Australia first fell in love with its homegrown girl Miranda Kerr during her days as a teen model for local surf brands. Then it was America’s turn when she became a Victoria Secret Angel in 2007. Next, Paris took note: Nicolas Ghesquière booked her at Balenciaga to walk his runway exclusively for a season. Not only has she since become a high-fashion model, but numerous cosmetics brands have chosen her for their campaigns because of her fresh face and skin, turning her into one of the world’s highest-paid models.

Miranda Kerr’s girl-next-door looks, personal style, and sexiness make her the prototype of today’s supermodel: a girl who excels in everything from sports to high fashion, cosmetics and lingerie, and is even willing to pose nude to support a good cause. Even though all this success could have made her a diva, she’s still the friendliest, most down-to-earth girl around. She’s using her fame to promote a healthy lifestyle through her organic skincare line, Kora.

But the truth is that what we enjoy most are her playful charm, optimistic energy, and the fearless attitude that this Terry Richardson story captures.
