Miranda Kerr is an Australian model married to English actor Orlando Bloom. She has once stated in an interview that she’s English, French and of Scottish descent.
During her childhood in Australia she raced motorbikes and rode horses on her grandmother’s farm. At the age of eighteen she entered and won the 1997 annual Dolly magazine / Impulse Models competition.
In early 2006 she appeared in the finale episode of the TV show Project Runway, modelling clothes for contestant Daniel Vosovic’s final collection.
She debuted with the US market when she signed a lucrative cosmetics contract with Maybelline New York.
Following her success with Maybelline, Kerr became the first Australian model to be offered a contract with Victoria’s Secret in 2007 – replacing Gisele Bündchen.
Upon her acceptance, she became the first ever Australian Victoria’s Secret Angel, joining the famous stable of international models already signed to the lingerie giant.
She practises Buddhism, and believes ‘we have a responsibility to bring peace and harmony to our lives and the world’. She maintains her physique through daily yoga, light jogging and a diet of steamed vegetables, fresh fruit and fish.
She is without doubt an attractive young lady, who believes that she was well grounded in her Australian countryside where there wasn’t any pretentiousness and no one really cared what you were wearing. ‘You could just be you,’ she says.
In fact, true to her word – as shown in her recent photo shoot in Miami Beach, Florida – she giggled as she bared her breasts while shooting an ad for her new make-up range, Kora Organic.
Given her background and her earthiness, I wonder whether she was trying to prove that, not unlike her products, her boobs are also organic. No silicone there, to boost her desirable assets – as Mother nature took good care of that.
What a cracker of a lady she’ll prove to be. Hence, she is my woman of the week.
