Justė Juozapaitytė (born 19 April 1990 in Palanga, Lithuania[2]) is Lithuanian female model and beauty pageants contestant, Miss Photo title winner, who currently lives in London.

Beauty pageants[edit]

In 2007 Juozapaitytė participated in the LNK reality show Grožio mokykla (Beauty School) where she reached the final and qualified for the Miss Lithuania 2007 contest.[3] In the Miss Lithuania contest Juozapaitytė won the Miss Lithuania photogenic 2007 title. In the same year Juozapaitytė won the Miss Fashion TV 2007 crown.[4] By winning this crown she became the face of the channel for one year.[5]

Top Model[edit]

Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model[edit]

In 2011 Juozapaitytė participated in Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model, Cycle 7. From the early stages of the competition, with her boyish look, Juozapaitytė proved to be a contender for the title, gaining second call out in the first week of the competition. In episode 7, Juozapaitytė won a catwalk challenge, and gained a first call out in episodes 11, and 12. She found great favour with clients, and judges, but lost out in episode 13, when Jade Thompson was declared the winner.

Juozapaitytė has since been critical of the show, suggesting that she may have lost based on her Lithuanian roots. She suggested that after Maltese winner, Tiffany Pisani, another non-British winner would have caused 'an outcry if a non-British or Irish model took the prize for a second year running.’ However, she conceded that 'Jade is different - she has a unique look'.[1]

Russia's Next Top Model[edit]

During season five of the Russian adaptation of Top Model, Top Model po-russki (rus. Топ-модель по-русски), Juozapaitytė became one of the 20 semi-finalists to make it onto the show. She was admitted into the finalized cast of fourteen contestants.
