ENTERTAINMENT: Filipino-Japanese Model Is Slaying it on Paris Fashion Week

Filipino-Japanese model Rina Fukushi is making a name for herself at the prestigious Paris Fashion Week.

Japanese press has been praising her for her “exotic” beauty.

According to Agence France-Presse (AFP), “Rina is already the veteran of seasons in Paris, Milan, and New York—giving American models Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner a run for their money.” Receiving such admiration just means she’s really made it in the fashion world. Moreover, fashion insiders say she is poised to become a supermodel.

Rina was discovered when she was 14 years old. In a world where the preferred height for models is 5’11” and above, she is considered short at 5’9″. Still, she has modeled already for brands including Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs, Bottega Veneta, Chloé, and Miu Miu.

Hence, Rina expressed admiration for Kate Moss. The British supermodel who is famous for her “waif look,” is just 5’7″.

Here are some photos of Rina from her Instagram account.
