  • Fun Faith Fact!: Miranda Kerr posed in an issue chained to a tree for an issue of Rolling Stone Australia magazine to raise awareness for the endangered koalas.

Miranda Kerr is a model that rose to fame when she became the first Australian Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2007, replacing Gisele Bundchen. She grew up in a small town called Gunnedah, New South Wales and began modeling at the age of 13 despite her countryside upbringing of racing motorbikes and riding horses on her grandmother’s farm.

Kerr eventually moved to New York City and had many successful endeavors including becoming a NEXT Model Management model, being featured on the Bravo TV Show Project Runway, and signing a cosmetic contract with Maybelline New York. She has worked with many high fashion brands including Balenciaga and Prada and became the first pregnant model for Vogue. In 2009, she launched her own brand of organic skincare products called KORA organics with partner George Moskos. She also is the author of a self help book titled, “Treasure Yourself,” aimed at helping struggling female teens.
