Barrier-busting dancer Misty Copeland tied the knot on Sunday, and we couldn't be happier for the American Ballet Theater's first African-American principal dancer. According to multiple reports, Misty wed longtime beau Olu Evans in Laguna Beach, and we're sure the setting—and the Inbal Dror gown—were to die for. (Also, we have a hunch the dance floor was hoppin.') In celebration of the 33-year-old ballerina and her love, here's a look back at some of her looks we love.
For the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards in New York last year, the dancer wore a netted, paisley dress by Australian designer Zimmermann. The dancer has said that the late, great Prince—with whom she toured—influenced her style. "When you're with me, you're a rock star—not a ballerina," the Purple One told her. And she certainly did rock this look.
For the American Ballet Theater's 7th anniversary gala, Misty wore an elegant but edgy look from Escada. Her bling was by Dannijo.
In February, Misty showed her runway strut in The American Heart Association's "Go Red for Women" fashion show, presented by Macy's. David Meister designed the red-hot look. Each celebrity model in the show had a mission statement for walking; Misty's was: "I go red to encourage women to take care of their bodies."
In May, Misty was one of the many style icons at the Met Gala, wearing a champagne satin gown by Jason Wu. Because she wears big, princess-y gowns for a living, Misty has said that her dancer-off-duty look leans toward sleeker styles.
She accessorized her Met Gala look with some major sparkles from Tiffany & Co.
Misty stepped out to the Music Center's Summer Soiree last month in a bold, black-and-white look. The style showcased her enviable, muscular arms, and her minimal makeup put her clean, dewy skin on display. One of Misty's main style secrets? She tailors every piece to the max. "I think I get almost every piece of clothing that I buy altered and taken in just to fit me exactly the way it should," she once told Vanity Fair. We can't wait to see Misty's wedding dress—but for now, we're headed to the gym to work on our arms.
