Costume Designer: Ruth Carter

There is a huge part of me that’s embarrassed to admit that I just found out who Ruth Carter is — one of the best costume designers on Earth. Having started out Spike Lee in his first film (School Daze, 1988) and over 10 more, including Malcom X (1992). , this woman has been a trailblazer in her field and an absolute advocate for Black culture — but really any culture. Ruth has been hired for over 40 films by the likes of Steven Spielberg for Amistad (1997), by Ava DuVerney for Selma (2014) and Ryan Coogler for Black Panther (2018). Ruth is the first person called when it comes to films that are supposed to be authentic, historically heavy and (more often than not), culturally significant.

I was actually glad to hear the tear-jerking thank you’s on stage instead of everything being a joke 🤷🏽‍♀️
