Miranda May Kerr (born 20 April 1983)is an Australian model, best known as one of the
Victoria's Secret Angels. She was the first Australian addition to the Victoria's Secret
campaign, and was the face of Australian fashion chain Portmans and now David Jones Limited.
Kerr entered modeling in the fashion industry in her mid-teens after winning a 1997
Australian nation-wide model search hosted by Dolly magazine and Impulse fragrances.
Kerr was born in Sydney but raised in Gunnedah, New South Wales, a small rural town. Her parents are Therese and John Kerr, and she has a younger brother named Matthew. During her childhood, Kerr stated she "raced motorbikes and rode horses on [her] grandmother’s farm" and describes her early life in the Australian countryside as "very grounding ... there wasn’t any pretentiousness and no one really cared what you were wearing. You could just be you."
Her family moved to Brisbane to allow Kerr and her brother to experience city life. She graduated from All Hallows' School and planned to study nutrition before pursuing modeling
