2017 was a breakout year for Misty Copeland at American Ballet Theater (ABT). The African American ballerina made her debut in ABT’s “Don Quixote,” “Giselle,” and “Whipped Cream,” a huge accomplishment for any ballerina.

On the heel of these historic debuts, Copeland is the new global spokesmodel for Estee Lauder’s fragrance ‘Modern Muse.’ Copeland will be featured in short film teaching young dancers in ballet class that accompanies the fragrance’s video, print and television campaign, asking the question, “What inspires you.”

“My two passions are dance and giving back, and I love passing on knowledge to the next generation,” she said in a statement in a recent article. “I also have a strong connection to the scents I wear when I perform. The Modern Muse campaign is the perfect way to see another side of my story.”

“Misty has challenged the status quo to achieve her dreams and inspired so many young women along the way,” said Stephane de La Faverie, Global Brand President, Estée Lauder, with the brand’s Style and Image Director Aerin Lauder adding: “Misty is the perfect representation of today’s modern muse.”

Zoe and YSL

Zoe Kravitz has a new job. She is the new global makeup ambassador for YSL Beautè. Kravitz first teamed up with YSL Beautè in 2016 starring a short film, “Beyond the Light,” that focused on her pre-stage makeup routine.

“YSL Beauté has always been one of my favorite brands,” said Kravitz in a statement. “Their ability to combine the chicest of styles with a raw edge has always been to me one of the best ways to express yourself through fashion and beauty. Nothing is forced, nothing is fake but everything is bold, strong and unafraid.”

2017 is turning out to be a triumphant year for Zoe Kravitz. Kravitz is a part of Tiffany & Co’s 2017 fall campaign and stars in the summer hit “Girls Trip.”
