Stunning Girl on a Coke Bike with Forgiato and Cool Models from Sony and Nitto Tires at SEMA 2014

 Las Vegas, NV / by W&HM Staff
Sometimes, outside the convention center at the SEMA show, is just as much fun as inside the halls.  When we walked back our way to our transportation, leaving the convention center, we suddenly met up this amazing scene of two beautiful legs on two awesome wheels, and a stunning body and gorgeous face!  At the outdoor display, Forgiato Wheels had various types of cool cars and cool bikes on display.  Even though we don't know what this model's name, she surely has made a huge impression on us, as well as everyone passed by.  These are great feature shots already!  Kudos to everyone making this happen!!

SEMA Models 2014 Vossen's Kristy Lei-Juan, Spec-D Tuning Girls and Morning Star!

Las Vegas, NV / by W&HM Staff
We found our cover model Kristy Lei-Juan, for Vossen, at the very last day of the last hour that we worked there and we were so happy to see her again. Despite a sequence of equipment failure during the day, after so many days of abusing we were sure, we made the best of what we had and Kristy never fails us either.  At the end, we still go many great shots of her and be able to catch up with her to learn that she is doing great and very busy at where she is at right now.  We are very happy for her and look forward to working with her in the future again!

At a totally different convention hall, we also met up the Spec-D Tuning girls.  Spec-D Tuning booth at SEMA is a always crowded spot, because they always bring out the top models for their promotional posters and presence.  In the article you will find that they are simply awe-striking and awesome!

Then traveling farther north and back in time too, we met up Morning Star, who is always so sunny and bright and professional, and picture perfect!!  Definitely check out the full article to see!

iFit Full Fitness Lifestyle Concept and More Innovations at CES 2015

 Wheels and Heels Magazine / Las Vegas, NV / by W&HM Staff
This concludes the coverage of the models and some of the new products at the CES 2015.  More product coverage continues at our Wheels section (here).  Definitely check it out in the future too!

Fitness is the new black in the innovation arena.  Last year, they were tugged across various show spots in the convention center.  Now they have their own (huge) floor space at the second main convention center, Sands Expo.  The vast arrays of vendors and energized attendees packed the show floor, creating micro-local traffic jams.

Pumped by the wearable wave, wellness-awareness movements, and simply the new fusion of various technologies, fitness segment of the industry has flourished to be a mega + mega business.  T'his is very well demonstrated at the iFit booth.

Leading the fitness exhibit main event is the iFit company. They had a raised platform showcasing their fitness technologies all integrated together, by various fitness actresses and actors.  They demo'd a concept of fitness as a full lifestyle cycle, not just treadmills or cycling machines.  As it is illustrated here...

The Sweet, The Cool, and The Fashionable, CES Models 2015 @harmonyswank

 Wheels and Heels Magazine / Las Vegas, NV / by W&HM Staff - 
It's been a very long time since the last time we saw Harmony Swank.  Each time we see Harmony, it's always so fun and so exciting.  Her natural upbeat personality totally shows her passion toward what she does.  Case in point, at the CES 2015, she was promoting the company, 3D Sound's directional surround sound headphone.  Not only she can explain the products that she is demo'ing at the booth, she went several steps above.  She can place you in a situation that you could understand the use and benefits of the product.  This is quite amazing, that even some of the product managers, or booth staffs, or salespeople cannot do.  She made you feel the product, and the imagine yourself using it.  And on top of that, she is such a genuine person with enthusiasm, that you can feel the passion of hers for the product, and naturally you want to root for the team.  It's super infectious and it's super appreciated.  We totally love her brain, her beauty and her bright personality!  Totally awesome!

NVidia and Renovo Coupe, iWorld DJ Amie Rose, and More at CES 2015

 Wheels and Heels Magazine / Las Vegas, NV / by W&HM Staff
This year's CES is full of excitements both on the technology innovations as well as the glamour side of the show too.  At the Nvidia booth, tons of people gathered around their latest debut of new technologies.  Especially at the corner of the booth, there was a constant crowd swirling around a car that is shiny and bright.

At a closer inspection, it's Renovo Coupe, the world famous get-up speedy car, which has many to show for, including the special chrome exterior, as well as flipped up hood for inner inspections. But most of all, they partnered with NVidia for their dashboard console system.  As shown in the picture, they have a unique design that has its own style and flavor.  The cool and minimalistic approach made the streamline style even more appealing.  No wonder there are so many people admiring the marvels of the design and the beauty and the muscles inside it!

Cool Costumes, Runway Fashion, and Hi Tech Models at CES 2015

 Wheels and Heels Magazine / Las Vegas, NV / Photos by Clinton Lum and Py Pai, Text by W&HM Staff
At CES, there are always vendors that do the creative promotions, especially this is CES, the show that defines innovation and promotion.  In past years, we've seen the Fantasy Las Vegas Show dancers created huge sensation in the art of promotion.  They totally brought in mega exposure and attractions.

However, this year CES 2015, it is somewhat more demure but with a different twist.  We witnessed the costume fashion show of ancient China dynasties at ChangHong TV space, and Haier's modern interpretation of fashion runway show, plus the Empire phone case's Halloween-friendly super heroine costumes promotional models.
These are all great efforts and we totally applaud their investment and the show-woman-ship!  The technology demonstrations across thousands of vendors big or small, are cool and fun, but after a while, they become dry, and an overburden of one's left side of the brain by the afternoon of each day.  That is the perfect time to get the right side to take control and balance out the lopsided brain works.

Also, design in general is becoming more and more important to the technology.  Without sound aesthetics, and visual stimulation and guidance, any technology could feel like 1980's green screen ascii text prompt... functional but intimidating.

Therefore, for the companies that drive out of the the easy and comfort driveway and go extra miles to bring the design elements to the show, we all applaud their efforts and want to give them thumbs up after thumbs up!  They not only refuse to just hire a model and dress her / him in the business suite, the went out and created their own statements that are louder and more memorable.  It's marketing at its better way!

Girls Are Diamond's Best Friends with Diamond Audio and Cerwin-Vega at CES 2015 @jasmyn_skye

 Wheels and Heels Magazine / Las Vegas, NV / by W&HM Staff
At the CES 2015, the presence of promotional models is noticeably smaller compared to the past few years.  However, that's not case for the Diamond Audio / Cerwin-Vega team.  They have many, like as many as 7 models standing by their booth and ready for all attendees to snap pictures of these lovely ladies together with their audio systems and loudspeakers on display.  With most certainty, they are the most prominent promotional models in a booth compared to all others in the show.  We applaud their great efforts to generate the buzz at the show!  Well done!

Here you can see the great personalities and appearances of these cool models!

Super Awesome Models Rocked at #Fugoo Airstream at CES 2015 @ericanagashima @nikkialexis @skye_mcdonald

 Wheels and Heels Magazine / Las Vegas, NV / by W&HM Staff - 
The design team at the Fugoo has done a great job.  The tough, waterproof, sandproof, snowproof wireless speaker company has set up an impressive booth at the 2015 CES.  Even before you see what's going on, you would first see a forever beautiful Airstream trailer parked at the booth.  Then when you walk around, suddenly, you are on an outdoor camping ground, with four gorgeous girls dancing, laughing and joking with you.  Now that's an outdoor party for sure!  Fugoo has created a successful and succintly recreated an wilderness immersion.

Corissa Furr at Juno Audio Plus Hyper Model Amanda Gaddis at CES 2015 @corissafurr

Wheels and Heels Magazine / Las Vegas, NV / by W&HM Staff -
Tugged in the Ventian Hotel Tower suites, which is still an extension of CES, is the cool Juno Audio company.  As we were wrapping up our exploration in the Sands expo, which right below the hotel at the convention center in Venetian hotel, we got an instagram comment from  Corissa Furr, our cover model.  We immediately seeked her direction to find where she is at.  It was not an easy feast, when you tried to navigate the convention center, plus joining hotels of Palazzo and Venetian, plus the bewildering lines of poker tables and slot machines, plus and plus the cannal shopping mall.  We literally took almost half an hour, walked extra couple of miles and finally found our cover model.  But the search was well worth it!

Kirsty Greets at Bower and Annelise Marie Goes to Canada with Gentec at CES 2015!

Wheels and Heels Magazine / Las Vegas, NV / by W&HM Staff - 
When we first ran into the CES 2015, one of the models that we met immediate is Kirsty, the gorgeous Diamond Dozen model at the Bower booth.  We were ecstatic about seeing her there, because she is always so awesome and so cool to work with!  Then after two  days of roaming, we ran into Annelise Marie, at the Made in Canada booth, who is another stunning model that we don't see very often.  This is very awesome!  The two smoking hot models definitely made our trip to CES a great pleasure!

Cool Cool Ashley Harris and Amber Webb for JVC Gumy!

Wheels and Heels Magazine / Las Vegas, NV / by W&HM Staff
This is such a great and happy surprise!  While we were roaming at the CES 2015 looking for new gadgets and fun demos, we came across a pair of sharply dressed models right by a blue, we mean very blue, uh egg (? or bean? or microphone? or ??).  Besides the attention grabbing blue egg, we saw someone really familiar... So out of our professional drive, we stared at the model, and stared, and stared.  At the same time, the model looked back at us, at first at a far mental distance, then a few seconds later, her eyes grew bigger, so did ours... And then it's like wow!  Ashley, we shouted!  All ended with a big hug after this quick staring standoff.  The story continues, but first...

Magnificent TCL Models with Marvelous Display of 4K TVs

 Wheels and Heels Magazine / Las Vegas, NV / W&HM Staff
TCL, the world's third largest TV maker, always has a major presence at the CES shows through out the years.  Their booth set up is strategically located in the center of the central hall, where you will easily find them from any angles and any isles.  This year, their huge presence was combined with three awesome models in their bright red dresses, Serenity Shay, Kristin Reed, and Leila Knight, who is also our feature model!

This year's CES is the biggest and most awesome show in its entire history!  The vast amount of space (2.2 million square feet)  with more than 3,600 exhibitors, hosted more than 170,000 attendees and media members and all, breaking all kinds of records for this giant show history.  The halls were buzzed with excitements, gadget noises (or music), as well as non-stop product demos, questions & answering, as well as deal making.  And this happened all throughout the big North Hall, Central Hall, South Hall, as well as Sands Expo, as well as Venetian Tower suites, and not even including the non-official sites, like Hard Rock Hotel and others.

The one word we can only summarize for them is "Humongous!".  Here, appropriately, we think it's fitting that we have a humongous coverage of the CES models to match the show's vastness!  It's impossible to have just one person to coverage all four days and get all the talents there.  We were lucky that we have both the industry's best to cover this event and brought you back a huge ton of pictures so that you have in person experience with these amazing models!

One of the news in 2015 is that Constance Nunes (our future cover model) is the new Toyo Tires girl.  Our sage contributor Clinton Lum got the chance to capture the first look of Constance in the Toyo uniform, at Dave and Buster in Anaheim, right after the Supercross A1 event.  With the new spiffy Toyo uniform, Constance showcased the great looks that we can anticipate in the future car show appearances.  We say, awesome!!  Totally look forward to seeing her in the future!!

Wheels and Heels Magazine / Las Vegas, NV / by Py Pai
2015 CES started way before the show day today.  The hundreds of emails from different vendors have flooded our inbox, gearing toward a huge showcase here in Las Vegas Convention Center.  By the emails from the different vendors, we saw a trend of several key technologies coming into spotlight this year. Confirmed by the walk through the convention center today, they indeed have garnered a lot of floor spaces for sure.

Most notable technologies include wearable technologies, spurred by the Apple Watch frenzy, as well as flying drones offered by many vendors now.  And the 4K continues to be the new black.  Virtual reality also got a slice of news pie after Facebook bought Oculus, and people starting to pay more attention to it.  And of course, 3D printers are like new bamboo shoots after spring rains, it's all over the place...

Now on the soft side of marketing in CES, (not software though), we did not see a whole lot of promotional models like it used to be.  In the past, we can spot one without much efforts.  However, this year, it seems that the promotional models are in sabbatical, not showing up much at all.  It really took us some efforts to highlight these awesome talents.  Of course, we only spent limited amount of time today and did not cover every square inch of the floor.  We sincerely hope that we can bring back a lot more tomorrow so that you can feel how great CES is!

To lead off the coverage, we have the awesome models from TCL, who always have top models in their booth, Serenity Shay, Kristin Reed, and our feature model Leila Knight!  They look totally awesome in red!  So striking!  And then we met up another our feature model Kirsty!  And then we also met up another our feature model Monika Cozlin!!  What an awesome trip on this regard!

Here is today's report...  More to come in the future for the rest of CES 2015 coverage!

2015 Monster Energy AMA SuperCross Anaheim 1 Event Coverage

Best of the Best Supercross Models from 2015 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Anaheim 1 Season Opener

Monster Energy Models at Monster Energy AMA Supercross Anaheim 1, 2015 Season opener
Wheels and Heels Magazine / Anaheim, CA / by Py Pai
The Monster Energy AMA Supercross is a super event, well done and awesomely executed!  The very first Saturday right after the two-days old New Year celebration, Monster Energy AMA Supercross held the 2015 season opener at the Anaheim, Angel Stadium, CA.  It is definitely a wake up call event.  The sight and sound of the competition and crowd enthusiasm definitely jolted anyone who is not yet fully awake that 2015 is here.  We will have more details about the supercross competition in the Wheels section soon.

At the Pit Party section outside the stadium, the sights and sounds have a different wavelength, which is more sinuous and high intense.  The Supercross girls are totally eye-opening to the event attendees;  in fact, they are incredibly hard to peel your stares away from!  They are the cream of the crop in the promotional modeling industry in such density, that you don't see in any other events!

When we arrived at the event, the brisk winter cold (west coast version of "cold") kept everybody bundled up and draped layer over another layer.  But these brave and amazing professionals, in their one piece wardrobe, actually most of them in even half piece or midriff baring two halves, braced the cold like they are still in summer, for the entire 6 hours work.  We totally salute these tough and strong professionals!  You are braver than the brave!

The Pit Party expo is full of people especially at the later part of the afternoon.  We interviewed our feature model, a Monster Energy girl by the trophy podium, how is it compared to the last year.  She said that it's definitely more people and we totally feel that too.  Hopefully that will bring up the nano-global-warming to these brave models.

This year's season opener is definitely a great kick off for the 2015 series with loads of fun and excitements!  We totally look forward to the next two more events in the same Angel Stadium again!
