MISTY COPELAND: ESTÉE LAUDER’S MODERN MUSE!

Monday, July 31st, 2017
Misty Copeland, 34, has been a trailblazer her entire life.  As American Ballet Theatre’s first African American Principal Dancer, she broke racial barriers.  By reaching only 5’2″ and growing to be “busty with an athletic build,” she broke physical stereotypes, and on Monday, the Égal Dance founder was named brand ambassador for Estée Lauder’s Modern Muse fragrance.  Sharing on Instagram, Copeland shared a video, “I’m so excited to announce that I’m the newest @EsteeLauderspokesmodel for #ModernMuse! See how I make it part of my performance routine. #BeAnInspiration #EsteeAmbassador
Speaking exclusively with Glamour, Copeland shared a letter she wrote her 13-year-old self on the topic of beauty.  “You’ll feel strongest, and most beautiful, on stage. And you will feel most confident when you are natural and just yourself. Remember this feeling.  One day, you’ll even be in a beauty campaign—wild, right? And why that’s so important is because it matters that women and girls see themselves represented in every hue and every shape, with different careers and different paths. You’re going to do that for people.”

UA I willUNDER ARMOUR UNVEILS ITS LATEST CAMPAIGN

With the words, “I will be praised, I will be judged, I will not be distracted,” former Victoria’s Secret model, Gisele Bündchen, has traded in her angel wings and lacy lingerie for a series of high-impact sports bras from Under Armour.  Her rock-hard abs are accompanied by those belonging to ballerina Misty Copeland, surfer Brianna Cope, soccer player Kelley O’Hara, and skier Lindsey Vonn. The campaign focuses on obstacles each figure has encountered, and how they came out on top.  “Content from the campaign depicts each of these women and their declarations in overcoming doubt and setbacks related to their womanhood,” the company explained, adding, “The statements also gives voice to what women everywhere want and need from their sports bras, a perspective that has often gone unheard.”
