Miss Teen USA 2006 Katie Blair was the first Miss Universe Organization pageant winner to participate as spokes model for YMI Jeanswear during her tenure. As part of her prize package, Katie received a contract as spokes model for the Holiday 2006 YMI Jeanswear multi-media advertising campaign. Her involvement with YMI included modeling for the campaign, including a national billboard advertising campaign in Los Angeles and New York City and national print advertising in magazines such as Seventeen, CosmoGirl!, Teen Vogue and OK!, to name a few.
