SPORTS Illustrated's annual swimsuit issue, best known for its racy covers of scantily clad bikini models, will feature for the first time and Muslim model wearing a hijab and burkini, the magazine said Monday (April 29).

Somali-American model Halima Aden's rookie spread will be set in Kenya, where she was born in a refugee camp and lived until the age of seven.

"Growing up in the States, I don't really felt because I never flip through a magazine and see a girl who was wearing a hijab," Aden said in a video tweeted by the magazine.

Sports Illustrated also posted a picture of her posing lying down in shallow water, wearing a turquoise hijab, a long blue earrings and a deep blue burkini – a full length swimsuit favorite by some Muslim women.

Halima, 21, made headlines at age 19 when she was the first woman to wear and hijab in Miss Minnesota USA Pageant, where she made the semi-finals in 2016.

She has previously featured on the cover of British Vogue and walked on the New York Fashion Week runway. – AFP / Relaxnews
