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. Kerr rose to prominence within the fashion industry in her mid-teens after winning a 1997 Australian nation-wide model search hosted by Dolly Magazine and Impulse fragrances. Her youth caused controversy in the Australian press, which raised concerns about the ethics of showing such a young girl in skimpy clothing. Kerr’s career has continued to expand, and as of 2008, she has achieved international fame.
