Sublime beauty Alicia lands another cover!
It’s another cover for Alicia Burke. The Pulse superstar, who has appeared on covers for Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and, most recently, Elle, is this month’s face of high fashion magazine ISSUE Moda. A former winner of Pulse’s Caribbean Model Search, Burke stars in a 15-page editorial titled Sublime Beauty showing off the best in fashion.
Influenced by the words of the French couture master Hubert de Givenchy that “the dress must follow the body of a woman, it is not the body that must be adapted to the dress”, the fashion story celebrates Burke’s beauty and pays homage to the brilliance of the designers whose clothes she wears. And ‘dress’, as per Givenchy, must not be viewed in a narrow sense, for the supermodel shows off a delicate rose pink pants suit by Dior to start off the extensive editorial. Clothes from Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Nina Ricci and Alexander McQueen with jewellery from Cartier are brought to life by Burke’s outstanding model IQ. “This is what makes her so special, Alicia brings great energy to her work and she enhances the clothes she wears. She can transform a magazine page with a simple stare or subtle movement; every frame is exceptional,” says Pulse’s Co-Managing Director, Romae Gordon. Burke is ranked among the world’s top models, based on her earning power.
Here are some highlights.
