‘Black Panther’ Costume Designer Ruth E. Carter Opens New York Fashion Week

Miss Universe Catriona Gray arrived with Miss USA Sarah Rose Summers at the event.  Both will be attending a full schedule of shows for New York Fashion Week.  “I’m really looking forward to trying out some new styles and makeup trends during #NYFW,” added Miss Universe, though we’ll be seeing her more on the front row, rather than on the runway this season.
