Renowned American costume designer Ruth E Carter has made history again by winning the Best Costume Design award at the 95th Annual Academy Awards (Oscars), held in Hollywood, California, on March 12, 2023. Carter, who won her second Oscar, was recognised for her work on the highly anticipated sequel to Marvel's ‘Black Panther,’ titled ‘Wakanda Forever.’

She was the first Black person to win the Oscar for Best Costume Design in 2019 for her work on the original ‘Black Panther’ film. Also, she is the first black woman to win two oscars.

Carter, in her 30-year plus film career, has over 40 films to her credit and is widely regarded as having mastered the look of multiple periods and genres in envisioning the clothing and overall appearance of a character or performer.

Carter was also previously nominated two times for the Academy Award for Best Costume Design, for her work on Spike Lee's biographical film ‘Malcolm X’ (1992) and Steven Spielberg's historical drama film ‘Amistad’ (1997).

Wakanda Forever is a 2022 superhero film, based on the Marvel Comics superhero Black Panther. The film is produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
