A native of Khabarovsk, Russia, Vita got her start in modeling at age 13 and moved to New York City in 2011 at age 17. Over the past five years, the blue-eyed beauty has rocked the runway for Victoria’s Secret and steamed up magazine ads for Lilly Pulitzer, BCBG and Rebecca Minkoff.
As a self-proclaimed traveler, Vita enjoys flying around the world for shoots and learning about different cultures. At one point this swimsuit goddess dreamt of being a stewardess so she could see the world outside of her hometown. Recently, Vita has been learning Italian—10 new words everyday—because of her Italian fiancé.

Myla was raised in Racine, Wisconsin.
Her modeling career began after she won Miss Teen Wisconsin at age 16. With her appreciation for the human form, Myla doesn’t just enjoy being in front of a camera, she also likes to be behind the camera, as seen in her self-photographed spread for the first non-nude issue of Playboy.
Another stunner: Lais Ribeiro was also named. Laisa had on a reddish brown string bikini as she leaded against a rock. Behind her were an array of waterfalls

A native, of rural Miguel Alves, Brazil, Lais began modeling in 2009.
She made her modeling debut in the Brazilian version of ELLE, before moving to New York City in 2010. Lais’s curvaceous figure fueled her rise to the top of the New York fashion scene by walking the runway for top designers—Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang, Michael Kors, Roberto Cavalli and Dolce & Gabanna, to name a few—but it was her first appearance at the VS Fashion Show which cemented her status as one of the world’s top models.

Her skin looked flawless and radiant, as she opted to wear a little foundation and some pink blush.
She added natural pink lipstick and a little bit of smokey eye make-up to complete her beach chic look.
