Miranda Kerr is the star of the last issue of The Edit, the weekly magazine of luxury online retailer Net-a-porter.
The model opens up in an interview for the magazine about her precious off-duty days and where she feels happiest.
MIRANDA’S FASHION FAVORITES : “I like what Stella McCartney stands for and she’s good at what she does. Alexander Wang, too – I’m a very tactile person so I like fabrics that feel good. Especially now, with my son; I like it when [fabrics] are soft so I can cuddle up to him and they don’t get creased.”
ON EATING HEALTHY : “I grew up learning the benefits first-hand from my grandmother,” she says. “She had a vegetable patch at the back of her house and she would teach me how to cook – all very simple but wholesome. Learning the benefits of eating organic food and the nutrient value was ingrained into me, then it was something that I wanted to learn more about because for my job I need to feel my best so that I can give my best.”
ON HAPPINESS : “We all have bad days and negative emotions. But I’ve realized it’s important to sit with it and let it pass, and if it doesn’t pass, choose a thought that will help it pass. Focus on what it is that you’re grateful for. Having perspective is key.I feel happiest when I’m with my son at the beach or the park, and we get to enjoy ourselves without paparazzi. Privacy is the most important thing, especially being a mother; when I have an off-duty day, it’s challenging if there are photographers around. It becomes a circus and I don’t want that for Flynn. If I’m on my way to work and they get a photo, it’s fine. But if somebody wants to have a day off… Can you imagine being a builder and having to build on your day off? I get my photo taken for a living, and when I have a day off, they’re still taking photos. I have perspective about it, but it’s just nice to have little moments when they don’t intrude.”
