by experts that vitiligo is an autoimmune condition in which the body's defense system mistakenly attacks and destroys the body’s pigment cells. The exact cause is unknown.

While the disease isn’t painful and doesn’t bring significant health consequences, itbrings countless emotional and psychological challenges as white patches spread larger across one’s body. For Winnie to bring her skin condition into the world of modeling prompts immeasurable compliments around her inner wisdom and self-confidence. Harlow also walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in November 2018 in another professional coup.
