Alice Burdeu was born on January 27, 1988, in Melbourne, Australia. Like many other women who are born beautiful, Alice Burdeu had dreams of being a fashion model early on. The tall beauty applied for a spot on Australia’s Next Top Model and was subsequently invited to participate.
In March of 2007, Alice Burdeu debuted on the show’s third cycle. Her appearance marked a new beginning in her personal and professional life. She dyed her hair red and gained attention from viewers for her frank attitude and thin physique. In the end, Alice Burdeu proved to be a hit with audiences and judges alike, as she won the competition. Her lavish prize featured a modeling contract with Priscilla’s Model Management, a photo shoot with Vogue Australia, a new car, and a stint as a model for Napoleon Perdis.
Hot off of winning Australia’s Next Top Model and scoring her first Australian magazine cover for Pages, Alice Burdeu was excited by the chance to shoot an editorial for the September 2007 issue of Vogue Australia. Her excitement turned to terror and enthusiasm in alternate doses when Vogue’s editor decided to feature her on the cover instead. With that, Alice Burdeu was off to New York, where she promptly signed a modeling deal with Elite Model Management.
After posing for the cover of two magazines in Singapore — Luxury and Luxx Living — and her first in the U.S. for Verse, Alice Burdeu made a splash on the catwalk in February of 2008 at New York Fashion Week. For this occasion, she modeled the designs of Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch and Charlotte Ronson, among others. She went to Paris that same month to open for Jean-Charles de Castelbajac. Her work didn’t go unnoticed, as Models.com and Style.com both spotlighted her in individual features soon after.
As 2008 continued, so did Alice Burdeu’s success. Vogue Australia selected her for another cover shoot in July. The Italian version of Marie Claire also came calling for an editorial shoot. In addition, Alice Burdeu was a face for both the Celine and D&G fall campaigns and also returned to the catwalk for an Autumn/Winter 2008 extravaganza that had her model for over 30 designers, such as Moschino, Lanvin, Alexander McQueen, and Louis Vuitton.
Alice Burdeu has managed to maintain her busy schedule in 2009. She participated in the Spring/Summer 2009 show for a number of designers such as her old friend Jean-Charles de Castelbajac and Marc Jacobs. Outside of the runway, she landed a series of campaign contracts for Blumarine and Sonia Rykiel, as well as additional magazine editorials for Vogue Australia, British Elle, Velvet, and Harper’s Bazaar. With her eye-catching looks and obvious determination, Alice Burdeu is a model who will light up the industry for many more years (and magazine covers) to come.
