Miranda Kerr

Miranda Kerr is an Australia Victoria’s Secret model who truly deserves her wings.

Jerry Nunn: So did you always want to be a super model?

Miranda Kerr: No, a friend of mine entered me into a competition when I was 14. I wasn’t even that interested in it. And then, after I finished school, and after I finished my primary education, I went and studied nutrition and psychology.
