    this question is completely hypothetical, at least to me...so let me give you a hypothetical answer as well...

    YES! You can! ...:p...just kiddin...

    but you have to contact the model I guess and get her permission first or something...or there are sneaky ways! :D

    there are no LEGAL ways to use a model image that you find on Google Images (no matter where you live).

    Use images from a free stock photography website, and check if the image in question has a "model release" if you want to be perfectly legal.

    At least using stock images (even without model release), or not-free stock images that you otherwise "acquire" is still better than using Google images, because at least the intent to distribute the image was there.

    do not use the images from social networking sites!

    ...and a disclaimer has no legal validity.

    Search Google for "FREE STOCK IMAGES" and "FREE STOCK PHOTOGRAPHY" etc...

    Google search with relevant keys would bring you free images.
