The former Victoria's Secret model shows off her incredible body for Net-a-Porter's latest issue of EDIT as she reveals why she really stood down as an Angel
Miranda Kerr has given us serious bikini body envy this morning with these brand new stunning shots taken by Mariano Vivanco for Net-a-Porter’s EDIT magazine.
Wearing a selection of gorgeous designer swimwear, the former Victoria’s Secret model and mum to Flynn, 2, shows us just why she’s become a style and beauty icon.
It’s been two months since Miranda stepped down from her role as an Angel for the global underwear brand and her departure was surrounded in controversy as reports claimed that she was ‘let go’ for being ‘too old’.
But the 30-year-old has rubbished those claims, telling EDIT: ‘Ed [Razek, who has been casting the models for 15 years] and I are really good friends, and we both decided it was impractical for me to continue. I have such fond memories of working with them.’
Miranda, who is now Net-a-Porter EDIT’s official Health and Lifestyle Editor, proves her modelling days are far from over, rocking an array of designer pieces – including a white floor-length kaftan by Norma Kamali, a black crocket dress by Melissa Odabash and an amazing black bikini by Shimmi – to name a few.
Now spending her time in New York working on her KORA Organics skincare range and looking after her two-year-old, Miranda reveals that while she might wear the trousers in her business – when it comes to home life – she sits back and her let’s hubby-of-three-years Orlando Bloom take the lead.
She says: ‘I am quite dominant in my career, so what really works for me when I come home, is to relax more into the feminine side.
‘If you’re really an alpha female, you don’t allow [your partner] to have the space to feel like the man in the relationship. Maybe I am too traditional, but men feel important when you ask for their help, instead of thinking you can do it all on your own.
She adds: ‘My mistake in my relationships has been to feel that I can do it all on my own: I don’t need a man. That is definitely a mistake. Women generally want to feel loved and appreciated. It’s something that I am working on every day, trust me! It’s a challenge for me to do that.’
The Australian supermodel relocated to New York from LA when her home was targeted by the famous teenage burglars, the ‘Bling Ring’ – the story of which has now been made into a film, starring Emma Watson.
They stole Miranda‘s lingerie and Orlando’s collection of watches. But she says: ‘The weird thing is that I am not attached to things: they come and they go. It could have been worse, that’s what I always say about everything. I mean, no one was hurt.’
Breezy, beautiful and she’s got a banging body in a bikini. Could she be any cooler?
