Devon Aoki

So this weekend I finally gave into everyone's raving and the constant advertising and went to see Sin City, to see for myself just how "cool" and gory it was. The mostly black and white movie with the occasional color used to emphasize and represent things- like the yellow monster in the last scene that is supposed to represent the stench of that person- was definitely very cool and very artsy indeed. O and gory. Yes, all that people eating and body part ripping is all very gory. But the person that caught my eye in this movie was Devon Aoki, who played Miho, the deadly silent killing machine of Old Town.

She had no speaking part in this movie at all, but her role as the protector and killing machine of Old Town was defintely very cool. And the awesome-ness of her very slick kick-ass moves rivalled those of Lucy Liu's in Kill Bill (which might be because of Quentin Tarantino who is the honorary director in this movie).

Devon Aoki also starred in many other movies including 2 Fast 2 Furious, DEB's and Death of a Dynasty.

But with such distinct and unique looks she is of course no ordinary actress. This 23-year-old japanese/German/English American is in fact a model, having done the catwalk for Versace, Chanel, Ungaro, Baby Phat, Blumarine, Fendi, Paco Rabanne and Loewe.

But you may recognize her as the face of Chanel in 1997. . .

. . Or more recently as the face of Lancome. She was also very popular in Asia and Europe, appearing on the cover of the Japanese and the Deutsch Vogue and ads in Asian brands like Max Factor.

The other notable character in Sin City was Alexis Bledel, as Becky, who unlike her role as Rory in Gilmore Girls, played a traitor to Old Town and was eventually killed in the end. I especially liked the fact that they emphasized her large blue eyes making her appear very innocent.

Ooo... I thought Devon Aoki was so cool when she first came on the fashion scene, but then she just disappeared.
LOVE Alexis Bledal. LOVE Gilmore Girls, absolutely my favourite TV shows. Alexis's style is very down-to-earth, not very adventurous but always stylish. She's one of those classical dressers.

Brilliant movie. I felt like I was really watching a comic book on the big screen. Devon Aoki was pure badass, and it's cool to see Alexis Bledal doing something more risky than Gilmour Girls. I guess she's learned from her GG costar Lauren Graham, who was in Bad Santa.

Not my kind of movie, but you paint it in a much better picture of something I would want to see than I've heard elsewhere.

I always find the fact that she's the heiress to the Benihana fortune to be amusing.
