Beauty Queen Kate Grant, who became the first person with Down’s syndrome to win a pageant last year, has revealed she’s now a brand ambassador for cosmetics giant Benefit.
The 19-year-old – who was crowned champion in the Teen Ultimate Beauty Of The World pageant in 2018 made waves when she appeared on This Morning last year.
Kate, who describes herself as the ‘first model in Northern Ireland with Down’s syndrome, was hailed an ‘inspiration’ when she appeared on the ITV show, which saw her strut on the catwalk during the fashion segment.
Now she has partnered with Benefit Cosmetics, appearing on the brand’s Instagram account modelling its new roller liner, in a post that’s been liked more than 4,000 times.
She also appears in a new Wing Women campaign video, confidently strutting her stuff for the camera.
The post reads: ‘WING WOMAN WEDNESDAY. Introducing our first #wingwomanwednesday the gorgeous @kategrantmodel. We’re so pleased to have her as one of our Wing Women.’
Kate was also showered with praise by fans, following her latest venture.
One social media user commented: ‘I am officially @kategrantmodel ‘number 1 fan’.
It’s nothing to do with the fact that she is Irish and everything to do with the fact she is FABULOUS.’
