Prime Contender - Edita Vilkevicuite

Lithuanian beauty Edita Vilkevicuite makes the leap from top model to modelling's major league with a sensational debut cover appearance for Paris Vogue and an accompanying editorial feature shot by Mario Testino. Vilkevicuite goes head-to-head with Polish supermodel Anja Rubik along the sun-drenched promenades of the French Riviera in shots that pay tribute to the late great photographer Helmut Newton. The brazen pair are styled to excess by Editor-in-Chief Emmanuelle Alt in opulent furs, leather ensembles, and the bare minimum whilst dripping in glittering gems. Twenty-four year old Vilkevicuite nabs the October 2013 cover spot decked out in a Balmain leather jacket and pants from the label's Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Vilkevicuite has maintained a strong editorial and runway presence since debuting at Just Cavalli during the Spring/Summer 2007 show season. Appearances in publications including W, Allure, i-D, Muse, Industrie, V, French Numéro, and the American, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, and Turkish editions of Vogue are indicative of Vilkevicuite's wide market appeal. Vilkevicuite's high profile campaign gigs with Calvin Klein, in addition to appearances in the Pirelli 2012 calendar lensed by Mario Sorrenti and scintillating turns on the runway for Victoria's Secret's annual runway extravaganza all point towards her prime contention as a leading model amongst the current generation of Supers.
