After growing up in Whittier, California she moved to the United Kingdom in 1996 to further her career in modelling.

Bourret became a cheerleader at age 13. Contrary to a popular trivia item, she never won the title of “Miss Teen California”,[5] nor even participated in the pageant. In the years following, Bourret became one of the UKs better known models. She has had her breast] (now insured for £50,000) augmented, which may have led to her selection as a model for Wonderbra.

She was voted GQ magazines Woman of the Year and Maxims International Woman of the Year in three consecutive years. She has also been featured in television ad campaigns for Diet Coke and Pizza Hut.

The lingerie is sold by the UK department store chain, Debenhams and lingerie retailer figleaves. The line was well received and deemed a success, having sold millions of items, and is now in its sixth season.

She has recently launched her own range of hair straighteners.

In 1999, Bourret released her first single as a pop singer, “Oh Yeah” (#24), then follow-up single “Once Around the Sun” (also #24), which was co-written by 90s one-hit wonder Chesney Hawkes.

She fooled them into using it to obtain money illegally for her from a newspaper who had said her future mother in law called her a golddigger. Caprice repaid the money and avoided facing a criminal charge.

He insisted that Caprice is “very happy”, and added that she was holidaying with her boyfriend.[8]
