Pulse’s Ali­cia Burke is the New Cover of SHE Caribbean

The Star (St. Lucia) - - REGIONAL -

Pulse model Ali­cia Burke can add the moniker Caribbean Queen to her ex­ten­sive re­sumé of ac­com­plish­ments on the in­ter­na­tional cir­cuit as she is the new cover of SHE Caribbean. And al­though the cover car­ries no for­mal ti­tle, this lat­est achievement crowns an in­cred­i­ble year for a young woman who, in less than 12 months, has be­come ar­guably the most suc­cess­ful model that Ja­maica or the wider Caribbean has pro­duced.

She is cer­tainly the fastest ris­ing and the most her­alded from the region. No one be­fore her, in any given year, has done the body of work, in qual­ity, quan­tity or pres­tige, that she done in her first year.

Burke’s SHE cover was shot in Lon­don by Swedish pho­tog­ra­pher Saskia Law­son, with hair and makeup by Lau­ren Alice @ Mandy Coak­ley Rep­re­sents. Styling was by Emily Cock­lin.

It seems the world can’t get enough of this new star. As Vogue said in a snapchat post ‘Ali­cia is one of six bomb­shells tak­ing over the world of mod­el­ing’ and ear­lier on vogue. com: ‘Ali­cia is the model that Ralph Lau­ren, Stella McCart­ney and Donatella Ver­sace can’t get enough of.’

Burke is the first Ja­maican or Caribbean model to shoot the cover of Ital­ian Vogue. But her cover was ex­cep­tional as it was a three-page fold-out cover with her name em­bla­zoned on the sec­ond fold. She shot 12 pages of French Vogue ear­lier this year and was the cover and 20 plus pages of Harpers Bazaar, to name a few of her ed­i­to­rial feats. Ac­cord­ing to Vogue, after she ap­peared for Gucci, “when a great model ar­rives, the world takes no­tice!”
