Caprice was to working class Jewish
American parents Dale Bourret and
Valerie Pion; her family originates from
a French-speaking area of Canada.

she won the title of Miss Teen California
at 16. After growing up in Whittier, California she
moved to the United Kingdom in 1996 to further
her career in modelling. An appearance in a revealing
dress at the 1996 British National Television Awards ceremony helped gain her public recognition.
In the years following, Bourret
became one of the UK's better known models.
She appeared on the
covers of more than 300 magazines published
around the world, including GQ, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, Vogue,
Maxim, FHM and the 1998 Swimsuit Issue of Sports
Illustrated. Bourret also posed nude in
the March, 2000 issue of Playboy magazine.

and Maxim's International Woman of the Year in three consecutive years. She has also been featured in television ad campaigns
for Diet Coke and Pizza Hut.
She continues to be the face of Paradise Poker.com,
and also appears on billboards and advertisements in London.
Bourret is becoming known as a business woman,
having launched a series of lingerie, using her image and name.
The lingerie is sold exclusively by the
UK department store chain, Debenhams. The line was well received and deemed a success, having sold millions of items, and is now in it sixth season.
Consequently, Bourret has decided to expand her
designing interest into a larger industry, and is now planning to market her lingerie line in North America and Australia.
Bourret is also moving into an acting career,
having appeared on stage in London in The Vagina Monologues
and Rent. She has also appeared in the
