Well and truly cementing herself in the high-fashion scene is Miranda Kerr, featuring in her very first high-fashion advertising campaign; for Prada's Fall 2010 collection. Shot by Steven Meisel, the Angel shows off the line's 'new-woman' aesthetic along with Angela Lindvall and Daria Strokous. I'm loving how Meisel features the collection in a way that tells a story almost as much as an editorial; the mix between narrative, model-interaction, and of course, product placement, is perfect.
This comes a year after being hand-picked by Balenciaga's Nicolas Ghesquière to walk for his latest spring and fall collections, as well as appearing on Miuccia's 40's themed Prada runway. Having already walked for designers including Betsey Johnson and Jason Wu at New York Fashion Week before becoming an (almost) household name, walking in Balenciaga's spring show was her first foray into the world of luxury branding. She's also nabbed a number of high fashion spreads of late, including that contraversial nun-inspired editorial in June's Numéro, shot by Greg Kadel, as well as recent spreads in V Magazine, i-D, and Vogue Russia (there's even whispers of an upcoming feature for US Vogue). With rumours of a Jil Sander campaign in the works, one thing's for sure, this angel's star is shining bright.
