In a letter to her younger self on glamour.com, the prima ballerina, now 34, calls the appointment, which was announced Monday, ‘wild’ and ‘important’.

‘It matters that women and girls see themselves represented in every hue and every shape, with different careers and different paths. You’re going to do that for people. That is a huge deal,’ she wrote.

Misty’s history of challenging the status quo – she is the first African American woman to hold the position of principal dancer at the American Ballet Theater – is one of the primary reasons she was chosen for the beauty gig.

‘When Estée Lauder launched the Modern Muse fragrance in 2013, we embraced the idea of women as muses, living life on their own terms, achieving great things and inspiring everyone around them,’ said Estée Lauder global brand president Stephane de la Faverie.
