New York Post - These beauty queens are taking Manhattan.
And they’re doing it from one Midtown address: After nabbing the Miss Universe crown in January, Iris Mittenaere — the former Miss France — left Paris to move into the organization-owned apartment with Miss USA, Kára McCullough.
“Ever since I was a young girl, I was dreaming about New York,” Mittenaere, 24, told The Post. “I had a picture in my room of the Flatiron Building. I was dreaming that maybe one day I’ll be able to see it, and now I live here! It’s so exciting.”
Since both beauties spent the earlier part of their reigns jetting across the country to fulfill their duties, they finally have some downtime this summer to explore the city — and they’re making the most of it.
“It’s been a blast living [together],” said the 25-year-old McCullough about her roomie.
Together they braved the turbulent Hudson River waters at our Fourth of July shoot, where they were photographed aboard the Hornblower Esprit in view of Lady Liberty.
“The Statue of Liberty is very special to me, especially since I am from France,” said Mittenaere of her home country’s iconic 1886 gift to the United States. “She is a symbol of new opportunity and embodies hope for all.”
