Rihanna previews Fenty Beauty collection

Your fall beauty haul is about to get a major upgrade, thanks to Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty line.

According to Glamour, while the highly-secretive line will finally make its debut on Friday, Sept. 8, the “Wild Thoughts” singer released three campaign teasers late last week, and it is already shaping up to be a collection worth splurging on.

HelloGiggles reports that the line likely consists of “a wide array of eyeshadows, lip products, and highlighters,” which will surely be a welcome addition to any makeup bag this fall. But beyond the technicalities of what products are included in the line, the campaign is also drawing attention for its inclusive representations of beauty. One of the first ads for the line features models such as Halima Aden, Slick Woods, Camila Costa and Paloma Elsesser, says Glamour, all of whom contribute to the overall diversity of the project.

One model included in the project, Leomie Anderson, seemed to have summed up the motto of Fenty Beauty perfectly when she wrote on Instagram that is is “the beauty brand for girls who know who the f-ck they are and aren’t afraid to show it.”

Ready for some Rihanna in your life? Be sure to check out Sephora on Sept. 8 for a chance at some of these Fenty products.


AE crafts denim hijabs

Clothier American Eagle is taking their signature denim and transforming it into a style that is accessible to all.

According to Her Campus, AE has just released a denim hijab, modeled by Muslim model Halima Aden. Initially announced with photos of the model in the denim hijab, Teen Vogue reports that shoppers were thrilled when they later found out that the style was for sale.

The denim hijab is currently available for $19.95 on AE’s website — also making it accessible to shoppers of all budgets — and comes in a medium, chambray-style wash.

With an all-American brand making style more inclusive, perhaps AE’s decision to create the denim hijab was best summed up by Fashionista: “What could be more American than the freedom to worship — and dress — according to your convictions?”

Aden poses for Allure

Halima Aden is only 19 years old, but that doesn’t mean she can’t slay like the big-time models. Judging by her new cover for Allure magazine, Aden did just fine — and even made history in the process.

According to HuffPost, after “becoming the first Miss Minnesota contestant to compete in a hijab and burkini in November 2016,” Aden earned another first, this time becoming the first cover star for Allure to wear a hijab.

But this isn’t the only history the young model has made thus far: HuffPost reports that Aden “became Vogue’s first hijab-wearing model in June and walked the Yeezy show in February,” only just beginning to cement her place in the fore of the American beauty and fashion industries.

Posing in a Nike hijab and a red, white and blue hoodie, Aden’s gorgeous cover photo for Allure is accompanied by the headline “This Is American Beauty.” HuffPost explains that while the magazine intend to make a political statement with Aden’s photos, the spread comes at a time when the public forum is filled with talk of travel bans and hate crimes directed toward Muslims.

For Aden herself, HuffPost says the model shared with Allure that wearing the hijab shields her from negative comments about her looks.

“‘I have much more to offer than my physical appearance, and a hijab protects me against ‘You’re too skinny,’ ‘You’re too thick,’ ‘Look at her hips,’ ‘Look at her thigh gap.'”
