Miranda Kerr in David Jones’ Lookbook
ARTICLE BY miami PUBLISHED Aug 7, 2012
Miranda Kerr is once again making waves, though this new streak of attention has nothing to do with the said rumors of her marital woes with husband Orlando Bloom.
This time, Kerr is proving to the world that what she earns from modeling Victoria’s Secret products is truly worth her value as a model, as she is slated to appear in David Jones’ Spring – Summer 2012 Collection Lookbook, to sport a wide range of fashion items, from lingerie to evening wear.
Said to be earning an annual rate of $1 million from Victoria’s Secret, Kerr has long been known to be a versatile poser, a model who practically makes anything she wears look good.
Consistently on the rise as a model, the 29-year old Australian is the first Australian Victoria’s Secret Angel who joined in the ranks of Heidi Klum, Adriana Lima, and Karolina Kurkova in 2007, taking over the spot of supermodel Gisele Bundchen. She has since become one of the most recognized faces in the world, with her appearance in Victoria’s Secret 2007, 2008 and 2009 being her more notable and well-remembered “modeling gigs”.
Prior to her Victoria’s Secret Angel “title”, Kerr gained model notoriety by modeling for Maybelline.
Kerr’s involvement in David Jones’ 2012 Collection Lookbook falls in line with her role as the Australian department store’s new face, taking after model Megan Gale. Said to have initially sealed a six figure deal with David Jones, Kerr was ranked 4th top earning models by Forbes in 2008, and remains to be one of the highest paid models in the world.
In 2011, Kerr gained infamy by being the first pregnant model to appear in Vogue (via Vogue Australia), and by 2012, Kerr was named ambassador for Qantas. She has modeled for various designers, including John Galliano, Stella McCartney, Christian Dior, Viktor & Rolf, and Lanvin.
Given Kerr’s active and busy schedule, Annie Kelly, Kerr’s manager, really didn’t have a hard time telling the press that “there is absolutely no truth in the headline or story”, referring to the rumors of Kerr and Bloom’s marriage being on the rocks.
