#EXPRESSU AMBASSADORS – What’s up for summer?

Collegiate ambassadors get ready for summer

Right now, our #ExpressU Collegiate Ambassadors are celebrating the start of summer with a toss of a cap and nostalgia for their campus life, or a plan to enjoy one of their last long breaks.

Before heading home, they talked up their favorite school memories and summer fashions, the best part about being an #ExpressU Ambassador and their coolest plans for the long, hot season ahead.

Bonus: Today on Snapchat, Ambassadors from each campus will even let you in on some of their school-end festivities. Friend Express now so you don’t miss out!

Ronnie, U of Miami: “The power of planning. I learned how important it is to go through in your head how you see yourself executing the day’s tasks before even getting out of bed. It makes executing those tasks less stressful.”

Amara, IU: “It’s OK to go outside of your comfort zone!”

Thanks to all our #ExpressU Collegiate Ambassadors for being such amazing partners. Have a great summer – you earned it!

Will & Devon at ESPN The Party


Will & Devon at ESPN The Party

Held at San Francisco’s historic Fort Mason Center, ESPN The Party featured D-Nice at the DJ table and a live set by Nick Jonas. We were parked right next to the red carpet, where the Express Interview Lounge co-hosts, ESPN’s SportsCenter correspondent Will Reeve and Express model Devon Windsor, had exclusive access to the VIP lineup.

Will looked like he’s after a modeling gig in his navy suit and Devon owned that halter top and skirt. Kudos to our girl for being a total pro despite a major travel delay that had her flying cross-country just in time to make it. (Whew!)

ESPN The Party

The pair got the scoop on game predictions and party dream guests from stylish football players past and present like Tyrod Taylor, Marcedes Lewis, Dhani Jones, Santonio Holmes, Anthony Hamilton and Sammy Watkins. Comedian Finesse Mitchell stopped in, along with Miss USA Olivia Jordan and Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach (if their game was seeing who could work a cut-out dress harder, we’d call it a draw). Also on the guest list: Tim Tebow, Terrell Owens, Reggie Bush, Ashley Greene, AnnaLynne McCord and a dressed-to-kill Chanel Iman.

Recap of ESPN The Party

Express ESPN The Party

Inside, a crowd of over 2000 grooved to D-Nice’s party mix and lined up at our booth to snap pics, check out new looks and snag an exclusive Express/ESPN tee. Nick Jonas took the stage to cap off a stellar event, then out came a surprise guest: his brother Joe, to perform “Cake By the Ocean” from his band DNCE.

Photo Booth at ESPN The Party

Such an exciting night. Thanks to ESPN, Will, Devon and everyone who came out to our booth or watched on Snapchat or Periscope. We’ll see you at the next party!




Take a look at what walked down the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival this year and you’ll find some of our favorite trends of the season. From sexy lace and standout embellishment to some extra-sharp suiting, here are a few of the looks we loved the most.


At the premiere of her new movie Septembers of ShirazSalma Hayek totally rocked a curve-loving dress in the red-hot shade of berry. Lace and cut-outs made the scene on model-actress Analeigh Tipton at the debut of the new Ryan Reynolds movie Mississippi Grind, and on It girl Kate Mara at the premiere of her new movie Man Down. Kate was spotted earlier in the week at The Martian premiere in shimmering statement embellishment, a look that also worked beautifully for her co-star in that movie, a burnout velvet-clad Jessica Chastain, and for Kate Winslet. Her high neck halter gown at the premiere of The Dressmaker featured a bodice framed by multicolored sparkle.

For the guys, Tom Hardy brought his A-plus suit game to the debut of Legend with an impeccably tailored three-piece in trending tweed, and The Martian star Matt Damon used his premiere appearance as an opportunity to show the world not just how to perfectly dress down a suit, but how to wear all black without going too dour or dramatic. Also on-trend and in the spotlight: Double-breasted suiting, as worn by The Martian co-star Donald Glover and High-Rise star Tom Hiddleston.
