News broke just yesterday that Kate Upton would be the new face of retail giant Express, and the blonde bombshell is already starting her new duties!

On Thursday (March 13), the Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl graced the catwalk and showed off her hosting skills at Express’ runway show in Miami Beach, FL.

Looking perfect for the Sunshine state weather, Kate rocked a flirty white dress and tan blazer as she posed for the cameras before taking a front row seat to check out the new duds.

Eager to take part in this new opportunity, Miss Upton retweeted a message from Express about her new job, adding, “so excited !!”
