Miss Universe 2016 winner Iris Mittenaere appeared in several events at the recently concluded New York Fashion Week. Aside from headlining a designer show, she attended the events in full glamour as she carried the brand of her crown.

Each year, the Miss Universe Organization sends its winners to New York Fashion Week to attend galas and represent the pageant. Since the organization is partnered with designer brand Sherri Hill, the titleholders also get the chance to walk in their annual fashion show.

New York Fashion Week ran from September 7 to September 13.

The runway events showcased the new collection for Spring/Summer 2018 and featured creations from younger designers.

Miss Universe Iris Mittenaere, who hails from France, attended the kick-off party of the fashion week wearing a simple yet elegant ensemble which was revealed on the website of the pageant . Social media photos showed her wearing a silk polo overlay on top of a black dress with a revealing neckline. She paired this with a silk dark blue pair of pants and a necklace.

She was also spotted on her way to one of the fashion shows wearing a lovely little dress paired with an oversized cardigan.
