Born in Brazil to a property tycoon father and model mother, and with Mario Testino and Mick Jagger as godparents, Alice Dellal was always destined for great things. She began modelling in 2005, and despite being only 5ft6, has forged a successful career for herself. She has appeared in the likes of British Vogue, Dazed and Confused, Elle and Nylon, and, in March 2009, was featured on one of the twelve covers for i-D’s The Best of British. Alice is as famed for her modelling as she is for her unique, grungy sense of style, particularly the brazen undercut shaved into her long blonde hair. Her look and carefree attitude has inspired designers and stores the world over, and Alice has modelled in campaigns for Agent Provocateur, Burberry, Mango, Alexander Wang for Uniqlo, and most recently Chanel, as well as walking for designers like Vivienne Westwood and Valentino. Still cool, and still way ahead of the style pack, Alice is currently signed to Next Models and lives in London.
