Island Treats has returned to Today In Bermuda. This week we are featuring teenage beauty Alize Bailey, who hails from Sandys.


Alize is set to put Bermuda on the international map once again as she has been selected as a finalist for both the Top Model UK and Top Model Worldwide competitions.

After successfully making it through two stages of auditions, which saw her vying against over 4,000 competitors, Alize will be participating in the Editorial category for Top Model UK and will also be representing Bermuda for Top Model Worldwide. Both competitions take place on March 18, 2017, in London.

While both competitions will be judged by a panel of industry experts, there is a Public Vote Award where all proceeds go towards the Children with Cancer UK charity.

Alize, who is studying for a degree in Business Management at the University of West England, took a few moments out of her busy schedule to give a little insight on what makes her tick.

TIB: What made you enter the competition?
AB: I’ve admired the prestigious competition for a while now and I’ve always said to myself that I would at least try to audition. I went out on a limb and just took the risk. I really didn’t expect to get shortlisted, let alone selected.

TIB: How would you describe your personal style? Do you have a favourite item of clothing?
AB: I would describe my personal style as a fine balance between cute and comfortable.

TIB: What was your image of yourself growing up? Did you ever imagine you would be where you are today?
AB: If someone told me 10 years ago that I’d be a contestant in one of the most prestigious modeling competitions I definitely would not believe them! I would have never thought that I would even have the confidence to stand on a stage and model.

TIB: Who inspires you and why?
AB: I often find myself getting inspired by Bermudians who are excelling in their crafts overseas. Individuals such as Lillian Lightbourn, Shiona Turini, Nahki Wells etc. Its very motivating to know that fellow Bermudians are flourishing at an international level.
