Miranda Kerr is a famous model, known for being the first Australian Victoria’s Secret Angel. Read further to learn all about her life, career, and income.
Miranda May Kerr was born on April 20, 1983. She grew up in Gunnedah, New South Wales. Her parents, Therese and John, had another child named Matthew.
During her stay in Australia, she rode horses and raced motorbikes. She describes that part of her life as the one where anyone could just be themselves.
The Kerr family moved to Brisbane so the kids could have a proper taste of city life. After graduating at All Hallows’ School, Miranda studied health psychology and nutrition.
Back in 1997, the then 13-year-old Kerr won the Dolly Magazine model competition. The shoot done for this occasion sparked some controversies as she was photographed in her bathing suit. Due to this, many were worried that the girl was the victim of pedophilia.
She signed to Chic Management. The contract allowed her to work with brands such as Lisa Ho, Finetti, Levi’s, Alex Perry, Blumarine, Roberto Cavalli, and more.
In 2006, the model appeared on Project Runway, which is a popular TV show. She modeled for one of the contestants, Daniel Vosovic. Around the same time, she signed a contract with Maybelline.
Some might even recognize her from Kanye West and Pharell’s music video for their single “Number One”.
Her fame exploded once she started working for Victoria’s Secret. As previously stated, Kerr was the first Australian VS angel. She became the face of their PINK campaign in 2006. During the next four years, she appeared on their runways, which were screened on four continents.
She had a brief appearance on “How I Met Your Mother”, alongside several other fellow models. She became the face of Clinique fragrance and replaced Megan Gale as the new face of David Jones.
During the summer of 2009, the model posed naked for Rolling Stone Australia, trying to help raise awareness for the endangered koalas. In an environment and health light, we should note out that she also launched a brand of organic skincare products with George Moskos.
In 2011, while she was six months pregnant, Kerr was featured in Vogue Australia. That makes her the first pregnant woman to model for Vogue. Two months after giving birth, she went straight back to work, taking part in Paris Fashion Week. That same year, Harper’s Bazaar took nude photos of the model during their photoshoot.
2013 was somewhat of a rough year for the model. Both David Jones and Victoria’s Secret decided not to renew contracts with her, stating that she had quite a “difficult reputation”. However, the model’s camp noted out that the woman was just not able to commit the necessary time for the brands.
She quickly replaced them with Swarovski, as she was named the face of their that year’s fall campaign. In early 2014, she partnered with H&M and was featured in campaigns for Wonderbra and Reebok. She walked for Sonia Rykiel, both opening and closing that show.
During the last few years, the model has been working with Jeremy Scott, Louis Vitton, Riccardo Tisci, and Buick. She also took part in Australia’s Next Top Model.
If you look up her relationships, the Internet takes you back as far as 17 years ago, when Miranda was engaged to Adrian Camilleri, who was a finance broker. The man, later on, went to jail as he was found guilty for fraud, and the two cut all ties.
Then, she dated the singer of Tamarama, Jay Lyon. The two dated from 2003 to 2007; therefore, they had enough time to collaborate. The model starred in their music video for a song named “Everything To Me”.
Several months after their breakup, Kerr jumped into a relationship with Orlando Bloom. The two got married in July 2010. On January 6, she gave birth to their son, Christopher Blanchard Copeland Bloom. Two years afterward, the two had announced their split.
She was spotted with eleven years younger Justin Bieber, which caused the young superstar to get psychical with Bloom. It was never revealed if anything happened between them, so we can only speculate about the two.
More recently, she dated Evan Spiegel, the co-founder of Snapchat. The two got married in 2017 and have a son together named Hart Spiegel. Back in October 2019, she gave birth to their second child, Myles.
