Edita Vilkeviciute Plays a Show-Offy Sexpot for September’s Vogue Nippon

Paging Thorstein Veblen: Conspicuous consumption is on the rise again. It seems every editorial popping up these days is all about ostentatious opulence and excess, and Vogue Nippon's "Follow That Woman," featuring Edita Vilkeviciute as a high-gloss resort-lounging femme fatale, definitely puts the other contenders in the swank arena to shame. Photog Mikael Jansson snaps the reigning diva cavorting with half-naked muscle men, sunbathing in evening wear on a yacht, and cruising the poolside scene in a voluminous red harem-pant-and-fitted-black-jacket combo that's sure to turn heads. Even if we can't quite join in with this celebration of riches, we have to admit, it's still pretty hot to look at. (Fashion Gone Rogue)
