Michaela Bercu (Hebrew: מיכאלה ברקו‎; born 31 March 1967) is an Israeli model and actress.

Biography[edit]

Michaela Bercu was born in Tel Aviv (her parents are both Romanian). She started her career as model at age of 13 1/2 when her mother took her to the fashion photographer Menachem Oz. She later signed with Elite Model Management. Bercu is married to businessman Ron Zuckerman.[2] The couple have four children.

Modeling career[edit]

Bercu appeared on the November 1988 cover of American Vogue wearing a bejeweled Christian Lacroix T-shirt and a pair of faded jeans; the shot was done outdoors in natural light. It was Anna Wintour's first cover since taking over as the magazine's editor-in-chief, and was seen as signaling a break from the more formal and posed cover images favored by her predecessor, Grace Mirabella. It was also the first time a model on the cover of Vogue was shown wearing jeans.[3][4] Bercu was also the first Israeli woman to be featured on the cover of an American Vogue.[5] She was also featured in the 1990 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.[1]

Bercu also appeared in the American film Bram Stoker's Dracula as one of sensual Dracula's brides, co-starring Gary Oldman, Keanu Reeves and Monica Bellucci.[6] She briefly retired from modeling in the mid-1990s after marrying but returned in 1999 modeling plus sized clothing.[7]
