Zakocela, who arrived in England by bus when she was just 16, has been working in Europe, the U.S., and beyond ever since, modeling for the likes of Australian Cosmopolitan, and revealing her impossibly toned physique in moody editorials for French magazines including Madame Figaro. 

In her biggest break yet, she recently hit St. Barts to pose for her sultry Maxim cover shoot.

Here’s a sampling of the rising model’s most jaw-dropping photos:
