Fellas, if your special lady isn't exactly a fan of the moustache, take comfort in knowing the world’s hottest supermodel is on your side.
Kate Upton is Gillette's - and we’re guessing most of the male population's - favourite "Mo Sista" this Movember. So what exactly is a Sista? A gal who’s fully on-board supporting her whiskered friends and raising awareness and funds for men’s health (sort of a Mo without the mo). In other words; Kate’s down with the 'stache.
"I think everyone I've dated or I've been friends with supports Movember because it’s such an amazing cause," said Upton during a phone interview from New York. "It's also fun for guys to try new styles and see what works for them."
Is one kind of 'stache more appealing to her than another?
"I think its guys' personal preference or what they feel comfortable trying," says Upton. Though she did spot some bristles earlier in the day that were a turn-off.
"I can't remember who was rocking it, but it was missing the hair just by the nose and it was very strange and I didn't like it....it looked like they started trimming and started it (sic) below the nose and then forgot."
If we're talking turn-ons, Kate finds a good sense of humour and a nice smile most attractive – qualities her current boyfriend, Dancing with the Stars peach Maksim Chmerkovskiy, must have in spades - though she kept mum on the subject of love.

So would Kate ever pitch-in to help a guy shave, romance novel-style?
"I shave myself and they can keep to their own grooming...I don't find it romantic, I have enough to shave. Very long legs," said the (ahem) 5'10" model.
Upton's Sista status is a no-brainer for the brand (which is partnering with the Movember campaign) – where Kate goes, men's peepers follow. But the pairing was fitting for the 21-year-old bombshell, too. She was game with supporting a good cause and uses Gillette products on her own legs-for-days.
"I'd honestly rather shave it's just a few seconds in the morning than go through the pain of waxing." (We hear you, sista.)
