Kobe Bryant has become the newest brand ambassador for Hublot watches. Hublot will release the “King Power Black Mamba”, worldwide. Features included in the watch, a snake around the counter at 9 o’clock and Kobe’s jersey number, “24”, over 6 o’clock. The King Power Black Mamba is a limited edition with only 250 watches being released. To celebrate the new collaboration, the Lakers superstar celebrated his new role with a haute fete on the rooftop of the London West Hollywood. The presentation was followed by a basketball shoot-off with two children from After-School All Stars Los Angeles, a charitable beneficiary of the Kobe & Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation.  Simply by taking shots from a makeshift basketball court constructed over the hotel’s rooftop pool, the contest raised $30,000 for the program. Afterwards, the brand hosted an intimate dinner in partnership with GQ that was attended by Zac Efron, Jimmy Kimmel, Mark Salling, Jesse Williams, Garcelle Beauvais, Brad Goreski, and Christos Garkinos. During the dinner, Hublot’s CEO Ricardo Guadalupe presented Bryant with a special Jeroboam of Dom Perignon vintage 1998, one of 50 in existence. Bryant joins the ranks of elite Hublot athletes including Mimai Heat’s Dwyane Wade and Olympian Usain Bolt. Fashion sidebar. You know Vanessa Bryant has some great pieces in her fashion repertoire. This red Chanel clutch and jewelry. LOVE. Vanessa is a Taurus like I am so I can appreciate the emeralds. That’s our birth stone!   By the way, YES she did just flex on you with the helicopter shot.
