Evil Angel and ‘Fashionistas’ Arouse a Krave-ing

LAS VEGAS – John Stagliano and his Evil Empire held one of the hottest and most spectacular opening night parties of the 2008 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo Wednesday night at Planet Hollywood's Krave nightclub. A who's who of the porn world filled the venue to witness a special midnight performance of Stagliano's celebrated Fashionistas stage revue.

Cast members swung from long sashes above the heads of partygoers while on stage, fetish gear-clad dancers strutted down a central runway, twirled chairs about and sent literal sparks flying with a pyrotechnic-equipped prop buzz saw.

Among the star-splashed crowd shouting hoots and hoorahs of approval were Stagliano, Tricia Devereaux, John Leslie, Joey Silvera, Kevin Moore, Belladonna, Sasha Grey, Roxy DeVille, Gia Paloma, Claudia Downs, Tommy Pistol, Gianna Michaels, Ashlynn Brooke, Van Styles, Adrianna Nicole, Jew Hefner, Monstar, Luscious Lopez, Joe Gallant, Jandi Lin, Wendy Williams, Buck Angel, Dana DeArmond, Bobbi Starr, Aurora Snow, Jada Fire, Mr. Pete, Alexis Texas, Tony Batman, Sarah Jane, Sophie Dee, Tee Reel and many more.

This was the first of two large stage productions being put on during AEE by Stagliano. The second, a completely new and original piece, will be presented at the 25th Annual AVN Awards Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
