Laugh in the face of danger

Bonjour !

I am wondering if there is a specific expression in French for the following: "to laugh in the face of danger," please? I see an earlier thread for "se moquer" as possibly meaning 'to laugh in one's face,' but would that also work in this context of laughing in the face of danger?

For example, 'She laughs in the face of danger' = Elle se moque du danger. Or maybe Elle a un rit qui se moque du danger. (But, that 2nd sentence sounds really bizarre to me??)

I'd appreciate any help, please.

Merci !
