This stunning editorial produced by Harper's Bazaar US captures Principal Ballerina Misty Copeland recreating several works of art by Impressionist painter Edgar Degas. The series features Copeland posing in couture attire from brands like Valentino, Carolina Herrera, Alexander McQueen and many more. Art works by Degas that are replicated in the series include his statue 'Little Dancer Aged Fourteen' and paintings such as 'Dancer,' while the series was photographed by Ken Browar and Deborah Ory.

Misty Copeland is currently a Principal Ballerina with the American Ballet Theater and has high-profile endorsements from brands including Under Armour and Seiko. When she was promoted to principal ballerina in June 2015, Copeland became the first African American woman to receive the honor in the American Ballet Theater's 75-year history.
