2014 AVN Awards: Red Carpet

Former bank teller Jayden Lee bounced away from finance for a porn-starlet career just three years ago at the age of 19, but until now she had never been to the annual Adult Entertainment Expo and AVN Awards here in Las Vegas.

“It was an eye-opening experience — to say the least,” she said at the Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel, where she worked the 2014 AVN Awards red carpet in my absence for our Vegas DeLuxe coverage.

The Sacramento native with Korean and Vietnamese heritage spent most of 2013 on the dance club and convention circuit, but now she’s in big demand for XXX-rated films.

In between her laughter, here is Jayden’s report:

After appearing in Chicago, Miami and Atlantic City, just to name a few, I thought I had the packing thing down perfectly for Las Vegas.

Think again! One of the first things I learned is that working a show in Las Vegas requires much more packing. The nightlife here is so diversified; just staying at the Hard Rock Hotel had three different events a day that required at least three different outfits.

The next time, after running around everywhere in high heels, I will bring flip-flops to wear in between events!

My days began in makeup at 6:30 a.m., and I was doing media interviews until 10 a.m., with autograph signings and fan meet-and-greets until 6 p.m. I would squeeze in a very quick dinner at 6:30 p.m., then the event or a nightclub party would start with a 7:45 p.m. red carpet.

Last night, I was so tired when I returned to my room that I sat down on my bed, ordered room service and fell asleep before it arrived. I didn’t wake up until morning. Not as glamorous as you would think!

I was so nervous about being on the red caret and interviewing the other stars. It was surreal. The experience was everything I thought it would be — and nothing like I expected. The amount of people was really overwhelming at times.

There was a wide spectrum of stars: rock stars, adult legends and hopefuls like myself. One minute it would be Vince Neil of Motley Crue and then the legendary Seka.

I’m looking forward to continuing in the industry. I enjoy it all so much. I’d certainly do the red carpet, the awards show and the expo all over again. I love to meet my idols and my fans.
