On Instagram, the brand called Ms Aden's journey from a Somali refugee to one of the fashion industry's most sought-after models "inspiring." Ms Aden made headlines last year after she competed in the Miss Minnesota USA pageant in a burkini and hijab.
She has since walked the runway for Kanye West's Yeezy in New York and Max Mara and Alberta Ferretti in Milan, and been on the cover of a series of fashion magazines.
"Thank you @americaneagle for encouraging young America to follow their passions, express their individuality, and pursue their unique paths," Ms Aden wrote on Instagram.
