    Is there anyone who can make sweating look better than a dancer? The very definition of grace, they spin and jump as if it were nothing. And, yet they always seem to do it while looking like absolute perfection, as if workout style was a thing taught at summer ballet camp. Misty Copeland, soloist at American Ballet Theatre, certainly owns this look, but she knows the truth: When it comes to activewear, there is no fashion without function.

    Under Armour combines these two like the most flawless pas de deux. Its sweat-wicking shirts and akin-to-skin shorts can take a workout to new heights. Here the prima ballerina shows off the fitness brand's street-to-studio gear replete with graphic tanks, printed sports bras, and loud leggings. The effect is surprising — is that the gym we want to hit? We know it's not enough to turn us into ballet prodigies, but we'll settle for looking this fly at yoga.
