Vilkevicuite, or just Edita for short, is a staple on the runways of Paris, Milan and New York, where she’s walked for just about every imaginable major brand.
The 24-year-old model debuted in 2007 for Just Cavalli spring/summer 2007 shows and quickly built a portfolio that includes such brands as Paul Smith, Preen and Marios Schwab. She sat out Milan and New York the following year, but made a splash at Paris Fashion Week and hasn’t looked back.

Since then, she’s walked for Balenciaga, Chanel, Dries van Noten, Miu Miu and Louis Vuitton. She broke into Victoria’s Secret the same year at the brand’s fashion show in New York City. She’s walked in the show for the next three years.
In 2009, she walked in more than 35 shows, adding Shiatzy Chen, Chanel, Stella McCartney, Givenchy, Zac Posen and Dolce & Gabbana to her resume.
But she really sizzles in editorial campaigns, repping for brands like Karl Lagerfeld, GAP in Japan, Dior Beauty and Emporio Armani.
She’s appeared in French Vogue, photographed by Lachlan Bailey, and captured the cover of W magazine last year, photographed by Mario Sorrenti. She also appeared in a nude spread last year with actor Zach Efron in Interview magazine.
In her Lui magazine shoot, she poses for Paris-based photographer Cedric Buchet in various states of undress on a dark night in a funky European car.
She wears clothes–that is, when she’s wearing clothes–by American Apparel, Agent Provocateur and Fifi Chachnil.
