We’re here for any and everything Misty Copeland. She the first African American principal dancer of the American Ballet Theater and has an incredibly inspiring story as someone who took a non-traditional route to success. (She didn’t get into ballet until she was 13!) If you haven’t already, check out her biography A Ballerina’s Tale — it’s on Netflix.
Today, Misty announced she’s the newest face of Estée Lauder and released an exclusive letter to herself via Glamour Magazine. In the heartfelt letter, she tells her 13-year-old self (and fans) why she feels this moment is so important.
Misty’s first project as the newly appointed brand ambassador is Estée Lauder’s Modern Muse perfume ($68-$120). (If you’re curious about the floral scent, it has “notes of jasmine, mandarin, patchouli, amber wood, and soft musk.”)
Misty posted a magazine-worthy Instagram pic of her applying the scent, noting, “I always apply fragrance before I step onto the stage.”
We’re sincerely hoping this is only the beginning of Misty x Estée Lauder. We’d love to see the two join forces on skin care designed for athletes. Sweat-proof everything in ballerina pink? Yes, please.
