When it came down to the shoes, Copeland donned a pair of black glittery sandals that also incorporated a feather detail on the back of each shoe.

Off the red carpet, the ballerina typically wears athleisurewear styles like flowy tank tops, neutral stretch pants and other sporty pieces. According to her Instagram feed, Copeland is a big fan of sneakers, but also her pointe shoes. When she’s out and about on the streets, she wears fun, fashionable pieces like colorful outwear, elongating jeans and slouchy T-shirts. For formal events, Copeland makes striking statements in gowns from brands like Fendi and Prabal Gurung.

The dancer has also ventured into the fashion industry having modeled for popular brands like Theory and Stuart Weitzman.  Copeland used to be an ambassador for Under Armour.
