Black History Month and Interior Design: Misty Copeland

In light of an upcoming exhibition at New York's Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) on Edgar Degas, Misty Copeland recreates some of Degas' most famous ballet paintings in a photo shoot for Harper's Bazaar. She has been the subject of much fanfare since she was appointed the principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre and it is all well deserved. Misty is the first African-American woman to hold the title.

Like most women, Misty seems to have closet space woes too.

And like me, she seems to love a sky-high heel! Photo via intothegloss.com
