In 2001, Ōta won the Grand Prix along with Yui Aragaki at the 4th Reader Model Audition of the magazine Nicola.[5] After that while modelling with Nicola, she appeared in other magazines and media. For her publications other than her model participation, Ōta collaborated with the fashion brand Pou Dou Dou, and served as the editor-in-chief of hotikiss, as well as the photograph collection hotikiss (both previsions).

She has appeared in many television advertisements for products such as Shiseido, Sony and Aohata (Kewpie). In one case, Ōta appeared in an advert for Ezaki Glico's Water Ring Kiss Mint gum, instead of Mariko Takahashi appearing.

She won the "Best Teen Fashionista Award" at the MTV Student Voice Awards 2006. Ōta later moved her agency from Okazaki Models to Anoré in March 2010.
