Misty Copeland, who became the first African-American woman to be named a principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre last year, has already established herself as a legend.

Now the 33-year-old is re-creating the beauty of ballet in another art form. The March issue of Harper's Bazaar magazine will feature the ballerina in photos reminiscent of works of 19th century French artist Edgar Degas.   

In high-end fashions by designers like Oscar de la Renta and Alexander McQueen, Copeland posed to capture scenes from Degas' famous portraits and sculptures like "Little Dancer Aged Fourteen," "The Star" and "Green Dancer."

"I definitely feel like I can see myself in that sculpture—she just seems content but also reserved," Copeland told Harper's Bazaar about posing for "Little Dancer." "I was really shy and introverted at that age. I don't even have an image in my head of what I remember a ballerina being or existing before I took a ballet class. Ballet was just the one thing that brought me to life."

The photo shoot celebrates "Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty," an exhibition that will debut at the New York Museum of Modern Art in March.

Seattle company designs invisible art revealed in rain

Trending on Facebook

More popular and trending stories

A Seattle startup said it is hoping to make rainy days a little brighter for everyone after designing a product that makes rain-activated art on sidewalks and other surfaces.

The art is made with a stencil and a superhydrophobic coating spray that keeps water from soaking into surfaces, creating different shades of color.

The product can be used on absorbent surfaces, including concrete, wood, stone, cardboard and fabric, and is invisible on a dry and sunny day.

The idea came from Peregrine Church, who considers himself part artist, part engineer and part inventor.

Last April, he and his business partner made a video for a Kickstarter campaign and it went viral.

The product is called Rainworks, and with 690 backers and $50,000 from the Kickstarter campaign, they've been filling numerous orders via their website

For $29, customers get a bottle of “invisible spray” that covers roughly 15 square feet, a stencil to make their own Rainwork and video instructions.

“My priority isn't making money. My priority is helping people make the world a better place. So once we're off the ground and flying, it'll be a lot of fun,” said Church.

The designs generally last about four to five weeks, depending on conditions. Since it’s temporary, it’s not considered graffiti in public areas.      

Rainworks is not only making art around the city, but is also putting messages and inspirational words in public areas, such as bus stops and parks.

The company is also creating online maps of Rainworks designs the company and others have done so that people can visit and see the designs.

Misty Copeland named ABT's first-ever black principal dancer

Much beloved dancer and African American Misty Copeland has made history. The petite 32-year-old was named principal dancer for American Ballet Theatre, the first-ever in the company’s 75-year history.

Copeland’s promotion – after 14 years at the company – comes at a time when the woman’s growing celebrity and popularity brought her fame beyond ballet circles, the New York Times reported.

Copeland faced many obstacles in her climb to the top of the artistic world. She suffered through a high-profile custody fight with her mother, where Copeland fought to be emancipated from her, but her mother successfully regained custody.

Copeland grew up poor, one of six children in San Pedro, Calif. And she was late to the ballet world, beginning her formal dance training at age 13, about seven years later than most dancers. She was so gifted, however, that she was taken in by her ballet teacher. Besides being black, Copeland also was thought to be too short and too muscular to dance with an elite ballet company.

Copeland made her debut last week in the lead role of “Swan Lake,” considered one of the premiere roles in the ballet world.
