Miranda Kerr On Her Style and Motherhood: "I Focus on Staying in the Moment"

Miranda Kerr appears in this month's issue of Harper's BAZAAR.

Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr is super indeed! Her style turns heads everywhere she goes, she’s married to (sigh) Orlando Bloom and has a beautiful 8-month-old son, Flynn.

She talks to Harper’s Bazaar this month about the looks she relies on, how she stays healthy, and how her son keeps her centered. She also shows off her super-slim post-baby figure in a rather revealing exclusive shot!

Her personal style icons: Audrey Hepburn, and her own grandmother, whose farm she visited often while growing up. “She taught me that you don’t have to have a lot of money to have style. It’s the way you put things together and how you carry yourself.”

The one item she just bought for fall: A leather baseball cap she saw on Instagram.

Her diet philosophy: “Rather than diet, my family instilled in me a real appreciation and passion for good health and organic living. I adopt the 80/20 rule – 80 percent good, 20 percent indulgent.”

How motherhood has affected her healthy lifestyle: “I live by the philosophy that beauty starts from within, and I make a conscious effort to fill my body with nutrients through the food I eat. Becoming a mother has made me even more aware and more passionate about nutrition and wellness. I love when we are all together as a family and I can cook really healthy, delicious meals for them.”

How she stays hydrated and healthy: Kerr drinks warm water with lemon in the morning and lots of purified alkaline water during the day. She also has Noni juice twice a day, a treat her grandmother introduced her to.

Her life with Flynn: “Most of my childhood was spent outdoors climbing trees, swimming in the river, riding dirt bikes and horses, and I would like Flynn to experience all of these things.”

On riding dirt bikes now: “I definitely still love motorbikes; however, since having Flynn I haven’t been riding much these days. A lot of my adventures come from chasing Flynn around and watching him grow.”

On being a working mom: “Time seems to slow down when I focus on living in the moment, and that helps me maintain a sense of balance. When I’m with Flynn, my phone is switched off and I stay away from my laptop. It means the time I do spend with him is quality time. Life seems to be busy for most people, and if you know you are doing the best you can, then there really is nothing more you can do than that.”
