Logan Stanton

Perhaps Dana White has a thing for quapa girls? As president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, he’s managed to employ not one, but two gorgeous quarter-Asian ladies to be Octagon ring girls: Arianny Celeste and Logan Stanton.

Here is Logan Stanton’s description of her ethnicity, courtesy of her Twitter:

Logan debuted as an Octagon girl at UFC 92 in December 2008. She was considered by many people to be the most beautiful of the Octagon girls, but she was unexpectedly let go a year later, after UFC 107 (her contract expired and it was not renewed). She has since landed a number of modeling gigs, including Guess Jeans and Roxy Swimwear, as well as other photo shoots.

Logan is on Twitter and Facebook. Also check out this interview she did while employed by UFC and this one she did afterwards.

Quapa girls are the new half-Asians

Meiko

Last Friday, an article about the future of Asian-American identity, written by Jeff Yang, was published on SFGate.com (the website of the San Francisco Chronicle).

Within the article is this bombshell: by 2020, 20% of all Asians in the U.S. will be multiracial, and by 2050 that percentage will increase to 33%. This, despite the recent decreasing trend of interracial marriages involving Asian-Americans.

Also within the article is another bombshell: Meiko (pictured above), a folk-pop singer who is 25% Japanese, 75% Caucasian, and 100% gorgeous.

The article refers to quarter-Asians like Meiko as “quapas” (which validates my earlier usage of the word – I thought I was just making it up). Check out the list of quapa girls that I’ve featured so far, and you’ll agree that they’re as beautiful as half-Asians though their Asian features may be less prominent.

As the number of multiracial Asian-Americans increases in the next few decades, we are going to see more and more quapas in the U.S., to the point where there may be as many quapas in the future as there are hapas now. It’s on this basis that I’m making the statement in the title of this post (which was inspired by this statement made by Barney Stinson in the pilot episode of How I Met Your Mother). Also on the basis that they’re hot. :)

Chanel Iman

Chanel Iman

Chanel Iman Robinson is a fashion model perhaps best known for her work with Victoria’s Secret — she recently earned her wings. Born in Atlanta and raised in Los Angeles, she is three-fourths African-American and one-fourth Korean (her mother is half Korean).

With a name like Chanel Iman, you figure she was destined for a career in fashion. She was in fact named for the fashion designer Coco Chanel, but not for the model Iman (rather, it’s a family name). Besides being a model, she also runs a fashion boutique with her mother.

You can follow Chanel on Twitter. Also check out her official website, her Wikipedia entry, and her Victoria’s Secret model profile for more info and pics.

Hapa birthday Arianny Celeste

Arianny Celeste

I’m not sure if Arianny Celeste counts as hapa since she is only one-fourth Asian (maybe the word to use is quapa?) but you get the idea. The important thing is it’s her 25th birthday today, and as usual I’m using the opportunity to post a bunch of pics of the birthday girl.

And, if you’d like to see her in her birthday suit, you can check out nude photos from her recent Playboy photoshoot at this very non-work-safe link.

Arianny is on Twitter @AriannyCeleste.

Reiko Aylesworth

Reiko Aylesworth

Reiko Aylesworth is an American actress of Dutch, Welsh, and Japanese descent. You might remember her as Tony’s wife Michelle on the TV show 24, or perhaps you have seen her more recently on the TV show Damages. You probably did not see her in her nearly naked glory in the movie The Killing Floor, but you might want to!

She has that vaguely Asian look that is the result of being a quarter Japanese. She’s quite pretty, and she has a great smile!

As usual, Wikipedia is your friend if you want to find out more about her. Also check out her IMDB entry, this interesting fan page, and this even more interesting former fan page.
