    Overall I think she is presenting herself decently and is seeming to adhere to Islamic dress code – of course the makeup and tightness of jeans is questionable. I avoid tight fiiting clothes (although many of the maxidresses I wear are pulled in at the waist ..) but wear makeup so I cannot jusge the model poorly. Inshallah we all become more modest in many ways…
