There's no denying it: Kate Upton is one hot commodity. The model-turned-actress was named the first celebrity face of Express last summer, and now we're getting a sneak peek of some of the images from the brand's newest campaign. Upton appears in the spring 2015 Express advertisements looking better than ever.

The images, shot by famed photographer Mario Sorrenti on location in Miami, show Upton looking gorgeous in springtime-ready pieces including striped shorts, a floral dress, and an LBD. "The whole shoot was just really laid back and fun and the clothes were really comfortable and amazing so it was just the perfect day," Upton tells InStyle.

And Express seems to be a natural fit for the bombshell model, who has been wearing their easy and stylish clothes for years. "Express has been part of my life from the very beginning," she says. "It was the first store [my sister and I] would go to because they have great quality clothes for affordable prices and we’d always go to our local mall and go shopping at Express." Back then, her favorite pieces included the brand's jeans.

And although she's come a long way since then, Upton admits her style hasn't changed too much. "I mean I guess 'cause I live in New York I have a little New York influence in my style now, but I haven’t really changed my style that much," she explains. "I still, you know, like simple classic looks. Jeans and button downs, blazers, stuff like that."
