devon aoki.jpg When it comes to exotic beauty, the first face that comes to mind is the fresh and freckly face of Devon Aoki.

You might recognize this delicate Japanese flower of a fashion model as the daughter of former Olympic wrestler and founder of the hibachi house Benihana chain, Rocky Aoki. Today she turns 27, but has already lived a semi-charmed kind of life.

Taken under the skinny wing of Kate Moss when she was thirteen years young, Devon replaced Naomi Campbell as the face of Versace three years later. Fortunately for Devon, Naomi did not have a cell phone handy to throw at her at the time.

Since then she's modeled for a family of first-rate fashion houses, shot dozens of memorable ad campaigns, and has starred in Sin City and the Sin City sequel, slated for release in 2010.

I just love her because she's walked the runways for Chanel and Versace, even though she's 5 foot 5.

Happy Birthday Devon.

Hope your day is A-OK-i.
