LAS VEGAS, Nev.—Exclusive Adam & Eve contract star Alexis Ford will take the stage as trophy girl for the 2010 AVN Awards Show on Jan. 9 at the Pearl Concert Theater inside the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

"Alexis Ford is a great choice for trophy girl since we always pick hot, new, up-and-coming stars to appear on stage and get their first national exposure," said Paul Fishbein, president of AVN. "She's a real sweetheart—she's adorable and so far has shown true professionalism. Must be those New York roots."

Alexis Ford said, “I’ve picked out the most perfect red dress and am so excited about the AVN Awards! It’s an honor to be chosen as their trophy girl. I love that I’m able to follow in the footsteps of many of the biggest porn stars today!”

Alexis Ford joins the ranks of up-and-coming stars who have furthered their careers after serving in this capacity at the AVN Awards Show. Last year’s trophy girl, Angelina Armani, is nominated for Best New Starlet in the 2010 Awards Show.

Ford’s 2010 career is off to a brilliant start. She appears on the covers of two magazines this month (Hot Video, Xcitement) and will see the release of her debut adult film, American Made: Alexis Ford, in late January. In addition, she will be signing each day at the Adam & Eve booth during the Adult Entertainment Expo. For more about Ford and Adam & Eve, go to AdamAndEve.com.
