Caprice Bourret (born October 24, 1974), often known by just her first name, is an American supermodel and actress.

Bourret was born in Hacienda Heights, California and won the title of Miss Teen California at the age of 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. Bourret has become one of the UK's most famous models and is popularly known by just her first name.

Bourret has appeared on the covers of more than 300 magazines published around the world, including GQ, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, Vogue, Maxim and FHM. Bourret also posed nude in the March, 2000 issue of Playboy magazine. She was voted GQ Magazine's Woman of the Year and Maxim's International Woman of the Year three years running. She has also been featured in television ad campaigns for Diet Coke and Pizza Hut.

In addition to marketing her image in posters and calendars, Bourret has also developed lines of beauty products, lingerie, and swimsuits. In 2001, she released her first single as a pop singer, "Once around the Sun", which was co-written by 90's star Chesney Hawkes.

Bourret is now moving into an acting career. She has appeared on stage in London in The Vagina Monologues and Rent. She has also appeared in the films Hollywood Flies, Nailing Vienna, and Jinxed In Love. Bourret has hosted the series Caprice's Travels and Friday Night's All Wright as well as several award shows.

In early 2005, she appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in the UK. Viewers saw her become agitated when other contestants implied that she was only taking part to boost sales of her products. She will also join Jose Canseco, Bronson Pinchot, Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, Janice Dickenson, Carey Hart, and Pepa from r&b duo Salt-N-Pepa on the fifth season of the VH1 reality series The Surreal Life.
