U.S. Stars Invade Paris for Hot d'Or Awards Show
Several American adult stars have traveled to Paris this week for Hot Video magazine's Hot d'Or Awards Show scheduled for Tuesday night at the famed Salle Wagram theater.
Among the confirmed guests are Jesse Jane, Jessica Drake, Alektra Blue, Kayden Kross, Jenna Haze, Jules Jordan, John Stagliano, Manuel Ferrara, Tori Black, Alexis Texas, Mr. Pete, Bobbi Starr, Dana DeArmond and Kristina Rose. Directors Christoph Clark and Raul Cristian are also on the all-star guest list. They will join dozens of European porn stars such as Black Angelika, Britney, Annette Schwartz, Tarra White, Sophia Gucci, as well as numerous French performers at the event.
Jesse Jane, the Digital Playground contract performer, traveled to Paris three weeks ago for a special promotional visit to help Hot Video promote the show, which is being held in honor of the magazine's 20th anniversary.
Jane did several photo shoots for Hot Video, including the cover of its next issue. She also toured the prestigious Salle Wagram where the ceremony will take place. Hot Video is France's leading adult publication.
Katsuni, the Paris resident and Digital Playground exclusive who is Hot Video's official spokesmodel for the Hot d'Or, hosted Jane. Both starlets did interviews with French media outlets such as Cinécinéma and TPS Star (TV) and NRJ (Radio), Brazil Magazine, and S Magazine for whom she did a fashion shoot.
The show festivities will get underway in Paris in a matter of hours as the nominees will meet the press on the River Palace Boat on the Paris River tonight.
