    such an interesting mix of ethnicity.

    This girl is drop dead gorgeous. Paula has a one of a kind beauty that transcends all nationalities. What I love though is that she has the face of an angel – the perfect mix of innocence and allure, but without the Victoria’s Secret body. I hope this girl is noticed by high end fashion houses (Givenchy, McQueen, Gaulthier) and tears up the runways of Milan and Paris…

    Stunning beauty, although her face is not perfectly symmetrical and her looks are almost the same from all pictures. Hope she is not a one trick pony. But stunning for sure.

    Wow it was a good wake this daily duo! This girl is just gorgeous, I love asian models and am sure all the people in the business who will look for a Asian will pick up this one…the weirdest thing I have as a feeling is that being Brazilian japanese by the pictures here she could be a Beligian model from the Belgian fever last decade…I might be to confuse to be understood but making it short…she can have an amazing career!

    she reminds me very much of former Finnish top model Ninja Sarasalo. but with a sharper chin.

    Hi Erwin … even having the same look in all those pictures … she looks stunning … it’s hard to do a lot of faces since the “portfolio” pictures are just 4 … the rest are polas …

    Can’t stop looking at this girl, this japanese and brazilian mix results in perfection not having perfection completelly…and it becomes just fascinating and unique! This girl is right the type of girl you see a photo and you feel you wanna wear exactelly the same what she is wearing in a desperate trial to look as misteriously sexy as she does!

    No kidding she is brazilian, She is Japaneseeeee! Well maybe I agree to share the nationality with Brazil.
    She will be in a list having Ai Tominaga, Tao Okamoto and Paola Kawanishi as Japanese top models!
