Disclaimer: There are links in this post that are potentially not safe for work (nsfw). I want to give credit where credit is due and I believe providing links to source material (and those who made this post possible) is the best way to do so. I’m also linking to twitter profiles (some of which may be considered nsfw) in cases where persons permitted me to take their photos.
Thanks to the Internet, what happens in Vegas, doesn’t necessarily stay in Vegas (especially when I’m traveling with two cameras and my iPhone). What fun would my trip down the red carpet for the star-studded adult video awards show be if I couldn’t share any stories or photos? How is it that I got invited to the 2010 AVN Awards and to walk the red carpet? I’ll address that in more detail in another post. For now, I will just say thank you to my friend Kimbirly Orr at Viral Media West.
Many of those who know me are aware I love taking photos. I post stuff consistently to my Flickr photo stream and I often use photos in posts I do about conferences and other topics. I took hundreds of photos while at the AVN Awards (I never actually got to see the show live as I backstage taking even more photos) and I got permission to post a few sets here. Please note that while I took these photos, they are exclusively licensed to AVN, and they (along with the talent featured) should receive link credit if used.
Enough already, here’s a select set of my photos from the 2010 AVN Awards Red Carpet Walk at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. If by any chance I identified someone incorrectly, please post a comment and I’ll get the information updated, my apologies in advance if I’ve done so.
Jessica Drake and Jesse Jane hosting on the 2010 AVN Awards red carpet event. Photos were taken inside, before celebrities and adult superstars walked along the red carpet towards the theater inside the Palms. There were thousands of fans outside, and as you could expect, the place was a madhouse.
You may think I am odd (it’s my anatomically correct mindset) but I love this photo of adult film star Dylan Ryder because her clavicles line up perfectly. You may not have noticed at first but I’m happy to point it out.
There were lots of interviews taking place along the red carpet. The above photo is of Sasha Grey being interviewed just before reaching the AVN Awards Twitter Pit (there was a whole group of social media peeps broadcasting tweets and pics of red carpet happenings live during the event).
There’s something about Savanna that really grabbed my attention, thankfully Savanna Samson paused long enough so I could take her photo, while she was walking the red carpet.
No stranger to twitter, Dana DeArmond (who had iPhone in hand) stopped and visited the Twitter Pit during her walk along the 2010 AVN Awards red carpet. She has perfect teeth.
One of the hosts for the 2010 AVN Awards was Kayden Kross. Not only is she a stunning beauty, in the brief moments I spoke to her, she showed a glowing attitude and a great sense of humor.
I’m so thankful people paused so I could take photos. It may not seem like it in the pictures, but the place was chaos with people, fans and photographers everywhere, trying to grab pictures or just say hello to adult celebrities. Angelina Armani not only stopped for photos, she paused so we could take photos with some of the people working the twitter pit (I will share those pictures in another post).
If I keep adding photos this page is going to take forever to load. I still have pics to share from backstage, and I’ll include a link right here when that post is complete. Once again, many thanks to the awesome folks at AVN and Kimbirly Orr of Viral Media West for making my entire AVN weekend in Las Vegas sensational!
