Estée Lauder officials stated that she would be the first ballet dancer to represent the brand, and that they were planning a multi-year contract with her that would include TV commercials as well as print and digital campaigns. 

“We see Misty as having the ability to connect to women,” Geri Schachner, a senior vice president for global communications at Estée Lauder, said in an interview with the New York Times. “It’s really about the fact that she is an inspiration, particularly to young girls. We want to connect with people who really see her as a role model — not just as a dancer, but as a woman.”
