Kate Upton Is Passionate About Moustaches (Like on Her Man, Maks!)
Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton makes it clear she likes facial hair, particularly on her BF, dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
The 21-year-old has signed on with Gillette to support “Movember,” a global men's health campaign in November, which encourages men to grow the “Mo” -- or moustache -- for 30 days to raise awareness and funds for prostate and testicular cancer.
"Definitely always have a Mo during Movember," Upton told E! News. "Movember is such an amazing cause and it's definitely important to bring awareness to men's health... It's a great cause, so I don't see why anyone wouldn't support it."
Kate's 33-year-old beau is certainly following suit in that department, but the model says it doesn't really matter to her if her man has facial hair or not. She said, "I think however they feel confident is how they look their best.”

Maks and Kate recently took their relationship public after keeping it hush-hush for a while. The former “Dancing with the Stars” pro told “Extra” earlier this month, "Things are going great… I think I got lucky… she's an amazing girl. Everyone is happy, we are enjoying each other's company."
Upton concurred when “Extra” talked with her this week. “We're having a lot of fun and I have met his family. He has really great people around him. I think that's part of his appeal.”
