Misty Copeland, our #fitspo, #fashpo, #WCW, #blackgirlmagic queen, and globally-renowned ballet superstar, has tied the knot with her partner of TEN WHOLE YEARS. Copeland and her man, Olu Evans, got engaged just last August--two months after Misty was promoted to principal ballerina with American Ballet Theatre. According to Hillary Crosley Coker of Gawker, the two decided to get engaged only once they had achieved their personal goals. So romantic, right?
She and Olu Evans were married this past Sunday in Laguna Beach, California under an archway of ballet pink and white roses on a sunny hotel patio. She wore a sweetheart neckline, form-fitting dress by Inbal Dror. The dress was a peachy-cream color with white lace overlay detailing, and her veil was a long, simple, chapel-style veil. She wore her hair in a low up-do and wore Christian Louboutin shoes. Such perfection! Such simplicity! Back in October during an interview with E! News, she described why a low-key wedding was exactly what she wanted: "I get to become a fairy princess on stage and wear incredible costumes and gowns to galas so, for me, I just want to have a simple, as easy-going day as I can have..." What an inspiration. My new goal of 2016 is to keep it as real as Misty always. There are VERY few photos of the ceremony floating around on the internet, but here are a few, taken by guests and posted to Instagram. You're welcome.
