Devon Aoki, the daughter of the late Hiroaki, owner of the famed Benihana restaurant chain, and sister of Dj Steve Aoki, is the model/actress who has captured the hearts of many with her unique and gorgeous look. Her inimitable looks are thanks to her American-Japanese-German-English heritage. Devon Aoki, or as her friends like to call her “okidangerous“, was first noticed at a Rancid concert and was signed with Storm at the age of 14. It is believed that Kate Moss had noticed Devon in a editorial and showed it to Storm and asked the agency to sign her. She broke into the industry when she replaced Naomi Campbell as the new face of Versace in 2006. She soon became one of the highest ranking models, walking for big names such as Chanel, Fendi, Jean Paul Gaultier, Yohji Yamamoto, Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Molinari and Givenchy.
She also starred in a number of movies like 2 Fast 2 Furious, D.E.B.S, Sin City, Death of a Dynasty, Dead or Alive and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead.
It’s been a while since we last heard of the model/actress Devon Aoki. She must be laying low given her recent birth of her child with husband James Bailey. We hope to see her back on the big screen or campaigns soon! But until then… whatever path chooses, be it a yummy mummy or an entrepreneur for her own clothing line, we know that she is destined for greatness.
