Our contributing photographers are keeping busy at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show and offsite events and parties.

Pint-sized “Jersey Shore” starlet Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi introduced her Snooki Couture line of headphones and electronics and video and photo accessories at the trade show today, then skipped south of the Strip to Perfumania in the Las Vegas Premium Outlets to celebrate her perfume Snooki Couture and her Snooki Nails line with a meet-and-greet.

The reality TV star, mom and entrepreneur happily signed autographs and posed for photos with fans, some of whom lined up as early as 9 a.m. today for the 5 p.m. appearance. Snooki raved about her second perfume and said that baby daddy Jionni Lavalle and she have not set a wedding date yet; they want to build their house first.

Back at CES, photographers dodged the 155,000 attendees to get photos of gorgeous actress Kelly LeBrock (“Weird Science,” “The Woman in Red”) and Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister demonstrating headphones.

2012 Miss America Laura Kaeppeler, who crowns her successor this Saturday at Planet Hollywood, had a private meet-and-greet in the Las Vegas Convention Center. The stunning showgirls from “Fantasy” at the Luxor performed three numbers for 15 minutes at the Cellular Line and SuperTooth booth.

Away from the trade show, Rappers Dr. Dre and Xzibit entertained friends at STK in The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas while on a CES break. Hip-hop artist Wale performed at Skullcandy’s CES after-party at Pure in Caesars Palace.

To clarify -- and resolve any unintentional confusion caused -- Pure remains open as normal but has transformed its former Pussycat Dolls Lounge into Pure Lounge with singer-songwriter Suzie McNeil’s three sets a night, including karaoke and a dance-along with her musicians and dancers. Pure Lounge will be open Mondays through Thursdays at 5 p.m.

“Dancing With the Stars” pro dancer Lacey Schwimmer, who is producing and choreographing Claire Sinclair’s new burlesque show “Pin Up” at the Stratosphere, watched “Absinthe” at Caesars and posed for photos afterward with The Gazillionaire and Penny Pibbets.

And Dr. Dre, chef Todd English, actor-model Tyson Beckford and Philadelphia Eagles running back Dion Lew partied at the second-anniversary soiree for Marquee at The Cosmopolitan.
