VENICE, Calif.—Justine Joli, who is one of the most recognizable models and performers in the adult business today, has signed on with Rising Star PR to help build a brand that risen steadily since her debut in 2000.

With her hair in varying shades of red and milky skin, she has long been a favorite of photographers and directors and has logged thousands of hours doing both solo and girl/girl work.

Almost before the ink could dry on her contract with Rising Star, AVN put out its April issue, which features Joli on the cover.

“This is something that I’ve wanted for a really long time,” she said. “I’ve had several covers in the past and countless layouts, but this one has always evaded me. Needless to say, I was very pleased to see the issue went it went live last week.”

AVN’s April issue covers the “boom in all-female erotica,” in which the seductive presence of Joli certainly has played a role. More than a model, she spends her time acting and taking singing lessons.

“This is a great way to kick off my publicity goals,” the New York City-based starlet said. “I told them I hoped to be on the cover of AVN and the next day there it was.”
