NEW YORK--1 Aug--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

Estee Lauder today announced Misty Copeland, principal ballerina at American Ballet Theatre, as the new global spokesmodel for the brand's Modern Muse fragrance. Misty will front the new Modern Muse fragrance campaign across digital, TV, in-store and print, debuting August 2017.

"When Estee 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 Stephane de La Faverie, Global Brand President, Estee Lauder. "Misty has challenged the status quo to achieve her dreams and inspired so many young women along the way. Misty will bring the fragrance concept to life through her unique story."

"Misty is the perfect representation of today's modern muse," said Aerin Lauder, Style and Image Director, Estee Lauder. "She is all about feminine strength, power, dedication and passion, and you see that in what she does every day, whether she is performing or inspiring the next generation of dancers. I think she is a wonderful role model and I am thrilled to welcome her to the Estee Lauder brand."

"I am so honored to represent Estee Lauder Modern Muse," said Misty Copeland. "My two passions are dance and giving back, and I love passing on knowledge to the next generation. 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."

The Modern Muse campaign was produced by Estee Lauder's in-house Creative team in collaboration with Spring Studios and director and photographer Pamela Hanson. The campaign includes extensive storytelling around the theme, "What inspires you?" to personalize the Modern Muse concept to Misty, and engage women in conversation across digital and social platforms using the hashtag #BeAnInspiration. Misty is featured in the campaign teaching and inspiring young ballerinas and talking about the importance of connecting with the next generation.

About Modern Muse

The Modern Muse fragrance is a Lush Floral Woody scent that conveys confidence, style and creativity with a modern, youthful attitude, featuring an alluring contrast of sparkling florals and sleek modern woods. Launched in 2013, the Modern Muse scent was inspired by the complexity of a modern woman today.

The Sparkling Jasmine Accord captures her creative energy and magnetic femininity. Exotic Mandarin and tempting Honeysuckle Nectar send a spark of energy through a youthful sensation of Dewy Petals. Two extractions of Jasmine Sambac, including China Absolute, bring luminous texture to the feminine bouquet of rich Tuberose Fleur and Fresh Lily.

The Sleek Woods Accord captures her sleek style, strength and sensuality, expressed through this innovative blend of two Patchouli essences wrapped in the creaminess of Madagascar Vanilla, rich Amber Wood and soft Musk – all of which craft an undeniably sensual finish.
