Austin Mahone Is All Smiles, Winks, + Hugs On ‘EXTRA’ Set — Check Out The Adorable Pics!

Austin Mahone smiles a lot — and for good reason! He’s talented, successful, handsome, and has some of the best fans around! So it was no surprise when that awesome smile was out in full force when he stopped by the set of EXTRA at Universal Studios in Universal City, CA early on Monday morning (April 28) to promote safe teen driving for the Allstate Foundation’s #GetThereSafe program, and was greeted not only by host Mario Lopez but a ton of his much-loved Mahomies.

Austin handed out hugs to fans and hammed it up for the cameras who snapped away, looking cool in the Publish ‘Alberta Feather Print’ t-shirt (available here), black leather pants, and the truly wild Snakeskin-Print Leather High-Top Sneakers from Giuseppe Zanotti (available here). He topped the look off with a navy beanie, a simple gold chain, and silver link bracelet.
