Miranda Kerr


Born: 26 February 1983
Birthplace: Sydney, Australia
Best known as: The dimpled Australian fashion model who married Orlando Bloom

Miranda Kerr began her professional modeling career after winning a 1997 contest for the teen girl magazine Dolly in Australia. Miranda Kerr was a skinny 13-year-old at the time, and her win added to the ongoing debate over what's age-appropriate in fashion; the dust-up helped boost Kerr's career and she has since modeled for designers, magazines and catalogs. A multi-racial and dimpled brunette, Miranda Kerr gained a higher profile in 2006 when she signed a deal to promote Maybelline cosmetics and was picked to model lingerie for Victoria's Secret. She married the actor Orlando Bloom in July of 2010; they had a son, Flynn, on 6 January 2011. The couple announced in October of 2013 that they had separated and would be ending their marriage.
