Behind this exotic name hides one of the most talked about models of the runways, even if only 21 this natural beauty has already been the face of some of the most prestigious campaigns such as Calvin Klein, Versace and Yves Saint Laurent. With such striking features and dainty eyes this Lithuanian beauty has learned to work the catwalk like a pro, and strange is the fashion show or campaign nowadays that doesn’t include Edita in it. As mentioned earlier Edita is from Lithuania, the country that is known for just that, creating consolidated top models, at the moment Edita being the brightest star on the sky. The road towards success started in 2006 when she was scouted from the streets of Kaunas, her hometown. Edita herself has confessed that she never thought of herself as the model type. Never even having the dream of becoming a model, and never had been able to walk in high heels.

That didn`t stop her, though, soon enough she debuted in Milan walking for Cavalli in 2006, right after being named the new face of the moment by Vogue Italia. After that everything just happened naturally, Edita doing the usual tour through the fashion capitals Paris, London, Milan and New York, working with blue chip names like Chanel, Kenzo, Balenciaga, Chloe, Louis Vuitton and many, many more. In 2008 she interpreted Coco Chanel in the short film Chanel Paris – Shanghai, directed by no other than Karl Lagerfeld.

So if 2006 to 2008 were good years for Edita then 2009 to 2010 have been superb. Edita has done about 30 fashion shows per season, and also been the face of innumerable campaigns, starting from D&G to Armani and from Jimmy Choo for H&M to cosmetics contacts with both Dior and Yves Saint Laurent. Furthermore we could see Edita strutting down the catwalk for Victoria’s Secret for the past couple of seasons. In the end Edita Vilkeviciute was most certainly born to be a top model, and 2beMag’s Talent Fan Club can’t wait to see what the future will hold for this beauty.
