Golden Gate owner Derek Stevens hosted a screening party for the SyFy series “Naked Vegas” on Tuesday night that featured Rio magician headliners Penn & Teller, who wanted the bodypainting artists to turn models into a deck of playing cards.

Body wrangler Drew Marvick brought the artists and models, including Nicholas Herrera, Wiser Oner, Kelly Belmonte and Heather Aguilera, to the celebration downtown, and it didn’t take long for the newly painted bikini bartenders and dealers to dance atop their bars.

Crowds of spectators jammed Fremont Street to get a look at the risque paintwork and were given disposable cameras to capture the colorful painting. Derek, who also owns the D Las Vegas downtown, had asked the “Naked Vegas” team to paint models to camouflage with the casino walls and then jump out to surprise guests.
