Miranda Kerr covers the September issue of Red Magazine. I hate that I’m saying this, but I love her whole look on this cover. I WANT that turtleneck sweater. It would look perfect in my closet. Miranda’s hair and makeup look cute here too. She’s glowing! She’s probably knocked up already. She’s not really promoting anything specific, but I guess she’s always got to mention Kora Organics, her skincare/beauty line. Does anyone use Kora Organics? I’ve always wondered if people are really into it, whether anyone swears by it. Here are some highlights from her Red interview:
The best part of being her own boss: “I love how rewarding it is to run my own business and see all my hard work come to fruition. It’s something I’d always wanted to do and I learn something new every day. I’m very involved, across everything from formulations, manufacturing and packaging to sales and marketing.
What kind of boss she is: “I’d like to think that I am an approachable boss. At Kora, we often say, ‘teamwork makes the dream work!’ To get the best out of people you need to give them time and listen to their ideas.
Dealing with rejection: “I work in an industry where there is a lot of rejection before success, so I had to learn at a young age to believe in myself and try my best not to take rejection personally, [you have to deal with rejection with] an optimistic mind. Some challenges were hard to overcome and understand, especially when I was younger. But I see them as experiences to learn and grow. I also find meditation helpful in dealing with times of stress.
The most challenging aspect of motherhood: “I think it’s the responsibility of raising a child to be the best version of themselves. Thinking back, the sleep deprivation for the first year was pretty challenging too! But the sleepless nights were well worth it. Being a mother is just a huge honour. My favourite part of the day is picking Flynn up from school. Seeing his little face light up when he sees me! It is joy and love in the purest form. It’s just magical seeing him grow and develop his own personality.
What she teaches her son about women: “At his young age I’m focused on reinforcing the basics- treating everyone with respect and, of course, to have good manners.
How she stays healthy: “I eat foods in their most natural state. I do believe in moderation though and try to live by the 80% fresh and healthy, 20% indulgence rule. As for exercise, I start the day with at least 20 to 30 minutes of exercise. I like yoga, Pilates, swimming, resistance training, skipping and walking our dog, Teddy. If I have a shoot coming up I target certain specific areas. I just try to keep active and walk as much as possible.
Can I tell you how much I enjoy that she listed “skipping” as one of her go-to activities? I’m not throwing shade! I love that she’s out there, talking about skipping-as-exercise. I stopped skipping when puberty hit and my boobs grew, but I imagine Miranda’s rigid-looking bolt-ons aren’t too affected by skipping (okay, that was shade). No one show Miranda that Prancercise video, okay?
