Actor Zac Efron attended the celebration of Hublot’s new brand ambassador Kobe Bryant last night (March 20, 2013) in Los Angeles, California. Also in attendance were Glee star Mark Salling, stylist Brad Goreski, Jesse Williams from Grey’s Anatomy amongst others.
Zac sat next to Kobe’s wife Vanessa during the dinner portion of the event. Hublot is a luxury Swiss watch brand and the brand also launched Kobe’s signature timepiece, the King Power Black Mamba watch.
Limited to 250 pieces globally, the watch measures 48 mm diameter and features a micro-blasted black ceramic case, sapphire glass and a python snake strap. Purple and gold colors on the dial hint at the collaboration and the LA Lakers association. A Kobe Bryant signature is featured on the case-back sapphire glass.
Efron just returned from SXSW, and apparently he enjoyed a very flirty time at the event.
According to People magazine, “He was hitting on a girl and being super charming. He took photos with some female fans, but asked them to do it on the down low because he didn’t want to bring too much attention to himself.” So modest that Zac.
Enjoying Strongbow cider, the actor, who arrived solo, appeared to be “having a good time and talking to people,” the source said.
