Supermodel mom Miranda Kerr has quickly become a style icon. Her killer off-duty outfits are applauded by countless style blogs and magazines for their spot-on seemingly effortless mix of sex appeal and elegance.

She has secured a place amongst fashion influencers as one to keep a consistently trained eye on. Season after season, the Aussie beauty gets it right.

With her beauty and girl-next-door charm, Miranda is one of the most in-demand models, securing magazine covers, major ad campaigns, brand ambassador gigs and runway shows. She became a true style star globally when she was named the first Australian Victoria’s Secret angel, and has been a high profile figure since.

She started modelling at 14 after winning a magazine model competition in Australia and modelled there for a few years before relocating to New York. After appearing in a multitude of campaigns both on runway and print campaigns, she signed a lucrative

cosmetics contract with Maybelline New York in 2006.

As Kerr’s popularity continues to increase, she has consistently been on Forbes’s world’s top-earning models list since 2007, ranking in at number six earning an estimated $6.5 million (Sh650 million). Expanding beyond the modeling world, Miranda has her own organic skin care and beauty line called KORA Organics and is an author of self-help books.

The star, who released a holiday-themed jewellery collection for Swarovski mid last year, when asked, described it as; “I really wanted to create something that was meaningful, something that feels really special—whether you’re giving it to someone or buying it for yourself. Sort of like a little blessing, a personal sentiment that can uplift or inspire.” There were recurring charms throughout: a heart chosen because, in the words of Kerr, “everything we do comes from either fear or love, and I wanted to remind people to come at things with love; a snowflake representing our collective diversity and a wing symbolic of grace and freedom.”

Style tips we can learn from the beautiful girl-next-door supermodel, tossing a coat over your shoulders can make any outfit look cool, a tailored jacket gives instant polish to casual jeans and ballet flats, pull of a monochrome look by mixing different textures

and be ladylike in sheer by keeping skirts below the knee.

A mother and supermodel, Miranda Kerr is a definite style star!
