Fabsugar Interviews Sports Illustrated Model Jarah Mariano

Model of the Week: Jarah Mariano

Sports Illustrated model Jarah Mariano is the epitome of exotic; she's a gorgeous blend of Hawaiian, Korean, and Chinese. You may recognize her face from Victoria's Secret, Armani Exchange, Roxy, Abercrombie & Fitch, and H&M ads; it's a face you don't forget. But then again, her body is pretty unforgettable, too. It took the spotlight in both the latest SI swimsuit issue, as well as the 2008 edition. I recently chatted with the model — who at the age of 15 was discovered in Santa Monica — about bikinis, traveling, and fashion.

Three words that describe your personal style?

Bohemian, vintage, and natural.

What is the best and worst thing about modeling?

Living in a fantasy land.

What is one destination you still need a stamp for on your passport?

Halong Bay in Vietnam looks intriguing.

To read more and to see more steamy photos,

Who are your favorite designers?

I'm not much of a fashionista but I like Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen. Stella is sleek and light, but prominent. McQueen is edgy, bright, and innovative.

What was the coolest thing about being in Sports Illustrated?

Being in it!

What is your favorite bikini style and how many swimsuits do you own?

I own way too many and the list grows. I just bought five more last night. I like colors and nothing too bulky, as I can tan quicker and won't have those major lines!
