Biography for Devon Aoki

Devon Edwenna Aoki (born Aug. 10, 1982 (37 years ago)) is an American model and actress.

Early years

Aoki was born in New York City, New York, and grew up in California and London, attending high school at The American School in London.

She was signed onto Storm Model Management at age 14. In 1998 (21 years ago), at the age of 16, Devon replaced Naomi Campbell as the face of Versace. An A-grade student at school, Devon chose not to go on to college, believing that working and traveling offered her a "broader and deeper education" than a degree.
