If you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere!

That's how the Frank Sinatra song goes and it seems Pearl Thusi is right on track on that front!

Not just anyone can attend New York Fashion Week; it's an invitation only event.

And not only was the Quantico actress invited - she was in the front row among the who's who of the fashion world.

Pearl donned chic outfits from designers Vivienne Hu, Lan Yu and Nicole Miller for each of their events.

"We don't go unless we're front row," she quipped at the Lan Hu show.

She also enjoyed a private dinner with some of the designers.

The 28-year-old, who's been hailed as "someone to watch" by America's Essence Magazine, also enjoyed quality time in the Big Apple with Basetsana Kumalo.

The businesswoman and Peal go way back: The former Miss SA was her mentor and even gave Pearl her first laptop.

"I remember meeting her as a 19-year-old," Bassie (42) wrote on Instagram with the pic she posted. "Today she's based in New York and starring in #Quantico and doing so much more with her life..Mad love for you always baby girl."
