Devon Aoki’s face is like a doll baby whose cheeks you’re dying to pinch! Her undeniably Asian looks, complimented by hazel eyes and light brown hair can be attributed to her Japanese father and German and English mother. You’ve probably heard of her family, Devon’s dad is founder of the Benihana chain, and we all love hibachi style dining!

As a youngster Devon gatecrashed a concert and was scouted while on site. The same year, her godmother introduced her to Kate Moss, who became her mentor and lead her into some amazing opportunities. Such as replacing Naomi Campbell as the face of Versace at 16.

We’re impressed by what Aoki was able to accomplish with her relatively short height, 5 feet 5 inches to be exact. Besides Versace, she has also modeled for Lancome, Chanel, YSL, Moschino, Fendi, Baby Phat, TIffanys and Co. and the list goes on… She also appeared in 2 Fast 2 Furious (during filming she actually earned her license and learned how to drive), Sin City, Mutant Chronicles, War, and Dead or Alive.

Now Aoki’s life has calmed down. She recently gave birth to a baby boy in June 2011 and is engaged to her sweetie, James Bailey.
