LOS ANGELES, Calif.—In the wake of receiving 2010 Best New Starlet nominations from AVN, XBIZ and the X-Rated Critics Organization, Angelina Armani is moving rapidly into the next chapter of her exciting life and busy film career.

Armani recently signed an exclusive contract for representation with LA Direct Models, with news of her signing unveiled during the esteemed agency's gala ten-year anniversary celebration in Hollywood.

In a prepared statement, Armani announced that she was thrilled to be working with what she considers to be the best agency in the business: "I'm glad to be on board with [owner] Derek Hay. We work well together and everyone is so great over there. We all see eye-to-eye, they're all business, and Derek always looks out for me. He's my shark!"

While she's understandably thrilled to be with such a high-profile company, she's also quick to express gratitude to her previous agent, September Dawn of A List Talent. "I'm very happy to have worked with her, and I thank her for her guidance and support," Armani said.

Since joining forces with L.A. Direct Models, Angelina Armani has been receiving numerous requests for personal appearances and receiving both adult and mainstream film offers. In the realm of erotica, these opportunities have led to her completing a variety of projects in recent weeks, including box covers for Zero Tolerance's Hitchhikers and A Girl A Boy and a Toy, as well as a role in an as-yet-untitled movie for Wicked Pictures.

She also will be appearing at the 2010 Exxxtacy Show in Chicago July 16-18, and was recently engaged by Hustler to appear and sign at their booth at the 2010 NCTA Cable Show, the premier convention for cable broadcasters, which took place on May 11-13.

Things are just as exciting for Armani in the mainstream, where she can currently be seen on the cover of The Madeleine Haze's new album, A More Perfect Union. Always on the go, she traveled to Michigan just last week to complete a role in the independent horror bloodfest Creep Van.

With industry veteran Derek Hay now guiding her career, Angelina Armani is looking forward to taking things to the next level in every aspect of her life.
