MAXIM Magazine’s Hot 100 Party Made Moomba Melt
Guests Included Leonardo DiCaprio, Prince, Tobey McGuire, Giselle and Tommy Lee
NEW YORK, May 4 /PRNewswire/ — MAXIM magazine celebrated their second annual HOT 100 supplement — the definitive list of the hottest 100 up-and-coming women in film, television, music, sports, and fashion — with another one of their legendary parties.
MAXIM honored this year’s list of emerging talent at LA’s newest hot spot, Moomba. The event, which was sponsored by Haagen-Dazs®, Absolut Vodka and Evian, was a decadent affair featuring Haagen-Dazs® Ice Cream sandwiches and shots as well as specialty Absolut cocktails made with new Haagen-Dazs flavors chocolate and raspberry gelato.
Approximately 600 guests were in attendance including MAXIM’s Hot 100 girls Krista Allen, Summer Altice, Gisele Bundchen, Jolene Blalock, Rachel Blanchard, Brooke Burke, Jessica Cauffiel, Scarlett Chorvat, China Chow, Rachael Leigh Cook, Majandra Delfino, Eliza Dushku, Megan Ewing, Jennifer Gimenez, Carol Grow, Ali Larter, Bai Ling, Josie Maran, Isabella Miko, Laura Prepon, Cameron Richardson, Tessie Santiago, Kim Smith, Marla Sokoloff and Alicia Witt.
Other celebrity guests included David Blaine, Tammy Blanchard, Rosa Blasi, Tia Carrera, Morris Chestnut, Christian de la Fuente, Leonardo DiCaprio, Taye Diggs, Jermaine Dupri, Adam Duritz, Sean Fanning, Brendan Fehr, Peter Gallagher, Topher Grace, Paris Hilton, Craig Kilborn, Justin Kirk, Korn, Tommy Lee, Tone Loc, Tobey McGuire, Chante Moore, Patrick Muldoon, Adrian Paul, Jaime Pressly, Prince, Simon Rex, John Salley, Rob Schneider, Ivan Sergei, Hal Sparks, Michael Vartan, Marlon and Shawn Wayans, Kari Wuhrer and Harland Williams.
Following last year’s event, a MAXIM invitation has become both a creative tour de force and one of this town’s most sought-after invites. MAXIM models in refrigerated ice cream trucks hand-delivered pints of Haagen-Dazs® chocolate gelato to Hollywood glitterati. Each pint sported the specially designed HOT 100 label invite wrapped around the container.
Gracing the cover of this year’s HOT 100 is no ordinary female, but instead a computer-generated woman — making MAXIM the first men’s magazine to do anything of the sort. The distinct cover honor goes to Dr. Aki Ross, the lead character and heroine from the upcoming summer film, “Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within.”
After months of planning, the cover photo of Aki was created through a collaboration between MAXIM, Columbia Pictures and Square Pictures. Dozens of the world’s top graphic artists worked with the hottest CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) machines and CG (Computer Graphics) software available to forge new frontiers in digital content creation.
The MAXIM Hot 100 list has established itself as the place to discover hot up-and-coming female stars. These 100 women are sure to be some of entertainment’s hottest stars who will dominate our cultural landscape for the next 12 months.
