To begin with, she grew up in California and London, where she was educated at The American School of London. Her father, Rocky Aoki (Hiroaki Aoki), was Japanese, firstly an Olympic wrestler and then the founder and owner of the Benihana restaurant chain. Her mother, Pamela Hilburger, is of English and German origins. She is also the half-sister of DJ Steve Aoki who is called Kid Millionaire. Aoki was discovered in New York at a concert of the band Rancid. She began her career as a model at age 13, signing a contract with Storm Model Management at the age of 14. In 1998, Devon replaced Naomi Campbell to become the face of Versace. After matriculation from high school, Aoki decided not to enrol into university, and to pursue a career, even though she had high marks.

Concerning her professional career, Aoki has been a model for Lancôme, Chanel and Versace. Aoki is a popular model although she is only 1.62 m which is unusual for this job as the required height is at least 1.73m; her measurements are 84-58.5-84 cm and size 34. Despite her height, Aoki has participated in various advertising campaigns for Chanel Couture (with Karl Lagerfeld), Versace (Steven Meisel), YSL, Hugo Boss and others. These activities have contributed significantly to her rising net worth.

In later modelling activities, Aoki chose International Creative Management for representation and her career management. Aoki made the cover three times for the magazine ID. She also posed for the photographer Leslie Kee in charity book “Super Stars” dedicated to the victims of the tsunami in Asia in 2004. In 2007, she created jeans for Levi’s for an Asian online. Currently, she now works with One Management New York (her mother’s property), d-Management in Milan and City to Paris.

In her early career, Aoki also appeared in music videos of such artists as Electric Barbarella, Duran Duran and Elton John. She also participated in the video for Ludacris “Act a Fool”, which is also a part of the soundtrack of “2 Fast 2 Furious”.

As an actress, Devon starred in movies “2 Fast 2 Furious” (2003), “DEBS” (2005), “Sin City” (2005), “Dead or Alive” (206) and “Rogue: The Ultimate Showdown and Mutant Chronicles” (2007). She did not have a driving license before participating in “Fast and Furious 2”, so she learned to during filming. She then starred alongside Thomas Jane and Ron Perlman in the science fiction film “Mutant Chronicles” (2008).

Finally, in the personal life of the model and actress, Devon is married to James Bailey, and they have a daughter and a son.

Quotes

#Quote
1I have lots of brothers and sisters, two of whom are younger than myself, so I rely on my phone, text messaging or e-mailing to stay in the loop and communicate when I'm away for big chunks of time.
2I think people like to think I'm in some way financially dependent on my family--on my dad--but the fact of the matter is I've been emancipated from my father since I was 14 years old. That's something people don't know or understand.
3I always thought models had to fit a certain mould. I never thought I had what it takes. I'm too small and my look's pretty weird.
4I'm pretty athletic, but I'm not very strong.
5It's difficult to see yourself up on screen without being a critic.
6I think it's important that there is a change, especially in fashion. I'm pleased to be part of a "new breed" of models who perhaps don't exactly fit the status quo.
7Everyone has their own insecurities, regardless of how you look or how people perceive you, but sometimes people give their insecurities too much power. Defining beauty is simply a matter of opinion. For me, real beauty has very little to do with the structure of someone's face or body.
8I had professional stunt racers teaching me how to drive.
9I'm really not that weird. I'm a combination of a lot of different things. Maybe it's just easier to make me look weird than another model who is specifically Caucasian.
10In modeling, my height was a big challenge to overcome, because I was pretty much the shortest girl on the runway whenever I was doing the catwalk. The clothes didn't fit and the shoes didn't fit. It was an issue, but luckily, it didn't prevent me from working.
11I lived in London for eight years and I like to say that I am two parts American and one part British because I lived there for a third of my life.
