Thumbs up, Down Under

OUTSTANDING TOPMODEL MIRANDA KERR IS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKED MODELS IN THE WORLD. BECAUSE OF HER UNIQUE LOOK, THE AUSTRALIAN MODEL HAS STARTED HER CAREER NEARLY 15 YEARS AGO. NOT JUST ONLY BEING FOCUSED ON HER FASHION CAREER, THE 31 YEAR OLD BEAUTY HAS BUILT A WHOLE EMPIRE IN MANY DIFFERENT OTHER AREAS.

Her own organic beauty line, a tea collection cooperation, a published book – Miranda Kerr is not only known for her runway walks or ad campaigns. Although it seems as if the topmodel is working 24/7 – she always takes her time for the most important part of her life: her little son Flynn.

SUNSHINE GIRL FROM AUSTRALIA

As the eldest of two children, Miranda Kerr was born in 1983 in Sydney. She grew up very grounded in a little town in New South Wales. Her grandmother had a farm, where Miranda could ride on motorbikes. Her parents John and Therese wanted their children to have an easy and relaxed childhood. When the Kerr - Kids were teenagers the family moved to Brisbane.

At the tender age of 13 she went to a modelling competition hosted by the Australian teenager magazine “Dolly“ – and won. Not wanting to give up her youth for work, she finished High School and started to study afterwards. When she turned 21, Miranda moved to New York City and had a couple of runway shows. She signed a contract with Next Model Management and that is how her incomparable career started. One job followed another. Until now Miranda Kerr is one of the most frequently booked and most successful models around the globe.

A VERY NATURAL BEAUTY

When Miranda Kerr started to date Orlando Bloom she was probably the most envied woman alive. Not just only being beautiful and having a very lucrative job in the model industry, the Australian hot-shot turned the famous English actor into a relationship and even a marriage. Nevertheless, it never seemed as if the model had lost her good south-wales education over the past 15 years. The 31 year old is still really down-to-earth. In interviews she is always open minded and very polite. This might be one reason, why Miranda Kerr is fully booked throughout the year. She is the spokesperson of many lifestyle companies like Swarovski jewellery and Escada perfume, and a part of the Victoria’s Secret angel network. “The clients want to sell their product and Miranda has one of those very open personalities that the public relates to.” That is, what her Sydney agent Ursula Hufnagl once said in an interview. Once in a while the fashion industry called her the “new Elle McPherson“. This must relate to the perfect body and the same origin, because she has her own distinctive look and this special beauty. The truth is: Miranda is personally and physically unique.

Short Facts

Trademark

Her dimples and cheeks. Her smile is totally unique and natural. That is why she is often booked for campaigns where she can show her smile and a happy face.

Distinctive characteristics

Miranda Kerr is a real and positive person. She seems very down-to-earth and relaxed. One reason might be her grounding home and catholic education, the other reason is that she is very spiritual. She meditates every day and does a lot of Pilates and Yoga.

Anecdote

Miranda Kerr recorded the old Elvis track “You’re the boss“ with the Australian-based Irish performer Bobby Fox in 2014. Questioned in an interview, Kerr revealed that she doesn’t take singing “too seriously“ and that this project was really just for fun.
