Life's a beach! Edita Vilkeviciute smoulders for the camera as she shoots Victoria's Secret swimwear campaign in St Bart's

Edita Vilkeviciute doesn't need any photoshopping to look like an angel.

The Lithuanian-born Victoria's Secret star first graced the catwalk in 2007 but is fast becoming their next big star.

Edita was frolicking in the sand on the Caribbean island of St Bart's for a steamy photo session on Sunday.

The five-foot-nine top model wore a variety of swim attire including a fetching animal print bikini that showed off her glowing tan and curvy figure.

It must have been heaven for the 24-year-old to be able to work in such beautiful surroundings.

The blue-eyed stunner, who lives in Paris but travels a lot to New York for work, was clearly basking in the warm sun.

Edita switched to a pink paisley and green string bikini and let the surf ripple over her toes as she pursed her lips for the camera, loving every minute of it.

At another point, Edita was spotted in a blue bustier bikini that fit her figure like a glove.

Edita, who strut her stuff for Victoria's Secret Fashion Show three years in a row, is obviously just as comfortable cavorting on a beach as she is on the runway.

'I also really love apples and I have to drink some nice hot tea and have a juicy fresh sliced apple before I can start my day.'

That's not to say that Edita doesn't indulge now and then.

'I love sweets and chocolate cheese cake is a guilty pleasure of mine.'

Edita added: 'As for traveling on my jobs it gets sometimes difficult. Since I am a family oriented person it’s hard when you’re away from them for so long. I start to miss my family my sister and my mother and father.'

 
Looking good: Edita stays healthy by eating an apple and drinking hot tea every morning

Wearing a green dress with a flower in her hair, Jennifer waves to her guests feeling like a princess before one of the porters buckles under the weight, dropping the birthday girl - much to everyone's horror.

In the second ad, Jennifer's character Lisa prepares to blow out the candles of a three tier cake surrounded by her family and friends.

Just as she does a giant mirror ball falls covering her, and her guests in icing.

'And then all these agencies started calling and then we just kind of went (to do cold readings) out of boredom. And then my poor mother, it was all I talked about, my obsession.'

That obsession of course landed Jennifer on the SAG stage on Sunday night were she look flawless - well almost flawless.

Initially the 22-year-old shone in a navy Christian Dior Haute Couture dress, Chopard jewels - which included a 38-carat diamond necklace and emerald-cut 6-carat diamond studs and a diamond ring, Roger Vivier clutch, and Jimmy Choo shoes.

However, the dress became her undoing - literally - ripping apart when she went to collect her award. Always the professional, Jennifer held the dress together and carried on.

North Korean parents 'eat their children' after being driven mad by hunger in famine-hit pariah state

A starving man in North Korea has been executed after murdering his two children for food, reports from inside the secretive state claim.

A 'hidden famine' in the farming provinces of North and South Hwanghae is believed to have killed up to 10,000 people and there are fears that incidents of cannibalism have risen.

The grim story is just one to emerge as residents battle starvation after a drought hit farms and shortages were compounded by party officials confiscating food.

 
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has spent vast sums of money on two rocket launches and prompted fears of a third

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has spent vast sums of money on two rocket launches despite reports of desperate food shortages in the country and concerns that 10,000 people have died in a famine

Undercover reporters from Asia Press told the Sunday Times that one man dug up his grandchild's corpse and ate it. Another, boiled his own child for food.

 

Despite reports of the widespread famine, Kim Jong Un, 30, has spent vast sums of money on two rocket launches in recent months.

There are fears he is planning a nuclear test in protest at a UN Security Council punishment for the recent rocket launches and to counter what it sees as US hostility.

One informant was quoted as saying: 'In my village in May a man who killed his own two children and tried to eat them was executed by a firing squad.'

 
Farming communities, such as these pictured outside the capital Pyongyang last year, have been desperately hit by drought which has led to reports of people turning to cannibalism in a bid to ward off starvation

The informant said the father killed his eldest daughter while his wife was away on business and then killed his son because he had witnessed the murder.

When his wife returned the man told her they had 'meat' but she became suspicious and contacted officials who discovered part of the children's bodies.

Jiro Ishimaru, from Asia Press, which compiled a 12 page report, said: 'Particularly shocking were the numerous testimonies that hit us about cannibalism.'

Undercover reporters said food was confiscated from the two provinces and given to the residents of the capital Pyongyang.

A drought then left food supplies desperately short.

 
Cannibalism has also been reported in the vast network of prison camps inside North Korea, such as Camp 22, pictured, where 50,000 are believed to be imprisoned

The Sunday Times also quoted an official of the ruling Korean Worker's party as saying: 'In a village in Chongdan county, a man who went mad with hunger boiled his own child, ate his flesh and was arrested.

United Nations officials visited the area during a state-sponsored trip but local reporters said it is unlikely they were shown the famine-hit areas.

It has not the first time that reports of cannibalism have come out of the country.

In May last year, the South Korean state-run Korean Institute for National Unification said that one man was executed after eating part of a colleague and then trying to sell the remains as mutton.

One man killed and ate a girl and a third report of cannibalism was recorded from 2011.

Another man was executed in May after murdering 11 people and selling the bodies as pork.

There were also reports of cannibalism in the country's network of prison camps.

North Korea was hit by a terrible famine in the 1990s - known as the Arduous March - which killed between 240,000 and 3.5million people.
