Two characteristics that define a supermodel: the ability to do high fashion and still have the appeal of a (extremely beautiful) girl next door. Those qualities have made Lithuanian Edita Vilkevičiūtė one of the most successful models in the business, and a favourite for everyone from Balenciaga to Victoria’s Secret. And of course, she is an H&M campaign regular. 

Edita is one of those models who doesn’t need a surname, but if you would use it, it’s pronounced Vil-kə-vi-tʃuː-teə. For this instalment of Top Model Secrets, Edita was photographed in New York and tells H&M Life about her career high points and love for Nirvana and basketball.
