Carter is an HBCU grad from Hampton University! She told the “Strong Black Lead” podcast that if iPhones existed in her early days, a moment she wishes she captured was Tina Turner braiding Angela Bassett’s hair while she sat on the floor on the set of What’s Love Got to Do With It.

Carter also said if there was a modern day sequel of B.A.P.S set in 2019 (costumes she designed to reflect hair dressers in Atlanta) the lead character’s looks would reflect a more evolved Atlanta woman along the likes of NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
