AGTA Towers Over Times Square
One component of the American Gem Trade Association's annual Spectrum Awards competition is a fashion photo shoot featuring the winning jewelry pieces. This year, AGTA was able to recruit two veteran Hollywood actresses to model the jewelry in a photo shoot styled by celebrity stylist Tod Hallman and shot by Ben Cope. Regina King, currently starring in TNT's crime drama Southland, and Illeana Douglas, of Goodfellas and Cape Fear fame, spent a day in a Los Angeles studio posing with the 2012 award-winning jewelry.
On Tuesday, January 17th, AGTA sent out an article to the press on Regina's photo shoot experience with AGTA to coincide with the season premier of Southland. (see article here) The article was accompanied by one of the photos from the shoot, featuring jewelry by Mark Schneider, Belle Brooke Barer, Manya Tessler and Adam Neeley. Along with 266 press placements around the world, the photo appeared on the Reuters boards in Times Square and Las Vegas with the caption "Southland's Regina King models AGTA Spectrum Awards jewelry."
