Hart Baur and John Eaton attended the Express fashion show at the Raleigh on Miami Beach this week to support Kate Upton. Hailing from Melbourne, Florida, Kate is a fan of Skum and was disappointed she missed the band’s show last month at Baroos.
“I was in Melbourne in December, but I had to leave before New Year’s,” said Kate. “I wish they had played the show when I was in town!”
Kate recently signed on to be the new face of Express and the guys couldn’t be happier.
“When I heard that Kate was getting this gig, I was pumped,” said lead guitarist John Eaton. “Besides being gorgeous, she’s a great person and will represent the line well.”
The Raleigh was packed with fans and fashion gurus for the twenty minute fashion show that highlighted some of the new Express lines for the Spring.
“I’m a jeans and T-shirt girl, so working with Express is a perfect fit,” added Kate. “It’s great to be here and have the guys to support me.”
“Kate looks spectacular and she is going to be a great ambassador for Express,” said lead singer Hart Baur. “It was great to be out here to support her. We were both born in Melbourne, so we have some common ground. I was telling her she needs to be in our next video.”
At that, Kate laughed and said she would “have to see that script first!”
As the show started, John was hanging out in the DJ booth spinning some tracks, while Hart and famed attorney Walter Bruning watched the show from Bruning’s personal cabana. Walter, who has done some work for the Raleigh in the past, enjoys a good relationship with the management team.
“I love the Raleigh!” said Walter.
Walter’s guest list included Miami Heat star Chris Bosch and radio personality Lee Sterling. “Great event for sure. Anytime you’re hanging with Walter at the Raleigh it’s a fun time,” said Sterling. “The man can throw a cabana party.”
“I’ve done several contracts for them (The Raleigh) in the past. It’s a great resort,” said Walter. “Always a joy to come out here and see what’s going on. Great show today and it’s always wonderful seeing Ms. Upton. My she’s hot.”
Kate looked gorgeous in her Express white strapless dress as she concluded the show to a standing ovation.
“Great night tonight,” added John. “This is what it’s all about. Getting out and supporting friends.”
