"The Beauty & Pin-Ups brand is a celebration of the empowerment of a woman and what it took to be a pin-up in 1935, and carrying that message in a modern sense," said, Beauty & Pin-Ups CEO Kenny Kahn.

"So as we were launching this product, in our mind it could have been the next traditional pin-up — but as soon as we came up with the name 'Fearless' it was really easy, we were like, 'Well Katie's fearless.'"

Kahn described Katie's dynamic personality and said, "She just owns it. She just has fun, she's comfortable within herself, she is really excited to be our brand ambassador."

Katie's outlook on life makes things even better. She said, "People see me for who I am and they see me not as someone with a disability, but that I have ability. And I like to try new different things and I inspire women to do that. Beauty belongs to everybody."
