Miranda Kerr bared nearly all in the September edition of Harper's Bazaar, which features Gwen Stefani on the cover and hits newsstands Aug. 21. Miranda posed for the magazine wearing just her birthday suit and a pair of over-the-knee boots. We don't see much of Miranda's style in the issue, but she spoke with Harper's about her sartorial favorites. Miranda, who just wrapped up an Australian vacation with her husband, Orlando Bloom, and son Flynn Bloom, also opened up about diet, moderating her taste for adventure as a mom, and the secret to staying balanced. Here are highlights from Miranda in Harper's Bazaar:
- On her style icons: "I have always admired Audrey Hepburn's style and my Nan has always been a style icon for me. Growing up I would play in her wardrobe and was very influenced by her. She taught me that you don't need to have a lot of money to have style. It's the way you put things together and how you carry yourself."
- On her diet philosophy: "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. So much so that I am now a certified health coach practitioner. I love when we are all together as a family and I can cook really healthy, delicious meals for them. 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 those things."
- On her taste for adventure: "I definitely still love motorbikes; however, since having Flynn I haven't been riding these days. A lot of my adventures come from chasing Flynn around and watching him grow."
- On staying balanced: "I believe in having a vision for the future but living each day at a time. Time seems to slow down for me when I focus on staying 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."
