Miranda Kerr
was born in Sydney to mother Therese and father John in 1983. She started her life in a small town called Gunnedah in New South Wales alongside her younger brother Matthew.

The stunning star has mainly English ancestry but also has Scottish and French roots.

When Miranda’s family moved to Brisbane she was educated at All Hallows’ School. Nutrition and health psychology were two of the subjects that Miranda studied.

Aged 13, Miranda entered a contest which saw aspiring models compete for the chance to appear in Dolly magazine. She won and jetted off to Sydney for a photoshoot.

Miranda was later signed to Chic Management and posed for surf brands such as Billabong, Roxy and Tigerlilly.

Keen to raise her profile even further, Miranda decided to move to New York and in 2004 she agreed to be represented by NEXT Model Management. Soon after she was asked to walk in catwalk shows and front campaigns for Betsey Johnson, Levi’s, Roberto Cavalli and Alex Perry.

In 2006, Miranda Kerr appeared in the music video for Kanye West and Pharrell Williams’ track Number One and made a cameo in an episode of reality show Project Runway.

2007 was pivotal for Miranda. She became the first Australian Victoria’s Secret Angel, which gave her the opportunity to pose in number of the US lingerie firm’s annual fashion shows. Miranda parted ways with the company in 2013.

It was also the year she started dating actor Orlando Bloom. The pair married in June 2010 and welcomed son Flynn Christopher Blanchard Copeland Bloom in January 2011.

Sadly, Miranda and Orlando decided to separate in 2013.

Away from the catwalk, Miranda Kerr runs skincare brand KORA Organics and keeps in shape by practising yoga.
