American Ballet Theater’s Misty Copeland

We all love the look of a ballerina, and the beautiful Misty Copeland is no exception. When we interviewed Copeland, she shared that she eats clean, sees her body as her instrument (therefore treats it well), has whole wheat pasta with shrimp twenty-four hours before a performance and sees every new day as a chance to be better. Copeland’s style icon is Nicole Richie, and she doesn’t deny herself a glass of wine post-show. While we learned plenty about Copeland in her interview, we wanted to share the outtakes from the shoot because – well – they’re gorgeous.
