|In brocade Balmain for Vogue Spain|
Finally!! I know this is probably my tenth post on Miranda this month, but it can't be helped- this girl is on fire. Australia's best-known model has finally landed the holy grail of magazine covers; Vogue. She took a break out of her honeymoon (bless her) to head back to LA's Milk Studios for an editorial for Vogue Spain, and it can now be confirmed, will be appearing on the September cover. This confirmation comes via the shoot's hair stylist, Ben Skervin, who took to Twitter (where else in this social media obsessed day and age?!) announcing "Miranda Kerr sept Spanish Vogue cover and story!!!!" Miranda herself even tweeted yesterday that she "had to come back to LA for a one-day shoot with Vogue." It's not the first time she's worked for the mag, having featured in spreads for American Vogue and Vogue Russia, but it will be the first time she's landed a cover. Yay!
Just when you thought it couldn't get any bigger or better for the rapidly rising star, apparently, it can. After my post on her new campaign for Jil Sander's Fall 2010 collection, she was snapped by Sebastian Kim in a consecutive religious-themed spread (sporting a crown of thorns, no less) for Numéro #115, after appearing in a nun-inspired get up in issue #114 by Greg Kadel. (I'm willing to bet she'll snag a Numéro cover before the year is out.) This Vogue cover rounds out what has been a huge week for our favourite model export (sorry Abbey Lee, we still love you), which also included a secret wedding and a confirmed pregnancy. All these high fashion gigs are responsible for the fact she has now crept up to number 15 on models.com's list of top 50. This ranking places her ahead of big high fashion names such as Hanne Gaby Odiele, Magdalena Frackowiak, Karmen Pedaru, Anna Selezneva, Sigrid Agren and Caroline Trentini. Where's her Vogue Australia cover I hear you ask? Hmm...
