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.
"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.
