Gigantic Coverage of CES 2014 Models #CES2014

(Marissa Kimberlin and Sarai Rollins for DroneFly by DJI)
Las Vegas, NV, by Py - 2014 CES has a record breaking year.  It has the highest attendance to the show accompanied by the largest amount of exhibitors on the most square footage space in their history.  We don't know about how the world economy is going this year, but this is such an amazing sign of innovations run abundant and wanna-bes run amok!  We love it!

Of course, this should translate to a record presence of promotional models.  We don't have an official hiring count; nonetheless we did happily see a lot of very well established models as well as some we are not familiar with.  By the sheer talents and general perkiness of these models, we see a happy economy coming this year!

Some of the major vendors have switched their promotional tactics, such as Supertooth did not continue their The Fantasy Las Vegas Dancers number (search supertooth).  However, we still saw many great ideas, including off-the-matrix set up by CoolerMaster in a Palms Hotel suite with our cover model Claudia Alan and Ashley Twomey.  

Another indicator of economic direction, if we follow the fashion world's urban legend, is that the hemlines of the wardrobe by many models are higher this year, and the colors are more vibrant.  These are all tell-tale signs of a strong growth economy ensuing an exuberant lifestyle with a good dose of general optimism!  Thus, we boldly predict that 2014 will be a great booming year!!

We will cover the technical aspects of the show in a different section.  Here we focus on the amazing top models who got selected to attend the mega CES show!  It's not only a resume item, but also a keen who-and-who roster list for other vendors who want to hire great talents!
(Ashley Twomey and Claudia Alan for CoolerMaster)
At the Palms Hotel, up in the sky, there is a suite set up by CoolerMaster to demonstrate their latest fans and also an foyer of their computer accessories.  With the two amazing models, including our cover model Claudia Alan (in green above) and Ashley Twomey, they stroke gold with the media photographers for sure!

(iHip Models including: Amber Ettinger, Olivia Paladin, Destiny Monique, Natalie Paladin, Krystle Lina, Jessyca Rayanne)
iHip always hires great models, showing their promotional muscles at the CES.  The cool lineup of the above iHip models and their classy, elegant and attractive uniforms, makes the show ultra dazzling!
(Jessica Harbour for iFit and Natztech: KATE)
At iFit, we caught up with Jessica Harbour, who always looks so healthy, upbeat and amazing!  She told us that on average, she walked about 15 miles each day on treadmill at the CES show to demonstrate the iFit product.  That is some serious walking there!  Who says that promotional modeling is an easy job?!  KATE and her friend at the Naztech looked amazing just like their products and the staff in the booth!
Sigma brought in a car, and put models around it.  If we did not capture this, we can say that we failed our mission of our magazine's assignment.  They just look so good together (the car + models, or the orange yellow color and red, or two models...)

There are many + many great models in this coverage.  Click below to see the complete photo summary and stories behind many photos...
CoolerMaster had a different approach when it comes to engage their clients.  They did not hire a big booth in the convention center.  Instead, they rented a suite in the posh Palms Hotel Resort, overlooking the Las Vegas city skyline, and had a table at the door as this is "by invitation only" set up.  Not only they could filter out the general public traffic, and got very qualified leads, they created this exclusive aura that accompanies their products.

And with this exclusivity approach, they had one of the industry's top models, Claudia Alan, as well as the stunning Ashley Twomey as their demo persons, showing a luxurious lifestyle with their products.  On top of it, during their promotional stay, Super Street Magazine announced that Claudia Alan is their Miss Super Street 2014.  We were so happy for her, not just for her being our cover model, but also that Claudia is such a smart and beautiful and right-minded model.  She is definitely a model of many other models!
(Kristy-Lei Juan for Anymode)
At the Anymode, the phone case manufacturer's booth, we caught a glimpse of our cover model, Kristy-Lei Juan, at her busiest hour.  The booth was giving out free phone cases, and expectedly, there was a long queue for the nice freebies.  Kristy was busy scanning each person's badge.  However, she made a point giving us a split second happy peace sign!  That's awesome!

One blonde model at the Sigma booth has an extraordinary talent in showing her modeling skills.  Instead of being simply beautiful by the car, she stroke out poses and expressions that can be shown in a fashion magazine, or in our magazine!  
(Sarai Rollins for Dronefly by DJI)
At the DJI, the biggest booth in the connected exhibit hall at LVH next to the convention center, Sarai Rollins is holding up a very cool Phantom II drone helicopter which can be attached with a Zenmuse, the gimbal system for video/still cameras.  Sarai is super hospitable to the attendees, that make her a super awesome brand ambassador at the CES show.
(disclaimer: we won one of Dronefly's give-aways in a blind drawing.)
(Jessica Harbour for iFit)
We were very happy to see Jessica Harbour at the CES show for iFit booth.  At first, we did not immediately recognize her, with her pony tail in the back.  When we looked closer, a brush of surprise and delight swept us.  It's always so great to see Jessica!  She is such an athletic and bright American girl who inspires people and photographers alike to feel good about ... life in general!  As mentioned earlier she walked about 15 miles each day on the treadmill to demonstrate the iFit products.  The product actually is fun which shows you local views of the geo-locations of your choice and adjusts the inclination of the treadmill.  So Jessica's 15 miles are not all just downhill breezy walk.  It has some really tough terrains to conquer as well!  We have our hats' off to her!!
(Raichelle Viado for MiPow)
AT Mipow, Raichelle Viado showed us the bright side of the products, including the wireless headphones and smart-phone controlled LED light bulbs.  Raichelle is such a creative model who will make anything come to live in contact with her!  She should have her own booth in the next CES for her bright ideas!
(Kirsty for Bower USA)
Kirsty always has that super glamour smoking hot look.  At the Bower USA booth, she did it again, especially with the highly illuminated shelves and floor from Bower.
(Destiny Monique, Krystle Lina, and Jessyca Rayanne for iHip)
At iHip booth, we met up with the three graces who immediately got our attention.  The eye-catching orange mini skirt, with a simple white T, completed with a fiery orange floral patterned scarf, this outfit combination totally stood out in the CES.  We covered Jessyca Rayanne for many times, and she looks even more awesome and amazing!  The iHip booth also had videos and posters feature this amazing beauty!  They definitely did a great job with the overall presentation!!
(Shanna Lowder for Fesco)
At the Fesco booth, Shanna Lowder showed off her gorgeous red hair pony tail with her white shirt and pencil skirt office lady look.  Chic!!
(Constance Nunes for Southern Telecom, and Jeri Lee for Izzi Gadgets)
Constance Nunes is a super amazing model.  Her mere presence at the Southern Telecom booth could stop the traffic, and people would just automatically come to the booth.  That's what we called a magical promotional power!  Jeri Lee and her friend gave a boost to the Izzi Gadgets company by getting people to come to their booth.  The dynamic duo definitely got lots of leads to the mother booth!
(Veronica Telegina for Odoyo)
AT the Odoyo case booth, Veronica Telegina (right) is a petite but very congenial model who got people's 2nd look at the booth.  Both Veronica and her friend for Odoyo kept the booth flow smooth especially they are really close at the entrance path to the LVH space.  Location, location and location!
(Natalia Marie for Fesco)
At Fesco booth, besides Shanna Lowder, we have Natalia Marie guarding the booth as well.  Even though we did not have a great opportunity to do a nano shoot with Natalia, she definitely gave us some really memorable moments!  More to come for sure!
(Jaffet Haro and Fulvia for ZTE)
Jaffet Haro and Fulvia looked ultra chic at the ZTE space.  It's a gigantic exhibit space and ZTE also brought in a car to accompany their presence.  Both of the models looked amazing!  No matter when we stopped by the booth, they always had that very beautiful smiles!  They are so impressive and wonderful and professional!!

As mentioned earlier, there were record breaking amount of exhibitors at this year's CES.  We did not get to all of them or know them better, but at least we brought back some of the very cool talents and models here so you can appreciate their fantastic representations!


When it comes to performance, it's another level of modeling, especially when it's blended with cosplay or thematic costumes.  After all, it's CES, which is the epicenter of tech world exhibitions, and anything related, which includes the gaming, fantasy, comic books, and anime cultures too.  Remember The Big Bang Theory?  Well they sell their framed and signed posters too!
We left no stones un-turned (to a degree).  Even just a display panel of promotional models could not escape our coverage.  The three models at the 2Vavlor's booth Mybat panel looked amazing and attention grabbing!

And of course, we did leave some stones un-turned.  There were several models that we missed whom we should have caught.  Well, we just have to devise a better mechanism for doing a better job next time...

Overall, the 2014 CES is a great success, both in term of show management and attending representations.  We foresee a strong economic upturn in 2014.  We look forward to an even bigger 2015 CES and with even more promotional personalities!
