For Malaysian makeup artist Saraswati, a hijab is no barrier to dressing like a Disney princess.


In fact, it's the most critical part of her look.


The Disney fan -- who goes by Queen of Luna on Instagram -- uses her traditional Muslim headwear to become all sorts of Disney characters that look so authentic, they'll make you do a double take:

"Needed to attach the headband on hijab," Saraswati wrote on a post of her "Alice in Wonderland" look. "I used to dress up as Alice almost everyday when I was little."

Her headwear has served as an Elsa braid, a Belle updo and even a landing pad for Ariel's fork.


She's done Jafar and The Red Queen, too:

It's about time the mainstream fashion world started recognizing the hijab's power in creating a beautiful style statement. Dolce & Gabbana started selling a line of hijabs and abayas earlier this year, and Uniqlo is poised to make a move in the hijab market, too.

With the help of more bold moves like Saraswati's, we can't wait to watch hijabs rise to the top of best-dressed lists in every country.
