Nevertheless, the style of the women who wear hijab is different all over the planet. That is where photographer Langston Hues comes in...

This photographer, from Detroit, Michigan, deferred admission to medical school and has taken this year to travel the world and capture the different styles of Muslim women for his upcoming book "Modest Street Fashion."

The book focuses on different fashion bloggers who consider themselves "hijabistas" or "turbanistas." The photographs in the book are taken on streets of cities all around the world.
