Singers and actresses Hilary and Haylie Duff hosted the Gillette Venus Divine Legs of a Goddess contest in New York's Times Square today, part of a nationwide search to find the woman with the best legs in America, hosted by the new Venus Divine razor for women.
An 18-year-old Jacksonville, Florida woman won in front of celebrity judges who were looking for women with shapely and toned legs, and a confident and enthusiastic attitude.
"We're thrilled to work with Hilary and Haylie Duff to bring the 'Legs of a Goddess' contest to New York, home to women with some of the most beautiful legs in the country," said Nancy Teumer, Business Director, Women's Shaving, The Gillette Company. "The contest, now in its second year, helps women reveal their inner and outer beauty, and feel like a goddess ... just like they do when they use Venus Divine."
Women competed for cash and a Venus Divine prize package, plus the chance to become the national, grand prize winner. The national winner of the Legs of a Goddess contest will receive a Goddess Giveaway valued at $30,000, which includes: a Venus Divine-inspired sapphire and diamond necklace from premier jewelry designer M&J Savitt, a Goddess Getaway for the winner and three friends to a tropical resort, and the chance to appear in a Gillette Venus razor commercial.
Venus Divine is Gillette's newest women's shaving system. Featuring a sapphire blue opalescent design with pearl accents, Venus Divine gives women the closest shave for divinely smooth skin, even in sensitive areas. Venus Divine features four innovations that work together to provide the closest shave: Comfort Coated blades, Intensive Moisture Strips, enhanced skin-smoothing cushions and a redesigned razor handle. Venus Divine is available at food, drug, convenience and mass merchandise stores throughout North America.
