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.

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.

EXPRESS ROCKS: SAINT MOTEL

The Band Behind the JeansWhen we kicked off the search for a song to go with our Express Jeans “Fit For You” campaign, we were after something that’s easy to love and hard to forget – like the fabulous Karlie Kloss. We found just the sound we were looking for in the hand claps, horn lines and ‘70s-inspired bass groove of Saint Motel’s “My Type.” On their recent tour stop in our own Columbus, Ohio, we got together with the L.A. band for some set photos and a chat about their new connection to Express Jeans and Karlie. So, is the iconic model just their type? You’ll have to watch the video to find out, then head to Saint Motel’s official site for more great music and upcoming show dates.
