I think she’s beautiful but I wish she was more expressive

Between her distinctively East African name and face, I wondered if the covered hair is a religious requirement she (along with stylists, etc) has to work around. She's indeed Somali, and based on her Insta, it seems like that's the case.

That's a substantial artistic constraint, and I'm rooting for her 100%. (I absolutely hate diversity for diversity's sake, but when it comes with legit qualifications--here, beauty and versatility--I'm all for it.)

Then


and now




she looks a bit like a deer caught in headlights, almost like she's scared

She's just has a rather doe-like face IMO. While she could work on the expressiveness some, she's plenty capable of looking cool rather than alarmed.

In this article: https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/i-d...3k3q9j/ugbad-a-new-face-a-new-story-a-new-era
she explains her stance surrounding the hijab and her religious beliefs. I think it’s wonderful that she’s staying true to her beliefs while overcoming long established prejudice and barriers. In my opinion, as long as she’s respecting the industry’s standards by maintaining her stunning figure I think that stylists will be able to work around the hijab; it certainly hasn’t held her back so far and actually offers an opportunity for creativity in design

Ugbad's cover for Vogue Italia

I think her face is beautiful and I think her cover is definitely one of the better ones (*cough* Kaia *cough*)
