When an invite for Jacquelyne Love’s fashion show -- Tuesday night's official opener for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Miami Swim -- touted a Beach Boys concert and special guest John Stamos, little did we know it actually meant the studly Stamos would be on stage.
The Beach Boys connection was easy; the swimwear designer is married to founding Beach Boy Mike Love.

As for the Stamos, apparently he’s a fan and has drummed, strummed, and sung with the guys for years. (And between you and me, he looks great doing it!)
Yes, the Stamos is such a stunner, not even his recent slurry interview on Aussie TV (which we tried to ask him about but couldn’t get past security to do so) can detract from his sex-appeal; dressed in black jeans, black T-shirt, black aviators, and white tennis shoes the hunkster crooned for the crowd assembled poolside at the Raleigh Hotel as the bevy of models strutted through shin-high water parading Love’s 45-piece collection.
After a short break, the nine-member band took to the stage for a second time and delivered a 90-minute concert, belting out some of the beach Boys’ greatest hits, including Good Vibrations, Surfing USA, and Surfin’ Safari.
And Stamos -- who we didn’t see take even a wee sip all night -- seemed very much sober at the end of it! --Joanne Green
