What is your favorite shoot you’ve ever been involved in?
Every shoot’s cool and a new experience, so I try to absorb everything and everyone I can. Shooting this with Cheyne was especially cool because he came over and basically hung out in my apartment in Chinatown in NYC. It was intimate and personal and I think the photos he took captured that.”

What about fashion shows?
The VS show was such a big show for me and my career. It was really cool to be involved. It’s kind of wild to check out the scene. Walking Marc Jacobs was pretty cool, too. And I always love walking for Jeremy Scott. Just fun.  ”

Miranda Kerr

This Aussie beauty has been in some of the most pants warming advertising campaigns of all time. Between her Maybelline billboards and the Victoria’s Secret commercial featuring her flying around in her underwear, she is a face no one forgets. Voted #19 in the’s Top 99 Women 2008 Edition.

Miranda was born in Sydney, Australia, in the small village of Gunnedah. Much to the dismay of the estimated 17 unmarried men in the town, Miranda was discovered in a Covergirl competition in 1997, assuring she’d never sleep with anyone from her small town for the remainder of her life.

After her victory, she modeled only part time, spending the remainder of her time studying in school. But as her fame increased, the local media used her youth as an opportunity to debate about pedophilia in the fashion industry, which one can only assume ruined most people’s ability to enjoy looking at Miranda’s photographs.

Her career continued, as controversy or not, her smoking hotness could not be denied, and in 2004, she moved to New York City, and was immediately signed by “Next” modeling agency. Quickly her popularity grew and she became one of the coveted “Victoria’s Secret Angels,” a group of women that included Gisele Bundchen and Tyra Banks.

Although the women were capable of banding together to use their hotness to take over the world, they apparently lacked the drive and organizational skills to do so, and settled for just being really rich, famous, hot chicks.  Miranda was recently signed as the face of Californian fashion retailer “Arden B.” Hopefully they’ll release a line of swimsuits that are backed by an aggressive ad campaign.
