Tao Okamoto is probably our next most popular model in town. She's already seen all over the internet and seems to make everyone love her with her Asian looks, her kind-of-grunge-style and her length of 1.77m.
Tao is born in Chiba, Japan on may 22th 1985 (which means she's now 28!! I mean, look at her!). She started her modelling carreer when she was only 14 years old. Tao made her international carreer moving right after she moved to Paris in 2006. She was seen on the runways of these huge designers: Chanel, Dolce and Gabbana, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Yves Saint Laurent, Michael Kors,..
She moved to New York only three years later, where she was the face of various campaigns for Kenzo, Dolce and Gabbana, Tommy Hilfiger and Emperio Armani.
She's still working as a model and she's able te make people love her with just one look. She looks sweet, and she also is. She was part of a group who raised funds to help the people in Japan who were victims of the earthquake and Tsunami in 2011.
Also, she's seen in the movie Wolverine, next to Huge Jackman, so she's also working on her carreer as an actress.
Being so ambitious, and working her ass off to get where she is now, make me want to be like her. Tao made her dreams come true and she's now able to help other people, and she also does help them.
Sometimes having dreams, wanting to be something, be someone, and seeing someone like Tao, makes you realize it's all possible if you just believe you can!
Writing this, knowing her a bit better, makes me realize that I must do everything to make my dreams come true. There's no other way I would want to live my life, just living my dream. But don't forget, it takes risks, it takes hard work to achieve it, it takes hurt, pain, sweat and tears to realizing your dreams. But in the end, it will be so worth it.
So thank you, Tao, for just making my day today and show us what a wonderful, powerful woman you are!
Have a nice day
